Proteus came out on PC about a year ago and it was finally released on Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita last Tuesday. The game is cross-buy, which means you get both versions for the same price: €12.99 / $13.99 (with a 10% discount for all PS+ members in the next two weeks). We edited one video of the PS3 version and uploaded a gallery of images from the Vita version, so enjoy the peaceful ride!
The first thing to know before launching Proteus is that it's not a game per se. Indeed, withtout any type of narrative elements or even gameplay mechanics, it is hard to consider it as your typical indie title. All you have to do is enjoy a nice stroll on a 3D deserted island where nature seems to have been modeled in good old 2D. The day/night cycle, the passing of time which makes you go from spring to winter, the weather effects, everything is made to provide a very relaxing experience. Wandering around for no other purpose than to look at a sunset or the local fauna won't please everyone, but there is no denying that it is particularly soothing. Proteus is so smooth on both systems that it adds to the overall zen vibe the title has, and since what "happens" is random, there is no real certainty when you play it again. That being said, we're not sure many people will enjoy one playthrough, let alone several of them, but you won't know unless you try. The main problem is that Proteus is still a bit expensive, and however beautiful it is, its price tag may be enough of a deterrent the most curious amongst you guys.

Gorgeous has ok mechanics but actually gameplay can become tedious and boring imo. (2 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: the world needs to open up to pvp ie 8v8 etc. Use ARMA Wasteland mod for guidance and you have a sure fire hit but they won't even be thinking that far ahead. An open world game that looks (2 Hours ago)
we need another splinter cell...only few missions deep on blacklist and it's on backlog but damn that's a good game (2 Hours ago)
I really like the idea of GRW.. I wish the world was a little more interactive and the experience a little more varied. (3 Hours ago)
I'm definitely not getting it at launch if I'm ever playing it. (3 Hours ago)
But yea.. the beta didn't really aid my interest in the game. They may have missed the mark on this one. (3 Hours ago)
