Proteus: The Most Beautiful ‘Pointless’ Experience You’ll Ever Have

Proteus, recently released for the PS3/Vita, is a procedurally-generated sandbox exploration game with a gorgeous, brightly palleted pixel style, set within a third-dimension. With a focus on exploration and discovery, some would argue that Proteus is ‘pointless’, but pointless or not, it’s damned beautiful. (Curve Studios, Ed key, PC, Proteus, PS Vita, PS3)

After ten minutes I was so bored that I uninstalled it. At least I got it in a Humble Bundle deal.

It looks err....err....pointless??

Yeah I'm playing this on Vita and I have to say that while you may get some enjoyment out of it it is WAY overpriced at 10 dollars. 5 MAX is what it should cost.

I thought I was getting an experience like Noby Noby Boy where there will be funny random stuff happening on screen but its not even close to that.

if you get burned by Proteus get Noby Noby Boy and you'll feel better. Its 100 times superior at being an exploration game at half the price only costing 5 $.

Agreed and should have mentioned in the article - £9.99 is a little steep for this kind of game.

I ended up getting Noby Noby Boy a few years back for short of £4 I think and it's still enjoyable now. Loved that game.

Yeah for such a short and pointless experience I think anything more than $5 is a rip off.
