About This Game

The Spiritual. The Supernatural. The Skeptical. All are touched upon in Nostradamus: The Last Prophecy. The player is immortalized as a profiler of sorts in this treasure hunt game - a brilliantly vivid historical rendition of the acclaimed quatrains of Nostradamus.

The adventure begins in the South of France as Salon-de-Provence, and its Royal Family fall prey to unfathomable terrors. You play as Madeleine de Nostradame, the daughter of the famous astrologer, author and apothecary as she hunts down an assassin who uses astrology to disguise his crimes as fearsome prophecies. But when past, present and the uncertain future collide…your more logical nature may turn superstitious.

Luckily I got this game on the cheap.

While the game itself is OK, the puzzlesolving mechanics are really terrible. I dont think I've ever been so aggrevated while playing a game. Repeatedly you'll find yourself solving puzzles you really have no way of solving, or so you think. Turns out, for the most part, you'll have to flip between the pages of your in-game diary, or jott down symbols that you have seen on a wall or similar places.
If they would have made this game so that once you know the basics of the solution so does your character, then this game would have been more enjoyable. As it stands now, it really is'nt.
Also the dialog can't be skipped. This turns really irritating when you have to play certain parts again, or if you happen to click on the wrong dialog option by mistake. This was especially annoying when I at one point had limited time to solve a puzzle, but I obviously had more than enough time to listen to a bunch of rather meaningless dialog.
There were a few bugs I experienced, one of which almost made me quit playing, but nothing really gamestopping.

If you're an experienced "point'n clicker" and one of the most patient humans alive, you might enjoy the story however. The puzzles were also good (if the mechanics had been better, that is) and quite original. Once you had solved them, and after you stopped crying and trying to scratch your eyes out, you really get a sense of achievement. Because it's really not an easy game.
The voice acting was so-so, the graphics are OK and the music is... present.

I don't think I could have finished this one without a good walkthrough though. So if you plan on playing this game I suggest you find one online.
I also suggest that you make sure noone can hear your screams of rage...

My last tip, for those of you brave enough to venture forth, would be; read your diary. Then read it again, and again, and again... and again. Are you still here? Hello?

As far as point and click games go, I enjoyed it. While the plot was a little... contrived, I did like the theming.

Good:
For the most part the puzzles were enjoyable. My favorite part was the potion brewing.
The enviroments and puzzles are pretty!
Your goals are petty straighfoward, and for the most part it's hard to get stuck.
Astrology! Alchemy! Potions! Stars!

Bad:
Timed puzzles. Those are a sick and cruel joke.
Sometimes it felt like you were relying on dear ol' dad's help too much.
Meh to stiff voice acting.
Controls can cause motion sickness.

It's defintaly not an easy game to finish.

Some of the puzzles are very intricate and there's no hints, so expect to get stuck and have to look at a walkthrough. The fixed resolution is a tad annoying from the perspective of using the steam overlay but other then that you'd not notice. The graphics are detailed, it's just quite bare, an example is that you only interact with about 8 characters.

All in all it's a simple game that lasts a few hours, would I recommend buying it? Not a full price anyway. I think I'd spend a little more money and invest in Machinarium over this

Good game, some puzzles take a long time (too long in my opinion) to collect all items and mix etc. Did not like having to replay the crumbling cave scene over 25 times just to get through. Otherwise a decent game wih a fun plot line.

Good game to work your way though in a day or so and the puzzles were sometimes of the very obvious side.

When the game started there was nothing regarding checking that you were dressed..... wasn't until Nostradamus made a comment about not worrying about catching a cold or somthing that I when and checked (dunno if that effected the points obtained).

Once you get use to the mouse directional movements it is really easy to navigate.... the way the invetory is .... meh
There were one or two glitches where one item kept on appearing and disappering from the inventory that I hadn't picked up until the very end of the game.

The parts of the game that I was able to play weren't bad. I hit the cosmic return puzzle, and am unable to progress further due to a bug. (Some people have had luck manually changing their window size to correct this, but I'm uninspired enough to bother at this point.)

The atmosphere is well done, and the story is pretty good. The puzzles are fairly easy to solve if you've seen all your clues and understand how your tools work. While I can't reccomend this game, picking it up on sale might be worth giving it a try.

Even though the small part of the game I played held my interest, I can't recommend it because I encountered a game stopping bug early in the investigation. When I reached the point of needing to visit a certain character in their office the door was inaccessible. It just wouldn't open so I can't progress any farther. I know others have managed to play beyond this point with no problems but I'm not one of them. If it ever changes, I'll revisit this review.

I also wasn't expecting to have to pass a quiz at the beginning of the game either. I had to answer a couple questions twice because my first guess was wrong. To be fair though, I'm probably not the target audience for this game as I was never interested in astrology and the zodiac or Nostradamus so I don't know much about the zodiac beyond my own sign and the names of a few others. I did much better with the history questions and even the odd question about an apothecary ingredient found in the ocean as history is an area that has always held my interest.

I'm a little disappointed I can't continue because I was wondering if any of the stuff I was quizzed on would come up later in the game. But perhaps the developers just had Nostradamus quiz her, and thus the player, to lend some realism to the concept of Madeleine masquerading as her brother, Cesar. It would be a very poor attempt at subterfuge if she knew nothing about astrology, history, medicine, etc. I guess I'll never know which is the case and just have to be thankful I bought this cheap when it was a weekly deal so I didn't waste too much money.

