Artist David O'Reilly has been known for his artwork and his short films, but he also left an impression on the gaming world with the ambiant Mountain, which was released on PC and mobile devices. O'Reilly's work has not gone unnoticed and the folks at Double Fine have now tapped him for a new game called Everything.
"In Everything, every single thing is a playable character; if you can see it, you can be it," O'Reilly explains on PlayStation.Blog. "The game lets you see the entire universe from the point of view of the thousands of things in it. In other words, there is no distinction between you and the world, or between a level and a character. All these things experience and interact with the world differently. Everything lets you be anything you want. If you ever wanted to see what it’s like to be a horse, or a paperclip, or the sun, this is for you. Your main power in the game is Being (there are more but I won’t ruin the surprise)."
The focus of Everything looks to be exploring and interacting with nature, as well as the relationships between all living (and even inanimate) things, with O'Reilly calling it a further exploration on the themes he touched on in Mountain. No release information has been provided, but Everything will be a PlayStation 4 exclusive. For more, check out the trailer below.
