Game release: “Everything” (PC)

Not writing about anything for the past few months until recently makes one realize that one has missed out on so many interesting gaming experiences, like filmmaker/artist David OReilly‘s life simulation aptly titled Everything.

Double Fine is known for their quirky but sophisticated adventure games, so their involvement with this title opens up all kinds of interesting possibilities to broaden one’s horizon. Don’t let the first minutes of the trailer fool you with the weird movements of animals that can be easily seen as a bug in other games. It looks just strange to be the Universe and see everything unfold from the outside.

Maybe that’s not right, as one can experience every single organism, watch it evolve and interact with the environment. The nature simulator even goes so far as to show whole planets and galaxies one can change or simply watch. Yes, it all sounds rather non-interactive, especially with the narration of British philosopher Alan Watts, giving it a documentary feel, but it also looks captivating, maybe not in the same way as Flower in the Journey: Collector’s Edition, but still beautiful. How much game there actually is and if it can sustain longer playtime remains to be seen, though.

The game was already released on PS4 in March, but it then received a PC version one month later. So if you’re up for some experimental and contemplative gaming with a soothing soundtrack, this might be for you.

Being an avid gamer, cinemaniac, and bookworm in addition to other things the internet and new media present, I'm also very much into DIY music, rock and pop in particular. Writing short or longer pieces about anything that interests me has always made me happy. As both an editor for German website "Adventure-Treff" and UK website "Future Sack", I like to write reviews and news about recent developments in the movies, games and book industry.
