Everything

Director: David OReilly

OReilly creates an interactive world for players to explore many possible existences; a game where you can be everything! and have only one purpose; ‘being’. Whether you choose to become a microbe inside a plant, an island, a camel in the desert or a mighty galaxy, Everything aims to transform game-playing into a practice of digital psychodrama. Renowned for interpreting Eastern philosophy for Western audiences; the late great British philosopher Alan Watts’s recordings narrate the game. Alan Watts’s familiar voice combined with 4-hour soundscape composed by Ben Lukas Boysen & Sebastian Plano from the inspirational Erased Tapes Record Label, enhances the atmosphere of the game adding more weight to the new hype of ambient gaming and its connection to ambient soundscapes. Role playing becomes a powerful tool for gaining insight on the interconnectedness of nature; tackling unprecedented existential questions where gaming shifts into guided meditation. Utilizing video games as an art medium OReilly continually probes gray areas in between ‘what it means to play’ while agitating the core of popular video gaming functions based on competition, success and reward.
