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

16. května

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!)

Recenze

“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

O hře

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 je nádherná hra sice nic nemůžete dělat, jen chodit ale na tom nezáleží . Hra je ůžasná a plná překvapení a hudby cokoliv co uvidíte vytváří vlastní tón a když si vylezete na skálu až nad mraky je to nezapomenutelný a nejhezčí pohled který se vám vrije do paměti.

+ nádherná krajina
+ vždy jiný svět = jiná překvapení :)
+ zvuky a hudba u jednotlivých míst
+ překvapení

- není multiplayer :(
- nemůžete nic dělat ale to ani moc nevadí :)

koupit/nekoupit : rozhodně koupit :)
sleva/normální cena : klidně to tam šoupněte i za normální cenu :)

Proteus made me smile, intrigued me and even managed to lift my spirits.

Usually I go into details about the mechanics of the game and what I liked and didn't like...for Proteus, I really don't want to do that. It's a little like recieving a poem and a bunch of flowers and letting you wonder through the words and colours, it's really rather lovely.

Thank you Ed Key and David Kanaga.

It's kind of hard to describe Proteus in words to somebody who has not played it.

Sure, you can explain how it takes place on a randomly generated island where you walk around taking in the sights and sounds. You can tell somebody that all the critters and plants and other elements make their own sounds and tones which contribute to the dynamic musical experience of the game. You can even tell them about how different the island is from season to season, and about all of the little things to find and explore.

But no written description will really cover all of the emotions and experiences you get when you play through Proteus. Proteus is about the joy of beauty and discovery, and simply must be played to be fully experienced.

TL;DR If you like chasing frogs and turkeys this game is for you.

Now I'm not saying this is a terrible game by not recommending it. It just doesn't have much to it. You'll get maybe about 30mins to an hour of play out of it and you wont really accomplish anything. Your much better off taking any money you plan on spending on this game and just put it toward buying Minecraft if you don't already own that. This is just an island with exploration of pixels that involves only trees and a few bugs/animals and thats it. Sure there's 4 seasons, but that only changes the appearance of the world's textures. Not much bang for the buck.

If you like the outdoors, but can't go outside yourself, this game is for you. Even though this game is really good, I still reccomend going outside.
