Recently the Day of the Devs Bundle hit and it contains a game I wanted to add to my collection in Full Throttle Remastered. I loved the original LucasArts classic and I've been really happy with how Double Fine has remade a bunch of the old LucasArts games for the modern era. Originally I was going to pick this up SIMPLY because I wanted Full Throttle Remastered but after watching the trailer for Everything I am thinking i'll be playing that too. Actually, I watched the trailer for Everything had no idea what it was and watched the gameplay video linked above and was ABSOLUTELY floored by it. I've never been drawn to think about life in the way I did after watching a Gameplay trailer and i've included it above so you can watch it in it's entirety. My recommendation is that you set aside some time to watch it and consider what it's saying. It's actually not really a gameplay tailer, well I guess it is but it's more about life and how things are connected and I found it absolutely beautiful. In fact if I had to point a discussion that talked about "games as art" i'd point to this gameplay trailer. If the game is even a fraction of what's in that gameplay trailer then the game looks great.

For $9 you can pick up the entire Day of the Devs Bundle featuring: Tumble Seed, Grim Fandango Remastered, Loot Rascals, ABZU, Flint Hook, Day of the Tentacle Remastered, Full Throttle Remastered, Everything and access to the Day of the Devs Double Fine VIP ticket.

I picked up the full bundle. Payed a little extra, because I think it is worth it.

Not to be trite, but Everything is, indeed, awesome. There are situations in the trailer that I haven't experienced yet during my playing, but the sprinkling of recordings from philosopher Alan Watts alone, acting as a sort of spiritual guide, tying Everything together, give the game a depth of intrigue that might otherwise have left me to bury it deep in a wishlist. The games creators indicate that these in-game recordings are optional, and they are, but I'm sure that most that have played would say that they are essential to Everything's presentation of everything. If you deep dive with an open mind, you may find yourself questioning things that you have yet considered, or dared not. It's a rabbit hole well worth falling into.

I don't know about the rolling animals.

The rolling animals really didn't make sense to me but then I let the gameplay trailer work it's magic and I found it really endearing. Want to talk more about it after I play it.

When you do get around to playing, I highly recommend using headphones.
