David OReilly's Mountain [$0.99] has proven to be absolute pornography for people who write about video games – from its gameplay or lack thereof, to the mysterious things that can happen, even we've gotten into it. After all, we did stream the supposed ending – or at least an ending, even if OReilly claims it's not the true ending. Well, I have good news: an update is out now for the PC version and is coming soon to mobile.

What this 1.1 update will include is a a new widescreen option, so you should be able to play in landscape mode. There will be many more new modes, along with a songbook menu so that you can see which modes you've unlocked by playing the piano. More items will pop up on the mountain as well. Save and load times will be improved, so expect the game to hopefully load faster. The thought system will be updated, bugs will be fixed, and other small stuff, which is important in this game about seemingly little things.

Mountain Blood Mode

And of course, once the update hits iOS, we'll all get to obsess about just what's hidden in the game. But we do know blood mode exists: playing mmmmmm,mnab on the PC version will unlock it. The iOS version's keyboard has A in the top left corner of the virtual piano keys, with Z in the bottom left. The update is currently in the hands of Apple.

      Except with wallpapers you can actually do other stuff while they sit in the back...

    Really tempted to get this and see what's all the fuss about. Fellow toucharcadians, yes/no?

      It's sort of the new Flappy Bird in that most normal people just look at it and shrug but that very small slice of the internet gets REAL MAD over it. I'm a bit disappointed by the comments here so far, usually they get far more crazy.

        Don't listen to Eli, he's still mad that my mountain was better than his.

    IMO this "game" would be cool as an android Live Wallpaper.

      And drain a perfectly good battery?

    Of course there's something fucked up about it. It's David O'Reilly. I don't think he can really be trusted to make something purely nice and peaceful. Though he might be trying now.

    This is like an idle game, isn't it?

  • DemoEvolved

    Eli, I can't believe you haven't done an article on how to get the "good" ending. Think of all the hours ppl are blowing only to get the apocalypse ending

  • Irvin

    If the nazies won the war instead of the allies, O'Reilly would be shot for making this atrocity.

    How the hell is one supposed to play this anyway...keep pressing random shit on the keyboard...nothing happens am I supposed to look at this thing for 50 hours+? I don't understand.

    • DemoEvolved

      Maybe if you had a playguide if would make more sense....

    Just stopping by to warn people that the "Blood Mode" code above seems to reset the game on iOS right now. I just lost a mountain covered with stuff, didn't get to see an ending after waiting patiently for hours :(( Oh, well, at least I got a rubber duckie this time around, didn't see that on my first mountain...

    on my pc i have over 5 hours of gameplay, its a good game, its relaxing and it gives you something to do when you dont want to do anything else, it allows you to clear your mind and you get to watch your mountain progress over time. no, this game may not have an actual point, but who said games have to? and its $1 dont act like you dont have $1 to spend if you have an iPhone, just saying.
