Heartwarming / The Stanley Parable

Go To

  • The Art Ending.
    Divine Being: Now, live your normal life, and wait for me in the life after this one. I love you.
  • The Freedom Ending is probably one of the nicest endings you could get in a video game. Seeing Stanley step into the wilderness, having broken free from his old life and ready to start anew, will put a smile on anyone's face. The song that plays during the ending is absolutely beautiful, as well.
    Narrator: Stanley felt the cool breeze upon his skin, the feeling of liberation, the immense possibility of the new path before him. This was exactly the way, right now, that things were meant to happen. And Stanley was happy.

  • The fans made a mod titled "Escape Pod Override". In the normal Escape Pod ending, the game restarts yet again without Stanley having accomplished anything. However, this time the Narrator accompanies him to the Escape Pod and they finally break free of the game. They even got Kevan Brighting to add some lines of his own to this fan made ending!

How well does it match the trope?
