Mountain Game

Viral urban legends, David O'Reilly's Mountain Game, the moon's two faces and more in our weekly look at the web

David O’Reilly, the animator known for his deconstructed, artistic use of 3D software (as seen in the video game sequences for the Spike Jonze film, “Her”), released an app this week for iOS, Mac and PC called “Mountain Game.” An antithesis to attention-draining mobile apps in general, “Mountain” is a zen experience in which you raise your own unique, living mountain (that also floats). How it evolves day by day is a surprise that’s not necessarily meant to be understood.
