Video Game Everything

David OReilly is an artist, film-maker and game designer whose distinctive style has made him one of the most respected and influential creative voices of the contemporary scene. Creator of the groundbreaking animated films Please Say Something and The External World, his work has won numerous awards and been the subject of several retrospectives internationally. He served as writer for the television shows Adventure Time & South Park, and created the fictional video games in Spike Jonze’s Academy Award winning film Her. In 2014 he released his first game Mountain and in 2017 released his second game, Everything, which is a metaphysical tour de force that suggests entirely new directions for games as an artform.
