Katherine Plays The Stanley Parable

Photo on 9-8-14 at 11.56 AM

I did a let’s play of the game The Stanley Parable. I love watching these on youtube, and I wanted to try my and at one of them.  It’s down below. Beware of some cursing.

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Part 4

Part 5

Part 6

Part 7

When I recorded it, I used the application Photo Booth for recording me, and I used Quick time player to record the screen. I had to mute the video of me, as when I put the two videos together, there was a noticeable echo with both of them playing.

I also had trouble keeping my eyes at the camera. During the video, I am clearly looking down at the computer screen. I also should have used a mouse, as my clicking on the finger pad can clearly be heard in the video.

Also, it was nearly impossible to line up the footage of me with the footage of the game. Just when I thought I had it, another audio glitch came up. I decided to just uploaded the play-through with the game footage, since it already had my voice. Many other let’s Plays just have the audio of the player.

I also had to  find a way to post it on the blog. The video was 20 minutes, and was too big for the site. I tried splitting it in half, and it was still too big. I had to put into multiple parts so that I could put it up on the site.

I then considered doing another play-through with only text and pictures. I took screenshots of the game as I went along. It worked out pretty well.

I call the following Katherine Duncan and the Confusion Ending.

The game begins.

My boring office. My job is just pushing buttons. I’m not kidding.

Worst. Job. Ever.

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.30.25 PM

Where is everybody?

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.30.29 PM

I just asked where my coworkers were, narrator. Shut up.

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.30.59 PM

This workplace is boring without everyone missing!

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.31.14 PM

Observed room 417 to annoy the narrator. It worked. He’s pretty easy to annoy.

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.31.35 PM


So I’m supposed to go through the left door?

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.31.42 PM


Let’s go through the right door, everybody!

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.31.47 PM

Of course, the narrator is not amused. Sure, I wanted to go to the employee lounge.

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.32.00 PM

The lounge is marvelous!

*two hours later*

Okay, the narrator has made it clear that I need to get out of the lounge or else.

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.32.10 PM

Now, the narrator wants me to go in the left door. I don’t want to make him angry, so I’ll listen to him this time.

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.32.15 PM


He wants me to go straight.

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.32.20 PM


Hey wait, It’s an elevator!

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.32.26 PM

Let’s ride it!

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.32.38 PM


I’m going to regret this, aren’t I?

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.32.46 PM

The narrator is not happy, and we are probably lost.

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.32.50 PM

So where do we go now?

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.32.58 PM

Okay, the left. Should have known.

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.33.03 PM



Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.33.07 PM

Okay, right it is.

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.33.11 PM

GAH! Make up your mind!

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.33.37 PM

Please be the way…

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.33.41 PM


It seems we are on track!

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.33.45 PM

It’s pretty creepy in here…

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.33.50 PM


What’s that room up ahead?

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 4.33.59 PM


A spoiler? Really?

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.22.50 PM

Well, this isn’t good.

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.22.59 PM

Wait, restart?

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.23.10 PM

Oh my god, he restarted!

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.24.03 PM

Well, that isn’t normal. He’s going to restart, isn’t he?

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.23.10 PM

Of course.

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.26.36 PM

Well, that didn’t help at all!

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.27.05 PM

Wandering doesn’t seem to help either.

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.27.17 PM

I don’t even think this place is part of the story!

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.27.39 PM

Yay! I win!

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.27.49 PM


Really? Jerk.

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.23.10 PM

Will this even help?

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.28.19 PM


So, this will keep us on track, right?

Screen Shot 2014-10-24 at 9.46.29 PM

It’s doing fine so far.

Screen Shot 2014-10-24 at 9.47.00 PM

That’s a bit unusual.

Screen Shot 2014-10-24 at 9.47.21 PM

Okay, what the f**…

Screen Shot 2014-10-24 at 9.47.39 PM


This adventure line is more trouble than it’s worth.

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.31.42 PM

And it led us right back here.

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.31.48 PM

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.23.10 PM

This is getting old.

So, the narrator decided to create his own story without the adventure line.

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.32.57 PM

It tried to come back, but we ignored it.

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.33.25 PM

F888k you, adventure line.

Oh my god. My mind just exploded. The narrator refused to do any more.

Maybe we’re free.

We can do-

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.36.18 PM


Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.36.29 PM

Well, it seems everything is back to normal.

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 4.37.27 PM


*Besides that one scare, it seems that everything is bad to normal, and the narrator remembers none of this. The End*

So that was my text playthrough.

So which was better? The text or the video? I personally liked the video better.
