While “Galactic Cafe” and “Crows Crows Crows” may not have made the decision on which consoles the “Ultra Deluxe” version will be on, they did use the “Unity” game engine to remake and run on consoles. They mention on their company website that they may make your favorite consoles compatible with the game. What we do know is that the video game will be available for Microsoft Windows, Linux, and Macintosh via Steam.

In the adventure, indie video game, “The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe,” you will play as Stanley (the protagonist in first-person perspective) and a narrator (Kevin Brighting as the voice actor) will verbally direct where you should go and what you should do. If you refuse to obey the narrator’s commands, you get punished.
Since there was an excellent amount of pathways to choose from in the original game and we were teased about the upcoming version, what we can expect, can leave us guessing. In layman’s terms, we would be guessing about the countless scenarios for activities and punishments.
In the original “The Stanley Parable,” Stanley is employee 427 in an office. In that office, if you as Stanley follow the narrator’s directions, passing through the furthest left door, then the story about the missing employees continue. However, if you do the opposite of what the narrator wants, you’re in deep trouble.
Choose the furthest right door and the narrator changes the story, trying to convince you to return to the proper path. It is hilarious to disobey the storyteller. It is so hilarious that in 2014, Davey Wreden and William Pugh, the “Designers” and “Writers” of “The Stanley Parable” won the “NAVGTR Award” for “Writing in a Comedy” and “Performance in a Comedy.”
The “Ultra Deluxe” version will contain the entire “Stanley Parable” and be the same game as you played in the original (which can be beaten in approximately 5 minutes from following directions). Although the “Ultra Deluxe” version has a smaller script to follow, it is more focused.
After you beat the walking-simulator game by following directions, you can just replay the game, seeing what was in other rooms. This process will introduce you to a series of alternate endings.
In another path, the narrator puts a thought inside Stanley’s head, trying to convince Stanley he is thinking it. It is a visually psychological office, where Stanley is monitored. The longer Stanley remains in the office, the more he may feel like he is going insane. In addition, the the game will have new content with new endings.
A parable is a simple story used to illustrate a moral lesson and throughout “The Stanley Parable,” Stanley encounters morals based off of the decisions he make. If you enter the wrong room, the narrator may mention that you are a real person and that the game you are playing is actually a video game (breaking the fourth wall).
