For those of you who are fan of 'games as art' I can thoroughly recommend 'Everything'.
This is a game which allows you to be everything. From a tree to a blad of grass to a rock. and move around in a world. Eventually you can be everything that is on a world like animals, fish, buildings, or even things as small as a human hair, a bacterium, or a helium atom or even dive into that helium atom and experience reality even smaller, until you dive into such a small thing that you are suddenly the universe and galaxies flying around in it, planets and stars etc. The game is narrated by Alan Watts, a philosopher who tried to bring eastern philosophy to the western world. You hear some of his sound bytes through audio thoughts, which you can collect throughout the game.

Anyway, it's really comforting to play, and sometimes after a long day of work I just want to be a blade of grass, or a forest of trees, and move around the globe :).

Here's one of the more in depth video reviews that I saw about it,

Should be available via steam and runs well on my not so fast linux machine :)

Below are some screenshots, they are mine, so if you have a higher end computer you should get better graphics out of it I think.

Looks interesting, but I wonder if the somersaulting animals might take away from its tranquility. ;)

the somersaulting was done to indicate that the game doesn't take itself too seriously (but really also because of practical reasons, making hundreds of animals walking animations would never be possible)

I'd suggest reducing the display size of the images, though. It's a bit big for the forum's proportions right now. Try using the rimg tag.

To be fair, it wouldn't be that hard to implement. Just have the image tag add a 'max-width' property of the suitable size, and problem solved.
