Proteus in the IndieGameStand Store
Pay $1.49+ to unlock:
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. The interplay of day, night, seasons, creatures and magical locations create a curiously serene atmosphere, when the primary interaction is simply your presence in the world and how you observe it.

“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

“…you definitely will want to explore Proteus’s island – trust us on that.” - Edge

“The best song I’ve ever played… Your play is what explains this piece, but the piece itself would work in isolation.” - PC Gamer

“What surprised me most about Proteus was I found myself going back to it over and over. There’s something delightfully intoxicating about it” - IGN

“This is a world that feels alive, and it feels as though you’re a part of it…. It’s enough to just wander, and have the world sing to you.” - Eurogamer

“Is it possible, though, to boil a game down to pure exploration? Dispense with the puzzles, points, rewards and any hoops to jump through?” - Electron Dance

“There is no jumble of videogame assets here, no back story, no audio diary, nothing, just an island, somewhere, with beautiful noise and curious life. I miss Proteus when I’m not there.” - Rob Fearon (owVideogames)
