Added DiffLines:

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: There's quite a few for the Narrator in particular, as he behaves rather differently depending on Stanley's actions. Sometimes (as in the Confusion and Zendom endings), he seems to genuinely be on Stanley's side, while in others (like the Phone and Explosion endings) he acts as an antagonist, and in still others (like the Freedom or Insane endings), he has no direct interactions with Stanley at all and simply lives up to his namesake as the storyteller. It's rather telling that the narrator is at his most antagonistic when Stanley is either deliberately ignoring his directions (Phone ending) or trying to hijack the story (Explosion ending), while obeying the narrator generally results in favourable treatment. Is he an [[JerkassGods Omnipotent Jerk]] who delights in manipulating Stanley? A control-freak who cannot stand dissent? An creator who is trying to show off something he is excited about creating only to (potentially) be thwarted by an uncooperative partner who seems to be causing havoc ForTheLulz? Such interpretation is largely left up to the player.

* PeripheryDemographic: Creator/TotalBiscuit normally has a mass disdain for "WalkingSimulator" games. That said, he dubbed this one of the best games of its year.

** You can get stuck in the ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' room, just like the ''Portal'' game. Unlike ''Portal'', though, it doesn't give you a way out. It does, however, chastise you for doing so, making it also (a rare case of) UnwinnableByDesign.

Added DiffLines:

* MoralEventHorizon: The Narrator definitely crosses it in the [[spoiler:pawn ending, where he railroads Stanley into a nightmarishly depressing, psychologically abusive power trip. It ''starts'' with him tempting Stanley with the chance to see his loving wife, only to tell him that he ''has'' no wife, and that ''nobody loves him'', and then it just keeps getting worse from there.]]

* ColbertBump: To say that people learned about Kevin [=MacLeod=] because of the inclusion of his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49AiqH-DuR0 Who Likes to Party]] is an understatement.

** During the "Real Person" ending, you can jump out of the moving platform before the door closes, at which point there's no way to continue the story - one of the few rare cases of when TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything does not apply. You do get a chance to closely examine the ground level of the storage room though, since the fall doesn't kill you this time.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45wz_ZjpgdU The Countdown music]] is pretty awesome too; really gets your blood pumping, for whatever it's worth- which, given the fact that you truly are doomed, not much.
