The Stanley Parable’s Narrator added to Dota 2 as an announcer

Posted on May 15, 2014 AT 01:45pm

The Stanley Parable’s narrator is now a Dota 2 announcer, creator Davey Wreden told Polygon.

Voiced by Kevan Brighting, the dry British wit of The Stanley Parable’s narrator joins Bastion’s narrator (Logan Cunningham, also the voice of Transistor in Supergiant’s upcoming Transistor), Half-Life 2’s Dr. Kleiner, and Portal’s GLaDOS (among others).

According to Wreden, “the pack inserts the Narrator and his particular brand of sardonic meta-commentary into Dota 2, rendering the game not only understandable but even downright accessible to the common layperson.”

The Stanley Parable originally launched in 2011, but was rereleased in 2013 as a high-def remake. The game is currently available on Windows PC and Mac OS X for $7.49 (normally $14.99). The Narrator’s Dota 2 announcer pack, meanwhile, is $10, though Valve is offering a 10 percent discount for the first 48 hours of its sale.
