This time, to make sure we don't get lost, I've employed the help of The Stanley Parable Adventure Line™!

–The Narrator

The Stanley Parable Adventure Line™ is an entity in The Stanley Parable that guides Stanley throughout the office in the Confusion Ending. The Narrator employs The Line™ usage in order to "find the story", but It™ doesn't seem to know how to.


The Line™ is characterized by a solid yellow line. As the Line™ progresses, It™ starts to zig-zag throughout the office and cause havoc, knocking over chairs, desks, and boxes. The Line™ makes a reappearance on the last restart, when It™ comes crashing through the ceiling, zig-zags around for a bit, then leaves again. When you follow It™, you are accompanied by the song Following Stanley. It™ is always addressed with capital letters and a trademark symbol, even when referred to as simply It™.


The Line™ can be found in the Confusion Ending. For some time after the Confusion Ending, peeking in a window in the office will reveal the Line™ on the ground. It™ can be seen next to door 448 after taking the right door.

The Line™ was encountered twice during the gameplay, although the Confusion Ending Schedule stated that the Line™ will make Its™ third appearance should the Narrator go on with the schedule.

The Line™ also appears in the Stanley Parable Demonstration. In the "Final Decision" room, the Line™ can be found on the wall, low near the darkness. It is easy to miss.

Even though that room can’t be found during gameplay, The Line™ can also be found on the cover for The Stanley Parable’s physical IndieBox edition.

The Line™ makes a cameo in the "The Stanley Parable Responds to Your Letters and Emails" YouTube video, as It™ appears under the person holding the parchment on the monitor #236.

In The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe, The Line™ appears in the bucket variant of the Confusion Ending, at the intervention of Stanley's attachment to The Bucket rather than classic characters. The Line™ then leads both Stanley and the Bucket to the Bucket Destroyer, even playing the music from the first time you follow It™.

  • While Ultra Deluxe is considered a sequel, The Line™ will appear with the correct sequel number at the start of the fourth sub-ending of the normal Confusion Ending, though is back to its regular appearance on the fifth sub-ending.
  • On the title screen for The Stanley Parable 12, fans have speculated from the files[^] that the yellow figure next to an anime-esque Stanley is a human version of the Line™.
