The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe is a reimagining of the original game, which came out in 2013. Besides better graphics and other improvements, it also adds new content, serving both as a reissue and a sequel.
The Stanley Parable, which was based on a free Half-Life 2 mod, is a postmodern interactive adventure. It offered many choices and dug deep into a relationship between the player and the narrator.
