Everything in Proteus is procedurally generated, which means the game is different each time you play. The game plays through all four seasons before the end, and it's nearly impossible to see everything in the game with one play through.

The music and sounds in the game are what really make it special though, and everything you encounter as you explore has its own musical signature, so just like the island, the music changes depending on where you choose to go.

Here at Curve we've been working with Ed to make the PS Vita and PS3 versions even better than the original, and over the next few months we're going to have more information on how we're using the...
