Paradise (opens in new tab) /Hiversaires/Oquonie developer Devine Lu Linvega is modding Ed Key's Proteus, words which probably shouldn't feel as strange to type as they actually do. Inspired by Ian Snyder (opens in new tab) , the developer/musician is overhauling Proteus' colour scheme, reducing the palette to a collection of stark, muted shades, while adding new sprites, and crafting a new interactive soundtrack. Stick around for a trailer for Purgateus (opens in new tab) , and a link to that elegiac soundtrack.
In Devine Lu Linvega's own words, Purgateus' world "behaves just like Proteus, but looks and sounds different. In some strange ways, this is a video game remix". The mod will be made available on Brandon Boyer's terrific Venus Patrol (opens in new tab) soon, and if it's inspired you to mod Proteus yourself, you can grab the base game here (opens in new tab) .
As with the original Proteus, you'll make a unique version of Purgateus' soundtrack while you play by simply exploring its world, but Lu Linvega has recorded (opens in new tab) one of the possible arrangements and put it on Bandcamp here (opens in new tab) .
