Deck-building card-based games really are all the rage now! I'm okay with this, as I love them and I am excited to see what more developers do with it. Nowhere Prophet is one that looks great and it's out next month. Developer Sharkbomb Studios and publisher No More Robots have now confirmed the release date of July 19th. We got confirmation back in April, that Linux will be supported too.

Set on planet Soma, this science-fiction post-apocalypse game mixes in two distinct modes of play. The first is the travel system, with you facing encounters across a procedurally generated map (so the game is different each time). If you enter combat, it switches into the turn-based card game mode.

The battle system does seem quite interesting. It's different, as your cards aren't your attack-types like other similar games, they're your actual people. However, you're not just putting people down onto the board, you will also play "action cards to dramatically change the battlefield" which I'm very curious to see in action.

Features:

  • Card-based tactical combat system
  • New procedurally generated maps each game
  • Find loot and recruit followers to build your deck
  • Unlock new content across multiple playthroughs
  • More than 300 cards for you to discover
  • Indian infused electronica soundtrack

The release will be up on Steam, so be sure to wishlist/follow if it seems like your thing. Since it's absolutely my type of game, I will be taking a proper look on or after the release.
