The Stanley Parable physical

For those who have been holding out for a physical release of The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe on Switch, we’re happy to report that this is now happening. iam8bit and Crows Crows Crows are partnering together on the boxed versions.

The Stanley Parable will be sold physically as part of a collector’s edition only. Each copy contains the game, Reassurance Bucket Manual, “Official Stanley Parable Ultra Deluxe Merchandise” stickers, 5” PVC Stanley figurine (also called Figleys, Stanlurines, Mini-Stans, Stanley-Figs, Figlureanlurines, Figanleys, Stiggley-Wiggleys), soundtrack download, and exclusive cover art by Fatih Oztürk.

The Stanley Parable first released digitally for Switch in April 2022. We have some information about it below.

You will play as Stanley, and you will not play as Stanley. You will make a choice, and you will have your choices taken from you. The game will end, the game will never end. Contradiction follows contradiction, the rules of how games should work are broken, then broken again. You are not here to win. The Stanley Parable is a game that plays you.

The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe is an expanded re-imagining of the critically acclaimed, award winning indie game The Stanley Parable from 2013.

Everything that was in the original Stanley Parable is here, preserved just like it was back in 2013. But The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe also dramatically expands the world of the original game with new content, new choices, and new secrets to uncover. The labyrinth has just gotten bigger.

In addition, the game has been visually upgraded to reflect modern technology while faithfully preserving the tone of the original game. Accessibility features have also been added to the game, including localization of in-world text, colorblind options, and content warnings.

And just as before, the impeccable voicework of Kevan Brighting will accompany you every step of the way.

In The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe, everything you remember has been recreated, yet it’s different somehow. We’ve been here before, haven’t we? Is Stanley still the same as he was back then? Or is it you who has changed?

Pre-orders for the The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe Switch physical release open on March 28, 2024 here. iam8bit will also be selling a 2xLP, CopyConductor 980 TX instructional audio tape, and “The Button That Says The Name Of The Player Playing The Game”.
