Everything is a new game by David O’Reilly, the man who brought us Mountain. If in Mountain we explored what it is like to be a mountain, in Everything we’ll get to be… well, everything.
The title is billed as a “consciousness simulator and open universe exploration game”. The concept is simple – if you can see it, you can be it. From microscopic life forms to entire galaxies and everything in between, you can be everything you want. That’s a pretty tall order.
“The game lets you see the entire universe from the point of view of the thousands of things in it,” O’Reilly wrote on the PlayStation blog, “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).”
Currently, Everything is a PlayStation 4 exclusive set to release as soon as it is finished.
