Double Fine explores Everything with the creator of Mountain

Artist David O'Reilly is moving on from the ambiant Mountain and exploring the nature of all things with publisher Double Fine in a PlayStation 4 exclusive called Everything.


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.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
