‘Her’ Game Designer Creates Relaxing Mountain Simulator
David O’Reilly will release a new kind of game that has players sculpt a peaceful mountain.
Video games have become more and more realistic with highly detailed first person shooters, war simulators, roleplaying games and heart-stopping horror thrillers. However, as these loud and action packed games flood the market, a new genre has appeared: Relaxing games, designed to put the player at ease. David O’Reilly, best known for his fictional game featured in the Oscar-nominated film ‘Her,’ has created his own ‘Art Horror’ game called ‘Mountain.’
This ‘relax ’em up’ game, on which O’Reilly worked with independent game developer Damien Di Fede, is designed to help players slowly relax, from either a long stressful day at work, school or just life. Announced at the Horizon conference at E3, the mechanics are pretty simple, and should be easy for gamers of all walks of life to use.
