Double Fine Presents Mountain 01 Jul, 2014 / 8 comments

The latest indie title to be published by Double Fine through their Double Fine Presents program has been revealed. It is David OReilly’s Mountain. Double Fine describes it as "beautiful, relaxing, and most definitely unlike anything you’ve played before. It is a completely procedural terrarium of sorts that provides an ambient, minimalist, zen-like experience full of secrets and mysteries. It’s something that is begging to live in a small window of your desktop at all times and be taken in passively over time."

It is available now for iOS and PC, Mac, and Linux for only $1. You totally can't pass it up for that price.

    We actually should publish that, because it's a hell of a lot better than I could have done

    It's also worth it to zoom out as far as possible by scrolling with the mouse.

    Sorry for all these posts, but this has to be my goty 2014.

    Oh, and pressing one key as fast as possible will make the mountain spin faster, and increase the flow of time.

    This is rather calming, keeping in mind that it's mostly an elaborate screensaver. Nice to keep around in a small window while doing some work though.

    This is a very weird thing. Good job pricing this at 1 dollar, because I'd imagine there would be quite a bit of backlash if they asked more. I'm actually rather intrigued to see where this is going. Small discovery: you can make music with the letter keys.
