What follows is a recollection of an intriguing item called Proteus. About 2500 words. It is long, drawn out, and entirely pointless. Muddles thoughts and bad grammar together. Mixed past, present, and future tenses. A rushed ending. Somewhere between it is either full of mild spoilers or philosophical ramblings, or maybe it is nothing at all.
Followed by an afterword of sorts.
It all comes down to the ramblings of a 20-year-old student on a day which he should have used more productively.
As I sat at my desk in the morning (or afternoon, I couldn’t really tell, I’d just woken up) where I was contemplating on what I should spend my day doing, on the Saturday 2nd February 2013. On an impulse of sorts I decided to purchase for $10 USD or around £6.50 GBP a curious little thing called Proteus.
There I sat hastily typing in my financial details over at http://www.visitproteus.com/ to grab a copy of the game on my Humble account. Soon after I grabbed my steam key, shoved it into my library with my other assortment of games I had yet to play, and had it downloaded and launched, all within a space of a minute.
I marveled at the menu screen, played around with the options menu, and then began what was supposedly a relaxing and intimate experience.
What on earth had I just bought!?
However without thinking about that any more about that I decided to explore this new environment.
