I've played it, it really is cool. Speaks to me as a Gam Maker (TM).

Apparently turning the narration off results in a different experience.

yeah i watched a lets play where one of the commentators had already played it, and the other was playing it for the first time with the commentary off, and again with it on

v interesting seeing how their perspective changed through both playthroughs

also i really like how tonally different it is from the stanley parable.

itd have been so easy to make the beginner's guide basically the same game as it is, but with things like the commentary reacting to your actions, and ive seen a fair bit of disappointment that it wasn't that? but i think (im gonna white out this text for anyone who hasnt played it yet and wants to) it really sells the believability that these aren't daveys games, they're something that he has some respect for, and the one or two jokes there are take place within the games themselves and feel more like something you'd put in for your own amusement rather than for an audience.

someone recommended it to me and i almost bought it one day but i had made a bunch of big purchases that week and didnt really think it was the best financial decision,,, it seemed cool. from my understanding it might almost be like a collection of playthings?

yeha its basically a bunch of weird experimental first-person games that were (according to the in-game story) made by a friend of the narrator, and the narrator kinda guides u through them and gives his thoughts and interpretations of their meaning and stuff...... of course there is a SHocking Twist near the end which is sort of the "point" of the game but like even aside from that, the games are really cute & have a lot of interesting & weird ideas and i found it really compelling even before the twist

its like ~90 minutes long (depends how much u explore maybe? the longplay i watched was about 1h20m) so its not much of a time investment

In all honesty after playing it I was unsure if my money was worth that, but, thinking about it more, I think it was probably worth it
