Proteus

Ed Key and David Kanaga

Proteus is an ambient musical game about observing and relating to the natural world and the passing of the seasons. Proteus is a game about exploration and immersion in a dream-like island world where the soundtrack to your play is created by your surroundings. Played in first-person, the primary means of interaction is simply your presence in the world and how you observe it.

Ed is a former developer of commercial videogames, forager and observer of seasons. David is an American composer and game designer, known for his interactive scores for computer games. He created Oikospiel Book 1 (a dog opera) and Soft Valkyrie (an unabridged podcast version of Wagner’s Die Walküre).
