The Stanley Parable designer releases free game The Temple of No

A browser-based text adventure about a frog, maybe.

The Stanley Parable designer William Pugh released the second free game at his new studio Crows Crows Crows. The first, if you don't remember, was the gloriously titled first-person adventure Dr. Langeskov, The Tiger, and The Terribly Cursed Emerald: A Whirlwind Heist. This latest title, The Temple of No, is a Twine-based text adventure about a frog.

Sorry, but The Temple of No isn't Frog Fractions 2.

Well, it could be about a frog anyway. This text adventure asks players to choose between three protagonists: a man, a woman, and a frog. It's difficult to say much about without going into spoilers, suffice to say it's a globetrotting expedition about treasure hunting. As one would expect from the designer of The Stanley Parable and Dr. Langeskov, The Tiger, and The Terribly Cursed Emerald: A Whirlwind Heist, there's plenty of fourth wall-breaking humour in this experimental romp.

You can give The Temple of No a go on Crows Crows Crows' itch.io page.

Crows Crows Crows is still developing a big secret game. "We've been toiling away on it for almost two years now, so very soon we're going to be telling you more about it!" Pugh said in an email to Eurogamer.

Pugh also offered an update on the VR game he's making with Rick & Morty creator Justin Roiland. That's still happening and it's officially part of the Crows Crows Crows label (as opposed to a side project), and Pugh said the studio will "release that to the public SOON (in Valve time)."
