Well done, Stanley.

The quirky, narrative-driven Stanley Parable has sold over one million copies since its release on
PC last October, as revealed by the game’s creator, Davey Wreden, on Twitter (as IGN originally spotted).

The Stanley Parable earned critical acclaim in 2013. It was a runner-up for GamesBeat’s 2013 Game of the Year award. It was originally a Source engine mod released in 2011, but the first-person experience received a standalone, high-definition version in 2013. It joins other successful indie games that have crossed the one million sold milestone, including Space Engineers, Kerbal Space Program, Day Z, and Rust.

The Stanley Parable is available for PC and Mac on the Steam store.
