Artistically this game is wonderful. At first it may seem a bit confusing cause really there is no aim, you are free to do whatever. Though that 'whatever' is limited. It's a game you'll open up and just enjoy the beauty of its visuals and corresponding audio. Sometimes the mountain will say something witty or interesting and random objects may appear on the mountain so it keeps you a bit more into it. For it's price it's worth if you're into artistic games, or serene/ relaxing games.

1dollar for a dynamic desktop. People said: Crazy seller! Profiteer!
1dollar for a video game called Mountain. People said: I am a philosopher now~~~~~

1美元买个动态壁纸,人们说这是商业欺诈。1美元买游戏《山》。人们说这是哲学 。

Price/Worth:
I got it among other games in a Humble bundle so the game was maybe $.25 or something along those lines. I played it for about 10-15 mins before I ran out of things to do. Maybe I just haven't figured out all the Mountain's secrets..
Worth.

Notes:
I'm all for puzzle games but this one is so minimalistic that I don't even know where to begin. The guides written by other players didn't have a lot of content. And I wonder if it's because there really just isn't a lot here, or very few have scratched past the surface.

Summary
Average rating. Would buy to support artisitic games in general especially on sale but would probably never play beyond these 10ish mins.

This is pretty much on the level of a live screensaver or desktop toy/gadget. Might interest you, but more than likely just a waste. Would not recommend unless you like watching a virtual fireplace or similar.

Make sure your mountain does not get attacked by the mysterious forces.
Otherwise it's all good.

It's literally just a relaxing, mountain simulator. You watch a mountain that collects items that were floating in space that wonder apon your mountain. You can also control certain things that happen on/to your mountain, such as weather. I don't recommend it if you don't just want to watch a mountain. Though I like it because of how relaxing and casual it is, but its up to you.
