Arvostelut

“In a way, its lack of progression – the absence of skill trees, difficulty levels and save points – works in its favour; you won’t dive back in to mop up the last few achievements, or to climb leaderboards, but simply because you want to play Proteus. Because you want to open your eyes and be up to your waist in seawater, to walk to shore and wander through fields that sing. And that’s an itch only Proteus can scratch.”
8/10 – Edge

“I come away from it feeling elated. And that makes Proteus feel very special to me. It’s such a pleasure knowing it will be the same for so many others.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Its randomness and secrets make it worth playing through a few times, and beyond that, it's easy to imagine wanting to return to it just for respite from a stressful day or a noisy city.”
8/10 – The Guardian

“Proteus is beautiful, a beautiful thing. […]If it must be catgorised, Proteus perhaps is best filed alongside last year's similarly oblique but fascinating experimental games – Dear Esther and Journey.”
5/5 – Eurogamer

Tietoja pelistä

Proteus is a game about exploration and immersion in a dream-like island world where the soundtrack to your play is created by your surroundings. Played in first-person, the primary means of interaction is simply your presence in the world and how you observe it. The procedurally generated islands are home to creatures natural and imagined, tranquil valleys and ruins with magical properties.

Key Features:

  • Meditative play: the responsive world and lack of any text or hints distils an essence of curious, investigative play, and rewards patience and immersion.
  • Dynamic soundtrack composed by award-winning musician David Kanaga follows the mood of the world and will appeal to fans of Boards of Canada, Brian Eno.
  • A distinctive 2D-but-3D graphical style with wild shifting palettes that sits somewhere between 8-bit videogames and early 20th century modernist painting.
  • Islands are uniquely generated every time, and although it's theoretically possible to see everything in one playthrough, no-one ever does.
  • Built-in "postcard" function encodes world data into each screenshot, allowing islands and discoveries to be saved and shared.

I got this for free. Pretty game, but I don't see how this would be worth more than a dollar.

Want to see something beautiful? You could do that for cheaper, or even free by stepping outside the house and going somewhere to see something. Better yet, bring somebody with you and you'll enjoy yourself even more.

Now i do not usally write reviews but i felt that i had to for this game.
Im going to describe my first 20 mins in this game
i open up the game im stranded in the sea with the shore of an island in the distance i swim to shore find some chickens
listen to them for quite awhile move forward a bit and they run into the forest i chase after then my eye gets caught on a home just in the middle of nowhere i go to explore i find nothing but my character crouches down likes he is looking at somthing....or kneeling, i continue on all of a sudden it turns into evening then night eventually i come over a hill i see a white object in the tree it stares i move closer it flys away revealing itself as an owl as i follow its flight i see a gigantic tree in the distance i walk towards it im standing under it just listening to the tree creak its relaxing eventually i decide to leave i turn i see a mountain i walk towards it...thats right walk not run walk i climb it and find a circle of figures i go towards them i enter their circle all of a sudden the stars are going in and out and some are falling....shooting down to earth i eventually move on..... i come to another forest this one is diffrent there are fragments floating around i enter them and suddenly im watching the sun and moon come and go seasons change in the blink of an eye...i decide to quit...for now and i close my virtual eyes.....thus ended my first 20 mins with this game...no its not a game its a experience.

this game is beautiful! it's not for people who actually want to play a game, but rather for people seeking a unique experience. it's how i imagine people experience synesthesia. the music is lovely and even though it's rather slow at first it gets wonderful when night falls. it only takes like 30-60 min to play and it's so worth it. i fell in love with this game.

Do not come here expectng a game. Do not come here expecting a story. Come here for a calm, immersive, beautiful world. You literally just walk. And look. And listen. And Everything comes to life around you. You don't have to be one of those hippy-dippy "peace love and happiness" ♥♥♥♥♥ to understand. Because there's nothing to understand. This is a game about relaxing. And walking. And wondering.

I'll be honest I don't get it. I can't find anything interesting to this game. The music changes based on your surrounding and. . .

that's it.

Buy it if you want, but I don't recommend it.

Are Games Art?

The definition of art is that Art is the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance.

I would say that not all games are art, but rather the games that push the boundaries, have a narrative like no other, send a message about an issue, or have a unique style; those are the games that are art

Proteus is a very simplistic game on the mechanics side, but a very complicated game on the emotional side. I found my emotions changed as I walked through seasons, and through the fields.

I believe that Proteus has a strong emotinal effect, and that by definition it is a game and art.

Is Proteus worth $10.99?

In order to answer this question I must ask you a question. Can you put a price tag on art? Art is a form of expression. While the game is a "walking simulator," I believe it is much more than that. I would recommend you buy Proteus, but look at it as an experience, not a game.

I figured I would play this for five minutes and then uninstall it. I still felt this way after playing for a few minutes, finding the procedurally generated landscape and environmentally-based music moderately pleasing but ultimately disinteresting.

Then I read that there is more to the game, and indeed you can "win" the game, and was a little more intrigued. By about ten minutes later, I was staring with rapt attention and more than once had chills from the intensity of the experience. Against all odds.

Thus I think everyone should experience this. If it is still not doing anything for you after the first season change, then you are likely free to go, but I challenge anyone to make it to winter without being struck by the utterly bleak and frankly unsettling transformation the game presents to your already-beloved little stupid pixel island.

immerse youself in a world of color and of seasons, take a break from all those competitive games, all those griding games, this is a game where you wander around chasing a rabbit or seeing whats on the top of a mountain, a game with some curiosity and mystery to it because there is actually a sort of way to 'beat' this game and some hidden stuff but honestly you don't even have to be aware of that stuff to enjoy it i dont think i got what you were supposed to do for a while but thats the beauty of it you dont know, your just walking around and its like oh hey maybe if i do this something will happen its a very different experience from most video games its more of a thing to hop into and expereince every now and then more than anything

You really need to play the game with the lowest possible form of any real expectations in order for you to really feel immersed, at all.


