Ratings and Reviews
Uummm, not so much
The polluted mountain is kinda depressing. My daughter likes to poke at the garbage. I just want to clean it up but I don’t think there is a way to manipulate the junk other than poking at it.
It grew on me
I’ve been running it under TvOS for several days and I can understand why some people are very negative about it. But if you leave it running, especially with a good sound system, it adds a minor, somewhat melancholy, but also interesting element to the day. It reminds me of Bob Shaw’s “slow glass”. My son thinks it’s just a Big Troll, and I’m familiar with David OReilly and maybe that’s how he thinks of it, too. But I’ll invoke the Author Fallacy and claim that it doesn’t matter. Mountain can be a small but interesting addition to your day, if you want it to be.
We need more art like this. If you’re looking for a game, this isn’t it. This is a little universe you can look in on time to time. Buy it even if you don’t want to. We need to support this developer. It’s only 99 cents. If you like this, try his other philosophical experiment, “Everything.”
