The Art Ending is a secret ending in The Stanley Parable which can be obtained by playing the Baby Game for 4 hours without letting either the baby or the puppy die even once.
Obtaining the Ending
Exit your office and head to the right door at the two doors room. Carry on straight to the warehouse, get in the cargo lift and jump to the catwalk in the middle of the ride, then head to the colored doors and enter the blue door three times. After being taken back to the two doors room, go through any door and rate your experience. After you're taken back, repeat what you have done. You'll be taken to the Baby Game afterwards. When you face the Baby Game, the Narrator tells you to keep pressing the button for four hours. After some time, you need to do the same for another blue button for a dog. Once the task is completed, the screen turns into multiple messages over a white background and the ending is completed.
As the Narrator instructs you, you'll have to play the game for 4 hours, which is probably the biggest challenge the game presents. Your task here is very simple; push the red button to keep the baby from the fire. Every fifteen minutes, the Narrator will speak random things, such as "Just popping in to say hi!" or "Keep clicking that button. For freedom! For science! For love!".
After two hours of playing, the Narrator will add a Puppy game, where a puppy is being lowered into a pool of piranhas, forcing you to deal with two buttons at the same time. Should you fail the former, the Narrator will take you straight away to the Games Ending, so be careful.
After three hours of playing, the Narrator will discuss the possibility if Stanley keeps pressing the buttons. The Narrator imagined that people will come from all over the world to see "the man who never stops pushing buttons", and that video games are actually art (the Narrator is talking about his video game).
At the final hours of the game, the room will shake violently, and a being known as the Divine Art will shine the room with a bright light. The Divine Art reveals its true self before Stanley and grants him the freedom Stanley longed for.
- Letting the puppy get dipped into the lake of piranha causes the baby's reset button to malfunction, effectively forcing a loss.
- It's possible to play both games without having to press any of the buttons; get the developer console, type in the following:
