Synopsis (tldr)
Discover what it's like to be the universe in this beautiful interactive nature simulation.

Synopsis
Everything is an interactive experience where everything you see is a thing you can be, from animals to planets to galaxies and beyond. Travel between outer and inner space, and explore a vast, interconnected universe of things without enforced goals, scores, or tasks to complete. Everything is a procedural, AI-driven simulation of the systems of nature, seen from the points of view of everything in the universe. 

Learn to change what you are to create worlds within worlds within worlds, or let go any time to allow Everything to take over and produce a never ending documentary about the world you live in.

Narrated by the inspiring philosophy of Alan Watts, and featuring a rich score from composer Ben Lukas Boysen, Everything will give you a new perspective on life.

Development history

Everything has been in development for 2.5 years with a core team of 2 people, David OReilly and Damien Di Fede. They created Mountain, which was released in 2014 on Steam & iOS.

Mountain discovered a new audience of non gamers and gamers alike. It has found itself used as a relaxation tool, musical instrument, meditation aid, sound generator and installation. Everything is a much broader expansion of the ideas & approach behind Mountain.

Everything is independently funded, and has received support from the Wellcome Trust - a UK based biomedical research charity, and Sony's Pub Fund initiative. 

David OReilly (b. Ireland, 1985) is a filmmaker and artist based in Los Angeles. Creator of the influential short films ‘Please Say Something’ and ‘The External World’, his animation work has won numerous awards and been the subject of several international retrospectives. He has lectured at Pixar, Harvard, Yale, USC, CalArts and at many other conferences and festivals around the world. He has written for Adventure Time & South Park, and created fictional video games in Spike Jonze’s Academy Award winning film 'Her'.
