Everything [Official Site, itch.io, Steam, GOG, Humble] is a hard game to describe, it could be called a life simulator, as you can explore so much. Just today they put out a Linux version!

I personally tested it out and it was an absolute joy. From the very first moment, to the moment I put it down to write some thoughts it was incredible. Especially fun when it says "Everything is loaded" at the start which made me chuckle. Simple things right?

At first, I was confused, hilariously confused. I went from being a spec of space dust, to a deer that couldn't walk, instead it does a twitchy roll like it's in the Lego movie. Seriously, I don't even...

What? It got even funnier when I realized there was a sprint button.

You go around listening to the thoughts of various animals, plants and well — Everything. As you progress, you slowly gain new abilities and learn more about the universe. I'm absolutely mesmerized by it, truly I am. Nothing recently has had my absolute full attention, it's actually quite a detailed game that hides it all with such beautiful and slightly humorous presentation.

For a while I was a Gazelle, then a Clam Shell and now I'm currently settling into life as a single piece of Pollen floating around.

So far, it's been a weirdly thought provoking game and the Linux version seems to run flawlessly. An absolutely fascinating experience, even more so when you go into the menu to realize it unlocks a bunch of facts on each thing you become. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Saw this and did not know what to make of it.
I STILL do not know what to bloody make of it.
Kudos to the devs for porting it to linux though.

It's nice to see more and more games for Linux

So now if they ask me if there are games on Linux I can say "Are you kidding? Everything's on Linux!"

Not for Linux on GOG and Humble, for some reason…

I helped test some initial Linux builds last week and found the time I spent with it to be some of the most personally resonant experiences I've ever had with a game. Everything has moved me in ways that few other games have.
