    Away from this shithole
    Is this a 50 hours long video about a mountain?

    You're forgetting about the element of randomness! I'm sure there's some variety to the... mountain-watching experience.

    I swear I read Guild's comment and immediately thought of the same thing.

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    Looks more enticing than a jungle filled with generic action movie dialog. :gun:

    Remember how E3 2013 was Year of the Bow? This year was Year of the Mountain.

    I guess you could say my interest is peaked.

    Welp, at least this was good for something.

    I'm not sure that's the sort of thing you want to mount.

    Besides, the only heights I care for are Heathcliff strips.

    If there's no controls, there is no "gameplay". It's not a game, it's a video.

    Sure you can choose to "play" or not.

    Relevant


    As for the game... if it is getting things like this then it looks like it will probably pay for the creator's bar tab for a week or so. Makes it all good as far as I can see.

    LOL @ "hardcore relax 'em up". :rofl:


    I'm kinda sad that the OP video already ninja'd the Game of Thrones pun I had lined up. That would have been fun...

    Oh, wait...here's one:

    This'll be a rock solid experience. B-)

    On a more serious note: I can see people buying this. This is kind of like those DVD's with a fireplace. This is something you hook up to a static display somewhere and just let it play out. I'm sure there are already quite some aquarium simulators out there, so one featuring a mountain won't even be THAT unique.

    Not automatically. It could be that at the start, you could choose things like your height, location, size, volcano (yes/no) and initial vegetation (that will have their influence as your character progresses through time). While that may not sound like much, it still doesn't quite fit the term 'video'. I think. :unsure:
