A roguelike deck-building gameNowhere Prophet is a single player card game with procedurally generated maps, a high difficulty and permadeath. At it's heart are two distinct parts of gameplay: Travel and combat.
During travel you navigate across a procedurally generated map. Make sure your convoy has enough resources to travel as you pick your route. On your journey you will encounter strange places and even stranger people. You will be thrust into situations that put the fate of your followers in your hands.
If you're lucky enough to gain some rewards, maybe for helping someone - or robbing them, then you can invest those to improve your decks. Recruit more followers to have more and different units to put into battle. Equip your prophet or level up and learn new skills to have access to stronger action cards in combat.
You will have to overcome some enemies to keep your convoy and resources together. And sometimes you may even want to pick a fight for righteousness or just for loot. Once in battle the game changes to the turn-based card game mode.
Play convoy cards to put your followers onto the field and position them so you can overcome your enemy. Or play action cards to dramatically change the battlefield. But be careful: If you're wounded you will have to find a safe place to heal. And if one of your followers takes too many wounds, they are lost forever.
A science-fiction post-apocalypseNowhere Prophet is set on a far off planet called Soma. Your story begins many years after the Crash, a complete technological collapse. Civilization has broken down and the lack of resources made everyone turn either bandit or madman.
In this world inspired by Indian culture you lead a convoy of outcastes. These desperate men and woman following your vision of a better future. Under your guidance they travel with you through the wastelands. Your goal is the Crypt, a mystical place that promises untainted technology and safety.
If you can survive long enough to find it.

Nowhere Prophet reviews and comments

Concise Review:

The future wasteland vibes meshed with dungeons and dragons style decision making was a lot of fun while it was fresh. It became repetitive.

The combat took some getting used to but grew on me the more I played. The balance between attacking the leader and keeping enemy units off the board is a interesting dynamic.

It’s lacking polish. The user interface is not great and definitely could be improved. I had a save file get corrupted and lost my run which was very frustrating because I really liked my build and I was very close to the end. Cards sometimes glitch and stay enlarged. Quick play didn’t work well, the controller wouldn’t move anything multiple times.

The longevity isn’t that great. I beat it twice with different leaders and builds and I didn’t feel the need to play again.

Overall it’s a low B+ and I enjoyed my time with NP but it will be forgotten quickly.

Final Score: B+
