    Bought it, and I will play it. Or it will play me. That’s actually probably what’ll happen.

    @4 Oh my god. Steal a PC, hook it up to the interwebs, and play the demo!

    @5 I love how it felt like Portal 2 except it didn’t have any real gameplay. It was just the jokes.

    The wall joke killed me :P

    I played the demo. I will summarize in 3 word: What. The fuck.
    It made me lol, so I guess I have to buy it now. The wall joke killed me too. I don’t know who the narrator is, but he is good.

    The game is somewhat different though. It’s not all jokes. A big part of it is choice. Do you follow the narrator or do you do everything you can to piss him off?

    I always did the latter. So on my first playthrough I was trying to find literally every opportunity to not do what he said. I managed to “end” the game a few times.

    *mild, mild, mild spoiler*

    “But in his eagerness to prove that he is in control of the story, and no one gets to tell him what to do, Stanley leapt from the platform to his death. Good job Stanley, everyone thinks you are very powerful.”

    That is one of the results I ended up with :P
