Description

Nowhere Prophet is a roguelike deck-building game. It is set on the the hostile planet Soma, a century after a galaxy-wide, catastrophic technological failure. The player leads an exodus across randomly generated maps, searching for the mystic Crypt, a place promising a safe future. During these travels the player can build and tweak his card decks. Beacuse to defeat his enemies along the way the player needs to play and win a card game.

History

Martin started work on the project in mid 2014 with some early prototyping, searching for an interesting conflict resolution mechanic. The game is inspired by his cultural heritage and his love for games like FTL or Magic: The Gathering. In early 2015 Nowhere Prophet recieved public funding for the production from the MFG Baden-W├╝rttemberg. Since then the team has been increased. The game is currently in development for PC with later releases for consoles and tablet planned.
