Nowhere Prophet is a #roguelike #deckbuilding #game for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Now on Greenlight, hence gameplay is set on the the hostile planet of Soma. A century after a galaxy-wide, catastrophic technological failure. So the player leads an exodus across randomly generated maps. All while searching for the mystic Crypt, a place promising a safe future. During these travels the player can build and tweak his card decks. And to defeat enemies along the way the player needs to play and win a card game most of all.

Therefore, do note that this bit of gaming news, this is a singleplayer card game developed in Unity 3D. With random generated routes and high difficulty, including permadeath. How does that work? Nowhere Prophet has two distinct phases of gameplay. Travel and combat.

During travel the player will navigate across a procedurally generated map. While supplying your convoy with the essentials and picking your route. On the journey players will encounter strange places and yet even stranger people. You will probably be thrust into situations that put the fate of your followers in your hands.
So if the Convoy is involved in a fight, the game changes to the turn-based card game mode. Here players can then pick Operators – powerful fighters and mystics then enter the fight. All while you play cards from each of your characters to overcome enemies.

Nowhere Prophet Greenlight Trailer:


  • A card-based combat system
  • Randomly generated trek and events
  • Build your deck as you travel the world
  • Unlock new content accross multiple playthroughs
  • Stunning and confident art style
  • A fresh non-western post-apocalyptic world
  • Indian infused electronica

So gameplay is really about being the last hope to a band of outcasts. Leading them across the randomly generated wastelands. Picking fights with greedy slavers and crazy machines using the turn-based card combat. But note this gaming news, always spend your resources carefully.
Will you support your convoy or improve your decks? And can you survive long enough to the mysterious Crypt?

The game is already in Alpha. That means that it is playable and almost all of our features are built. But: there’s still some bugs and a lot of content is missing. So Sharkbomb Studios will focus on tweaking and tuning the gameplay. While adding as much content as possible. Which means anything from cards to events to artwork.

So get your vote in on Greenlight for Nowhere Prophet. Supporting Linux, Mac and Windows PC, along with Android, iOS and consoles.