If you are a mac user, don't buy it! There is a bug in the very beginning of the game, where is impossible to exit the dialog with Nostradamus when you show him the coloring cream.

Here is another "old" game that I was very happy to be able to play after so long. I didn't remember most of it anyway.

What I truly love about this game is that most of the puzzles are very logical (and rather simple), unlike the new tendency of adventure games, which are usually based on gathering a lot random items without apparent reason, which you will have to combine (I positively hate pixel hunting), and where you don't always understand what you are supposed to do or, more important, why. In this game, everything you do has a purpose in the story. Futhermore, some of your choices have an impact on your progress (and score).

I liked the story and the artwork so much, that I didn't care that the quality of the graphics was not the last of the last. Oh, and I found a little bug that made me have to restart the game (the importance of saving).

Now, the truth is that it is a short game and the only interest of playing it again would be to try to get a higher score. But I am a sucker for this exact kind of game, so I loved it (and replayed it!).

From all the forum posts AND the problems I have with this game...
if you buy it, buy it as cheap as possible because you have like a 50/50 chance of it working properly.

The gameplay is awesome though, just what I like about point and seek puzzle games!
It reminds me of old classics like Monkey Island and The Dig from LucasArts but...

The bugs in this game are not worth the aggrevation!
I DO NOT Recommend this game.

Recommended with reservations - this is a decent game, but it didn't capture me, mainly because I'm not into astronomy and the pace is slow since I got stuck a lot.

I've only played the first day, so far, no hidden objects. There's a bit of recipe mashing, collecting ingredients and such, but for the most part, it is point & click.

The graphics are 1024x768, and that looks decent enough (remember, TV and DVD have had worse resolution for decades). The graphic art is actually well done, I've seen a lot cheaper (and the orginal Myst never looked as good). That said, it is still a game where you stop at fixed positions, and then you can rotate the view and interact with the surroundings, or move to another position.

The game gets full marks for the atmosphere and the storyline so far; for the actual puzzling, there are too few hints, which had me needlessly stumped because I couldn't figure out what the game wanted me to do.

Motion sickness.... Warning if you're the type of person that gets motions sick over games that where you move your 'eyes'/ view with your mouse this is not the game for you! I'm not sure if it's just the way this game was designed but the way the game moves when you move your mouse is very nausiating. If you can get passed the nauseating part of this games movement it might be fun to play. I wish I could give this to my sister because I just can't play it without getting physically sick! If I'd know this game was set up like you're looking through the main characters eyes I woud not have bought it!

This is an adventure game, pretty much like all others, but with some annoyances that makes it impossible to recommend it.

First, the settings. Which really aren't there... The game uses quite a low resolution, which cannot be changed at all. Low res on a 24" monitor, plus low fps (I'm guessing it's locked at 30 or so) - almost immediately after starting playing, it feels very straining on the eyes.

The game itself:

There hardly anything that explains how to play, and you'll have to mess around with the inventory a bit to understand how things works. That is, after you actually have found some items. Puzzles can be absolutely horrible, not because of the difficulty, but because of poor mechanics. For example, I was going to mix ingredients, did something wrong, and lost everything, with the result having to run around gathering them again.

The difficulty is mostly determined by how good you are at finding things, nothing else. If you overlook an item, a puzzle won't be solvable, and it's not easy to find them all. Nothing reveals what can be picked up, unless you point directly at it.

The game has voice acting - obviously they didn't hire professionals for it, because it's horrible.

Small changes could have made this one an excellent game, but as it currently is, I wouldn't recommend this game at all.

Serious jerky motion problem (Win8 x64, Radeon) that came and went without knowing what caused it.

The PC version does not play on a multiscreen setup! The exe. file runs a black screen (audio is working), which you cannot get past. I've tried all different kind of reconfigurations with the AMD Vision Engine (and by God, I am not running anything close to a current graphics card (an AMD Radeon HD 6800)), so even an old game like this should be able to cope.

It was just 5 bucks with the 50% off promotion by Steam, but, still, this sucks. DO NOT BUY. Crap on Steam!

This game is an atrocity, portraying every religious believer in it as a deeply evil mass murderer.

Oh look a bishop. Yup, trying to butcher hundreds. Oh, now a priest. Yup, same thing.
Hey, there's a monk... Yup, you guessed it.

By purchasing this game you are funding the most vile bigotry that exists on steam.

I deeply regret playing this game.

An absolute gem of a find. Though many may be turned away by the chunky graphics, this is a game that has really captured the true experience of a well made and thoughtful point-and-click adventure game. The voice acting is well done, the graphics (though blocky) are still pleasing to the eye, and the storyline is top notch.

The puzzles range from simple recipies to weight distribution to complex translation of old celtic to french. Though you may find yourself doing many crafting puzzles, they are balanced thoughout the game and not used as a crutch, but as a way of transitioning the player from one objective to the next.

The only issue I had with the game was that several timed puzzles and one particular quick-time event left me frustrated. It is important to save and save often.

Other than that, this game was one of the most thought provoking and inviting point-and-click games I have ever played. Being a history buff, I would love to see more games like this, perhaps with characters from William Shakespeare plays. I would recommend anyone who wants a true adventuring experience like Myst to check this out.

Great game. Interesting and good game play. Beautiful to look at and runs well. The puzzles are a little cimplistic and it can be slightly stilted.
