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.
