Gaming In The Wild #25: The Stanley Parable & The Beginner's Guide

by John Rogers

Still: 'The Beginner's Guide' (2015: Everything Unlimited Ltd)

The Stanley Parable and The Beginner’s Guide are two deeply unusual games by US developer Davey Wreden. This week's show takes a dive into the alternately surprising, hilarious and disturbing waters of their bizarre metafictional stories.

Also covered: the troubled release of Lost Ember, and some first thoughts on Ori & The Will Of The Wisps.

You can join the Gaming In The Wild Discord community – and help fund the show – for as little as $3 per month via our new Patreon page.

The music on this episode is from the featured games, by Yiannis Ioannides (The Stanley Parable) and Ryan Roth (The Beginner's Guide). The outro music is from Night In The Woods.
