Everything is a new game that makes all objects playableBy Robin-Leigh Chetty 9 March 2016 | Categories: news
If you have not heard of game creator David O'Reilly, you may have already seen some of his work and not realised it. The Irishman was responsible for the games seen in Spike Jonze's film Her, and now he's readying his first fully-fledged mainstream game - Everything.
While the game's title as well as its announcement trailer are a little vague on details, O'Reilly has provided some insight. Everything will allow users to essentially turn all objects within the game into playable characters. To what end this will lend itself to gameplay is unclear, but the prospect of becoming a pebble, rabbit or even a star constellation (as seen in the announcement trailer) is certainly an intriguing one.
"In Everything, every single thing is a playable character; if you can see it, you can be it. The game lets you see the entire universe from the point of view of the thousands of things in it. In other words, there is no distinction between you and the world, or between a level and a character. All these things experience and interact with the world differently," notes O'Reilly.
Adding, "Everything lets you be anything you want. If you ever wanted to see what it’s like to be a horse, or a paperclip, or the sun, this is for you. Your main power in the game is Being (there are more but I won’t ruin the surprise)."
Everything is slated for release on PS4 later this year, but neither PlayStation nor O'Reilly has provided a specific release date.
