The Stanley Parable
In case you didn’t know “The Stanley Parable” is a first-person exploration game by developer Galactic Cafe. Here’s how the developer describes this game:
“You will play as Stanley, and you will not play as Stanley. You will follow a story, you will not follow a story. You will have a choice, you will have no choice. The game will end, the game will never end. Contradiction follows contradiction, the rules of how games should work are broken, then broken again. This world was not made for you to understand.”
So if you haven’t already tried these games now is a good time to check them out. The two titles will remain free until March 26. Next week on the epic store, Figment and Tormentor x Punisher will be free, so keep an eye out for that too.
