    Everything is an extraordinary journey. It’s Salvador Dali meets Neil deGrasse Tyson meets Eastern Mysticism. It’s art and spirituality brought to life in a medium that transcends the limitations of books and paints. This isn’t the game you want if you’re looking for casual entertainment with which to unwind at the end of a long day. Yet, even though Everything challenges your understanding of self and the universe, it never sacrifices the simple joy of fun.

    Funny, philosophical, and deeply, deeply weird, there’s nothing else quite like Everything on PC.

    Everything is not for everyone. It’s one part art-house film, one part nature documentary, one part guided meditation. While easily approached and casually consumed, it’s a game that nevertheless wants more from you, a game that asks you to quietly reflect on yourself and your place in the Cosmos. Engage and you may discover one of your favorite games of 2017. If not? Well, it’s at least unique, and uniquely ambitious.

    Everything is an impressive, extensive and all-embracing ... interactive application at the first place. The game occupies the second place. Let yourself drift on the waves of science and philosophy and try to create an unparalleled world. However, it is not entirely guaranteed that you will enjoy it.

  1. For me, at times, Everything feels like the game Spore should have been. When I watched the early presentations of that game’s silly creature creator and its invocation of Powers of Ten, I wasn’t imagining a fiddly, shallow strategy game, but an experience that hoped to approximate the awe I sometimes feel when stargazing or can tap into by listening to Carl Sagan talk. By throwing out most of Spore’s traditional mechanics in favour of a cross between Katamari Damacy and Nested, Everything gets closer to sublimity. And though I don’t think it gets all the way there – not for me, not right now – the silliness is constant and delightful.

Never I've played a game that is so alluring, and manage to give you everything and nothing at the same time. An ultimate indie-expirience. Gotta take those pretention pills more often.
    But seriously it's a great game. Quotes from Alan Watts feel genuine, not out of place. And while it has some great themes it doesn't lost fun, gameplay mechanic is simple, but the variations are countless, so it never gets repetetive.

After Mountain (David O'Reilly's first game), which I really did not enjoy at all, I was not expecting much from his second creation. But I was super surprised at how much more I enjoyed EVERYTHING. My score is probably a bit inflated given my low initial expectations, but playing through EVERYTHING was a really nice, pleasant experience that took me to a place that not many video games have been able to. It also clearly had a lot more work put into it than Mountain did. It's nothing super revolutionary or incredible genius, but it's an interesting concept that was executed extremely well. Expand

The only "aim" is perhaps to collect all the stuff in the world, but the process is very boring. The only thing to do in this game is to move around or ascend/descend then search for stuff you haven't met before, rinse and repeat. I like philosophy but I don't see any connection between the game and the quotes. I uninstalled after an hour. Expand

I'm not at all against the idea of an intoxicating brew of both philosophy and science. i believe I have an open mind in regards to 'interactive experiences'.

    But after a few hours of rolling around, forming and unforming a group of similar creatures, growing from a radiation wave to a galaxy amidst the glory of spectacularly blurry and unimpressive aesthetics, I found myself feeling surprisingly empty and bored - very, very quickly.

    This is a tech demo masquerading as a game. And not a very interesting/fun one.

    There is nothing like this game. It is so amazing that it is so sad that the controls and camera make this unplayable.
