Description [fr]

Un jeu d'exploration et de découverte, par Ed Key (développeur) & David Kanaga (musicien).

Proteus est un jeu d'exploration, de découverte et d'immersion en vue subjective sur une île paradisiaque où tout est généré de manière procédurale - y compris sa bande sonore générée par l'environnement.
Votre seule interaction est votre présence dans ce monde comportant des créatures naturelles et imaginaires, de tranquilles vallées et des ruines aux propriétés magiques.

Description [en]

A game of audio-visual exploration and discovery by Ed Key and David Kanaga

“An experience not unlike that bit in a movie where a child wanders into some weird wonderland and ends up gazing about in slack-jawed delight.” – Rock Paper Shotgun


☑ 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.
