THE BEGINNER’S GUIDE
The Beginner’s Guide is designer Davey Wreden’s follow-up to his critically acclaimed indie hit The Stanley Parable. In it, he takes the player on a tour of the portfolio of unknown game maker Coda, arguing that through his work we can learn about him as a person. One game sees the player on a stage, botching their lines before retreating behind a series of heavy gates. It’s a fascinating way to present what is essentially an intensely personal insight into Wreden himself, and while guided, it’s very much open to interpretation.
