Double Fine publishes 'Her' game creator's mountain simulator, Mountain

Mountain — the mountain simulator game by the visual artist that created a minigame for the film Her — is now available for iOS, Linux, Mac and Windows PC, publisher Double Fine Productions announced via Twitter.

Mountain by David OReilly, a filmmaker who has also written and directed an episode of cartoon series Adventure Time, gives players control over just that — a mountain. The game opens by asking players "questions designed to be far more psychologically invasive than anything Facebook wants to know about you," OReilly said at the Horizon event during E3 earlier this year. Players will answer the questions with drawings, and these will be used to created each player's own procedurally-generated mountain.

The mountain remains immovable and there are no controls — players watch things grow and die as nature takes it own course. According to the iTunes App Store listing, there are 50 hours of gameplay and the game saves automatically.

Mountain is part of the indie studio's Double Fine Presents label, through which the company assists small indie games with the publishing process — you can buy it here. The endeavor launched in March with MagicalTimeBean's Escape Goat 2.
