At least now when I die, I'll be known as that chick who wasted her life on a virtual mountain.

I have no idea what's the point of this game but it's quite soothing. In fact there are no controls and there is feature to play your own music theme because some of keys are making piano sounds.

Mountain is to gaming what a fish in an aquarium is to pets: you can't pet or cuddle it but sometimes just watching it exist is reward enough.

I picked this one up in a bundle or sale, and I have no regrets.
