Hi, Rob from Curve Studios here! We’re proud to announce that Proteus will be available tomorrow to buy directly from the PlayStation Store. The game has Cross-Buy functionality and is available to buy for £9.99/€12.99.
Proteus was designed by Ed Key and David Kanaga, and was released in 2011 on the PC. It’s a game all about exploring a dream-like, island world. The game’s music and sounds change depending on where you move, creating a different journey each time you play.
We’ve been working on this game all summer, and after releasing three other PlayStation titles this year here at Curve, you might not be surprised to learn our version of Proteus has a few additional features that are exclusive to the PlayStation versions of the game.
On the Vita version of the game, Proteus can generate an island based on your geographical location, and on the PlayStation 3, you can generate islands based on the current date.
Islands generated in this fashion will be the same for anyone in the same location or on the same day, and will also be more ‘wild’ than regular islands in the game, featuring various twists on the original’s islands and shifting, surreal colour palettes.
Players can also use the back-touch screen to gently affect the world around them, changing the island in subtle ways and remixing the colours of the world.
You can check out both our gameplay trailer and a short film starring Ed Key himself to get a feel for the game. Let us know what you think!
Proteus is a very unique experience, so if you have any questions about how the game works, I’ll be on hand below to try and answer them.
