They are not even trying. That's what bugs me the most about this conceptually interesting screensaver. If there were attention to detail. If it were beautiful to look at. Instead, we get a bland-looking mountain, with clouds that pass right through the rock and the occasional piano track that wasn't even played on a real piano. I realize this is old software but it's not like you couldn't precompute wind patterns at the mountain top or like there was so much interactivity to program that there was no time to put a bit of smarts into the physics. You basically had one job. Also, how hard can it be to get someone to letting you use their piano for like ten minutes?

Definitely the best mountain simulation program there is on Steam, nothing like it, absolutely worth your purchase with a low, low price of $0.99.
