Anyway, I am still yet to play this wonderful game due to... computer and money reasons :P
To emulate the experience just hit your head against a brick wall while listening to a "The best of Stephen Fry" CD until it feels good. I assure you it is magical.

The staircase ending (YOU KNOW THE ONE) made me very sad.

Also you should all watch The Stanley Parable - Rapheal.

I hope that was a legit message that they got. Great example of Missed-The-Point-Completely. You could tell that at some points while reading the message, the narrator was having trouble keeping a straight face.

Going through the message again, though, I'm pretty sure it was a fictional person. Oh well.

I enjoyed this for the $10 I spent. I probably played 4 hours and rushed through as much as I could, but I imagine I still missed something. Not terribly motivated to go back and dissect it for other endings, but it was a fun experiment to play the game. Got plenty of lulz too, especially out of the "developer" ending.

I hope it was real. In the credits, they thank Raphael. : )

Uh, I've got a slightly spoilerish question.

I've played this 2 hours and I really love it. I'll probably play it a lot more too.

Knowing Belgium, everyone will vote for themselves out of mistrust for anyone else, and some kind of weird direct democracy coalition will need to be formed from 11 million or so individuals.
