For the first few minutes I was kind of impressed. The island was bigger than I had imagined based on my initial sighting. I started to look around and some things in the distance caught my eye. I found a cabin I couldn't enter. Some animals that I could sort of chase. And a weird circle of statues on a mountain that made the stars pulse like the universe was having a seizure. And then I thought, "Ok, so I've been here 5-10 minutes... I've seen most of what I can pick out as interesting features... is this it?" I walked around a bit more thinking, "What do I do now? Are there any goals or things to look for if only I had some hints?'" This is when I decided there was nothing more to do and quit the game.
And then I remembered the game was put out on PS3/Vita where it was required to have trophies. And as I looked at the Proteus trophy list (here: http://www.playstationtrophies.org/game/proteus/trophies/
), I once again felt like I got the short end of the stick by supporting this developer on PC before they ported their game to consoles and left us forgotten (much like those jerks at KLEI). Looking through the trophy guide there, at quick glance, it seems like the developer actually put some thought and effort into the trophy list, so I searched through the community forums here on Steam to see if anything was mentioned as far as developer commentary on the possibility of an achievement patch or why there will be none. Even KLEI, for all their hypocritical behaviour, at least tried to come up with a reason for not porting the trophies for Don't Starve into Steam achievements... but there was nothing. Even google didn't turn up much. Perusing the article on the game over at wikipedia, I found that the dev said that the features added to the PS versions "could come to PC in the future". This was over a year ago and nothing has been seen regarding it since then... and it's an absolute shame. Looking at the guides in the community section, it seems there's an actual goal and some other neat aspects of the game that casual gamers and players not using guides will miss out on. Achievements would be a way to help clue people in on theses aspects and encourage them with hints on ways to find them... but Steam users are left wanting and envious of the console ports.
I wish more developers would support their PC games and update them with the added content seen when the games are ported to consoles, much like The Astronauts have just done with The Vanishing of Ethan Carter (and the achievements added will probably match the PS4 trophy list, if I had to guess).
Don't buy this game, put your money toward something like The Vanishing of Ethan Carter instead.