Trust me when I say this you do NOT need to go through an entire playthrough to get the jist of the game and it is very dissapointing to say that. Seriously- play it for about 10 minutes and there- that's basically the entire game, you don't need to play anymore of it as it won't give you much more than what it offered from the very start.

The world itself is not as 'interactive' as the game claims its primary aspect was made to be. For the most part you'll be walking around mindlessly, wheather changes depending on the time of day,and location which MIGHT trigger a somewhat interesting world 'event' .There are also very minor aspects of the game such as small animals and whatnot that you can approach which will intiate a reaction and a unique sound but this quickly becomes repetitive once you notice it's very petty as it makes no real difference within the meat of gameplay. The only one that does anything to your playthrough is a circle of lights that (from what I've learned) makes the world change from night to day or even its seasons without having to naturally wait for it to happen. But that on it's own right it is not that impressive enough for me to feel that this game shoud cost this much.


The music is interesting at most but I also can't say it's memorable or something people would actually listen to outside of playing it, it's a constant loop that grows mind numbing as you notice it's just the same several seconds of sound that never stops until something in the world causes it to change. I'm not sure how could they mess up one of the only elements that would have made this game redeemable - but- they did for me.



While It is decently ambient and soothing but i can't possibly recommend this at the full price of 10 f*cking dollars. Calling this a game is also a bit TOO generous, it's more like a pretentious pixelated walking simulator that is musically inclined.
Unless you're considering of buying this in a sale that makes it worth less than half of it's full price or you REALLY love this sort of thing- skip it and never look back
- there are far better games that you can play than this which is barren of any real content.

Proteus is not a game, it's one of the (sry for derogatory term) "walking simulator" games.
There are very few interactive parts in this experience and absolutely zero so called "game play".
Yet I like it. As a person that is very stressed atm I can tell you - this is very calming and positive experience, almost therapeutic and very relaxing.
Proteus has a very simple graphics, simple but nicely arranged music and sounds and it's all well put together. There is no narration, story whatsoever that will upset you or put you in any non neutral mood.
Its like listening to the relaxaton tape but with added visuals.
Don't expect anything game like, just try to relax and travel the Proteus island.

It's dead simple. It's arguably not a game. But what it is, is genuinely relaxing, charming, and pretty. Play this and feel your tension melt. This is like Homestar Runner's takeabreak.exe expanded to a full hour or so of content. Plus little froggies!

Are games art?

That's a pretty loaded question. It's hard to call Proteus a game, and it's also hard to call a game "art".

Typically, games consist of objectives, things to accomplish. Proteus does not. Proteus is a procedurally generated experience, the music and visual style changing rapidly throughout.

Is Proteus a game? That's up to you.

Is Proteus art? That's up to you.

But it's something worth your time.

The game has nice music and looks pretty, but that's it.

For $12 you can walk around an island doing, well, nothing.

If you're deep enough to say "I totally get this game, maaaan", then sure, this game is probably right up your alley.

All the people who get it maaan have downvoted all the negative reviews. Such a great review system.

I hoped I could dig this, since I like the walking-exploration game Dear Esther, but the paths and narrator's story in that game create an objective to keep following the paths to hear all the story, whereas Proteus gives nothing to create an objective for one's exploration.

Proteus is ugly, and beautiful; empty, and full; depressing, and joyful.

Proteus is a game about discovery. After waking up to find yourself in (shallow?) waters, you wade toward an island and discover. The procedurally generated world hosts animals, landmarks, and oddities for you to find -- perhaps not all during your first playthrough -- and the music is shaped by your path and location. In other words, each time you visit Proteus, it truly is a new experience.

This game isn't for everyone. It's an extremely slow boil, and there are no objective markers, quest givers, or prompts popping up all over the place. Dialogue and terminals aren't drowning you in exposition. There is a narrative, but it's slight and so completely shrouded in mystery, that the actual point could simply be a projection of the player. There are things to do, but the question is: Are they important? Are they part of the island's mystery? Are they merely moments allowing you to catch your breath before seeking your true purpose, or are they diversions keeping you from your end goal?

This isn't meant as an insult, but rather a caution: If your entire Steam library consists of shooters and survival horror titles (likely containing zombies), you will likely hate Proteus. If your Steam library contains thoughtful adventure games, puzzlers, and ambient experiences, give Proteus a spin. It's been priced as low as $1.99 so even if it's not really your thing, you'll probably get your money's worth.

I know I certainly did.

The closest thing to an acid trip you are going to experience without a drug, but in a fantastically beautiful and minimalisticly artistic way. You will wander around an island created in a pixilated simplistic graphical style and listen to odd and exhilarating music and sounds. At first I thought what the F*@K is this thing and thank goodness I picked this up on sale for next to nothing. But then a funny thing happened, as I began to explore the island and interact with its wildlife and landscape I became swept away in it. After I explored enough I was able to find the whirlwind vortex to advance the island to the next season, and the next and then the last. What an unusually odd but worthwhile way to spend an hour. Not a game per say, definitely more of an experience, but if you like art (especially paintings), nature, the seasons and exploration do yourself a favor and experience what Proteus has to offer.

Visual pixelated eye candy at its finest. The way the colors work is satisfying, always mixing together naturally. I enjoy using this game as a way to calm me down. I love exploring the constantly changing scenery, it's like a psychedelic nature walk. It reminds me that there is still beauty in this world. Sure, there's no house jumping singing frogs in the real world, but it's close enough.
