It is not a game, more of a little interactive screensaver. You can just rotate the mountain with your mouse, and zoom wuth the mousewheel, which was a surprise and looked beautiful. Still, I kinda like this thing.Buy it and enjoy the relax, the sound and the light effects.

I just wish that clouds would stop crossing through the mountain.

By far the best bang for my buck - yes, quite seriously, for that one dollar spent.

Things to do include:
- Playing Heart & Soul on the keyboard (annoy your friends!)
- Stress reducer (relax your body and soul as you stare into the abyss!)
- Mountain RP (haven't you always wanted to be a mountain?)

Fascinating and thought-provoking, this game made me question my own mortality in addition to the futility of the world...

So why wait around? Let Mountain draw you in. Discover who you truly are. Accept it into your life and be enlightened, then gift it to your friends and family, and let them know how this game can really change your life.

This is definitely not a game, I'll say that. But what it is is impossible to look away from. I found myself opening my browser only half way so I could see my mountain as I watched a video, then ended up pausing the video to continue watching the mountain. But that's only to be expected from David OReilly.

Mountain... There are no words to describe this game.
Mountain is not just a game, it is a masterpiece.
Actually Mountain is not only a masterpiece, Mountain is also a way of life.
Experiencing the life of a Mountain from night to dawn. Seeing those celestial relics coming from the sky falling over the Mountain... Beautiful... Tears come to my eyes everytime I think about it.
With all of this, I rate Mountain with 9/11.

My experience with this game:
1. Open up mountain
2. Stare at mountain for a solid 2 hours
3. Realise the mountain has a better life than me
4. Becomes a mountain

Mountain is love, Mountain is life.

Eh... it's alright, I like David O'Reilly pretty creative guy. If you're actually interested in the game itself, it's an interactive screen-saver. I had to spend some time investigating the game in its fullest potential, time well spent.

On a more serious note, this game is actually very relaxing. The background noise is very pleasant and the visuals are very nice to look at. I don't think you can go wrong for just £1.
