‘Proteus’ Heading to PS3 and Vita this Fall


Curve Studios will bring Ed Key and David Kanaga’s sensory exploration game Proteus to Playstation 3 and PS Vita, according to a post by the publisher on the US PS Blog. Curve has helped port well-known indie titles such as Thomas Was Alone, Stealth Bastard and Lone Survivor to Sony’s PS3 and Vita in the past year.

For the uninitiated, Proteus is an incredible audio-visual affair that’s taken home dozens of awards and is occasionally playable on a trampoline (trust me, I saw the set-up at GameCity last year). It’s set on a procedurally-generated island, so every time through is its own unique experience of discovery and wonder. Alright, I may be laying it on a little thick – but it really is an awesome game.

The Playstation port will carry Sony’s cross-buy feature between the console and handheld platforms, and Curve also hints at some improvements over the original PC version – specifically stating that they’ve been working closely with Key on the matter, and that more information (including release date and price) will arrive in the coming months.

For the impatient, Proteus is currently available on Steam for $9.99. Check out our Let’s Try video of the game.
