    Lovely for a few minutes, but there's not much beneath the surface

    Rated on March 08, 2013 by dreamshade

    Proteus launches, and I am standing in the ocean, looking at an island in the distance. Everything I can see is constructed out of blocky, Atari-2600-ish pixels. Not knowing my purpose in this world, ...

    I actually bought this out of curiosity. Here're my experience after 1 hour.

    I actually bought this out of curiosity. Here're my experience after 1 hour. Sorry for my grammar. I'm not native. You spawned near a random generated inhabited island. The only thing you can do i...

    This is not a game!!!!!

    Rated on February 14, 2013 by grahamrenney78

    This is just lame. This is in NO way at all a game. It is just a procedurally generated world that you walk through. It is boring and uninspired. Perhaps if there was interaction it might have been so...

    As an idea, the potential is immense. As a game, merely interesting.

    The potential of this concept is immense. Maybe not as a game by itself but as a platform to a more complex and traditional game. This adds dynamics and awe fluidly and coerently to your average world...

    If you had the right kind of drugs you might be able to play this a couple of hours . .

    An over hyped, totally disastrous attempt to be amusing and old school charming. It falls flat on its face because it is just too boring, boring, boring. A high resolution landscape slideshow with m...

    Minecraft achieved this game goals years ago, much better and offering and actual gameplay. Want some wonders? NOT HERE.

    Rated on February 21, 2013 by sleipnir796

    Don't believe the trailers or the happy reviews. This game tells one thing and never pays off. You will be told that this game will immerse you in a wonderful game, with plenty off creatures and lands...

    Minecrafts poorer brother who cant do anything

    Rated on February 22, 2013 by jockmcrowdy

    Sorry this was completely lost on me, from the glowing 8.0 review I was thinking this could be a better version of majestic self made moments from other games, like when in Skyrim you climb a mountain...

    Naaaahhhhhh not quite it used to be.... When watching squares used to be nice to look at.

    Rated on March 12, 2013 by Ariany360

    If you want to see an environment that reacts to your presence, but it's all there is. You do NOTHING in the game, squat, nada. All you are is a camera floating around. Please.. Let go of the pi...

    Rated on April 11, 2013 by dkojof

    I want to explain, through my understanding, why is it that the majority here is being unable to enjoy this game. who knows, maybe someone can snap out of the trance and wake up to reality of self-kno...

    Is this a game?

    Rated on June 04, 2013 by GaudyMarrko

    Well... it made me reevaluate the majesty of low budget graphics whilst providing an ambiance that is hard to come by in a video game. But honestly who are they kidding, I could get the same experienc...
