Proteus in the Humble Indie Re-Bundle 8, 1.2.1 patch

Hi!
From now until just under 21 hours time (until 11am PST 17 May 2014) Proteus is available as part of the 24-hour re-issue of Humble Indie Bundle 8. Go here to grab it: https://www.humblebundle.com/

We've also just uploaded patch 1.2.1 which is mostly a stability fix for OSX (but required a deceptively large amount of work, porting to SDL2)

Any problems, let me know at ed@visitproteus.com or @edclef on twitter.

cheers
Ed

(Never tried posting an announcement before - hope it shows up!)

Recensioner

“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

Om detta spel

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.

Proteus is a first-person exploration simulator. In it, you play as an individual who comes across an island, free of any other people but with plenty of wildlife. You explore it through both day and night of each of the seasons, enjoying the ambient music, changing weather, and various randomly generated locations on the island. As you explore, some of the wildlife will react to you, and the music/surroundings will change depending on the season, weather, time of day, and what's near.

This is a recommendation only based on whether or not that sounds interesting to the player. It's well done, and entertaining for what it is. It is, however, a style of game which likely has limited appeal.

Teratron: NO DOUBLE JUMP 3/10
aerozol: to be fair, double jump is always awesome
aerozol: CLOCK THE GAME YET?
Teratron: nah i'm in autumn though so close
Teratron: can't wait to 100%
aerozol: read a walkthrough huh
Teratron: i saw screenshots of autumn
Teratron: might take some grinding
aerozol: /spoiler winter's next
Teratron: GASP
Teratron: FRIEND RUINED THE END 3/10

Conclusion: Doesn't have double jump so possibly not a real game?
I really liked it, 3/10.

This game uses a very pretty colour palette but once you've walked around the island twice, most gamers get bored very fast. There are secrets to discover, however I unfortunately get a headache when I play this game and must stop after 20 minutes. For the general public I would not recommend this game, but perhaps those who enjoy pixelized graphics as well as games like Dear Esther and less so Gone Home might enjoy it.

(7/10) Interesting little interactive design. Its not exactly a game on its own but it is an interesting place to explore for a while and expirament with. Not particularly deep or long but it doesn't really need to be to share its mood and tone with you.

Im sorry but this is NOT a game. You just walk around and nothing happens ... NOTHING.

Going for a walk outside is more rewarding than this. Avoid.

Proteus isn't a game for everyone- or most people honestly. It's one of those things you'll either love or hate, perhaps similar to how people view Animal Crossing. Simply put, you walk around, see the sights and witness how things change through the seasons on a randomly generated island. Really it's about how you see it. There's no "plot" or objectives except what you make of it, there are little events and landmarks that you can find however. I'd recommend this game to people who just want to relax or do something calming. Honestly, whenever I play it invokes this sense of wanderlust and strange homesickness I'm not sure how to describe, but I personally keep coming back to now and again.

It is a nice little game. It is made so you can lose yourself in the relaxing music and beautiful pixel art. Not for those that are impatience or trigger happy.

A relaxing exploration game, though frankly, there's not a lot to find. I got it for pretty cheap, and I don't regret the buy, but for the small amount of content, it may not be worth the full price.
