New PS4 Game Everything Lets You Play As... Everything

"In Everything, every single thing is a playable character," writes artist David O'Reilly on the PlayStation Blog today. "If you can see it, you can be it." Well. Alright then. In this newly announced, insane-sounding PS4 game by O'Reilly — who also designed Mountain — the pitch is simple: You can be everything. Rather than bother with typical video game nonsense like "playable characters" or "levels", Everything will somehow let you inhabit just about anything.

"Everything lets you be anything you want," O'Reilly writes. "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)."

In other news, I'm starting to suspect that David O'Reilly is actually Peter Molydeux.

    This makes me think of the Japanese fairytale "The Stonecutter".

      By definition, I guess we could control the British crown...

    Looks pointless

      did you play the mountain? That "game" was completely pointless... But i got it as a part of a humble bundle so i cant complain

        Nah I didn't was it good?
        Also it is still early days so there might even be some "point" to the game but watching things roam around in a circle doesn't really sit with me lol.

          it wasnt good... And the guys who made the mountain made this. So i wont be surprised if this is exactly the same.

            AHAHAHAHA thank you for your wise words. Man for a second I thought you were defending this garbage.

    I literally just popped in here to make a Peter Molyneux joke, but yours is better.

    FYI, PeterMolyudeaux has picked up on Everything on his twitter account for those that care. Some of his ideas are insane, and as the link says should be made into a game. I liked most of those in the link, but the amnesia and busker ones stood out for me.
