OverviewOverview

This is a game from the same developer as Everything that simulates a mountain. You influence how each of the rising land masses turns out by drawing different objects. The game then evolves before you, offer a gentle background to other activities, meditation or contemplation.

The game uses your drawn responses to the psychological questions to model a mountain, floating in space, surrounded by a small sphere of the atmosphere. You can then explore the structure and interact in other ways.

As you watch, the mountain slowly revolves as time passes quickly through day and night and the seasons change. Snow falls and then melts, flora and fauna spring up and wither away. There is even some occasional dialogue where you hear the "thoughts" of the huge mass.

After around fifty hours while the game has been running, the mountain meets its fate when it crashes into a passing giant star, ending the game, at which point the player can start the game over with a new mountain.
