Big Launch Tomorrow!



22nd February 2019 will be launch day for The Prometheus Secret Noohra, I am not sure if I am currently nervous or excited. The game is fun to play but mimics life's struggle with darkness, the more you are consumed by darkness the more difficult the game becomes. The game therefore requires perseverance and over time gets more rewarding as you progress, the sad thing is many throw in the towel too soon, there will be some who will persevere however and share their secrets of wielding the light of the Noohra to defeat darkness.




Noohra, an Aramaic word to describe the light of God is used within the game by learning to wield a orb of fire and light. The fire orb used in the 2D side of the game will lose light when you are defeated and darkness will begin to overshadow the stage. This slide towards darkness is indicated to the player by a gauge called the 'Path of Deeper Truths', the player starts out as righteous and slides down 7 levels, softly becoming egotistical all the way down to immoral where the orb is void of light. The challenge arrives when you need to conquer these physics stages to collect additional magic cards to be competitive against bosses who are fought through a card system. The more you die here the greater chance you have of gaining a dark trait, depression as example that will buff your next boss. Gaining enough resources during physics stages to buff yourself with spirit scrolls and de-buff your enemy will be crucial in eventually defeating the many minions the darkness mockingly sends against you.

Path of Deeper Truths (your soul status)
7 - Righteous: Acting in an honest and morally exemplary way. (full light)
6 - Egotistic: Opinionated, vain and boastful
5 - Self-centred: Concerned solely about one’s own interests and welfare
4 - Pessimistic: Tendency to expect only bad outcomes, gloomy, joyless and unhopeful.
3 - Odious: Deserving or causing hatred, hateful and detestable.
2 - Belligerent: Warlike and given to waging war.
1 - Destructive: Tending to destroy and causing destruction or much damage.
0 - Immoral: Bad, wicked and depraved. (no light)



I think the more complicated a game becomes the greater the challenge for the developer to help the player unlock it's rich value before losing interest. In the end here I stand at the brink of a launch, 3.5 years of detailed crafting, love, dedication and hidden secrets locked up in a single game that only I have knowledge of. My hopes that some will eventually persevere, take up the challenge and unlock it's treasures, teaching others to do the same.



Not only is this game a unique duel genre challenge but additionally contains a few mini game elements, the 'Wheels of Fortune' can be accessed once a required number of corresponding tokens are acquired, the player then tries to get the orb across a set of turning windmills to reach the furthest chest, the prize of coins for that chest will be multiplied by the players level.



'Spirit Scrolls' will buff the player during card battles, these are gained by guessing the correct scroll out of a total of twelve scrolls, the higher the category of scroll you are playing, namely copper, silver, gold and amethyst, the lower your odds. The player can place and use up to 4 scrolls at one time for card battles, the danger is the moment you lose one round against a boss you lose the placed scrolls.



The game begins in the Mayan temple of Herros, to move to the next world after completing all the stages and defeating the final boss you will need a 7 digit token code. These tokens can be spotted during the various 2D stages, the challenge lies with how much Noohra your orb contains, the darker your world the less chance you have of spotting them.



Darkness remains infinitely deceitful and stops at nothing on its quest to destroy all that is good. Throughout the game, the player is intimidated and manipulated by darkness and it is discouraging when it seems that darkness may yet again have an unfair advantage, as each defeat will have multiple consequences. One of those consequences is XP leak whereby the player loses XP every 10 seconds equal to the amount of Noorah lost.



The player relies only on gravity to maneuver the orb but can also wield 4 orb abilities to help reach the fire portal to clear the stage, the route this is done is up to the players imagination. During Pax South in January I saw some very creative minds maneuver the orb uniquely round obstacles to the finish line and create new leaderboard scores.

Fire Orb Abilities
  • Orb Weight: You can change the weight of the orb only before you release it, you will need to experiment with different weights to see what effect it has on items and the orb.
  • Force Push: Performing a Force Push will allow the orb to push off objects multiplied by its weight and momentum. You therefore cannot perform a Force Push while the orb is rolling but only by bouncing or hitting against an object. Collecting green force disks within the stage will fill your force meter to perform a push. The higher the upgrade the more powerful the Force Push and you additionally receive more force per disk collected. You can upgrade this ability to level 3. Every push earns you an additional 500 points.
  • Shield: Collecting shield orbs will fill your shield meter, activating the shield will use up your shield energy very quickly so use only when you are about to strike an enemy or trap. The higher the shield upgrade the more shield energy you collect, you can upgrade this ability to level 5.
  • Shockwave: Allows the orb to push objects away from itself using a powerful shockwave. The shockwave meter fills up automatically over time and depletes with every shockwave used. The higher the shockwave upgrade the more powerful the shockwave becomes. You can upgrade this ability to level 5, this ability can be useful to push wooden blocks to collect coins and keys that are out of the reach of the orb.

Can you unlock the secret and become a light bearer that can save humanity by shining the light of truth on the deception of darkness.

Game launches soon! - 22nd Feb 2019

Wow! only 5 days to go and the game launches, I remember being locked in a tower for years and thinking this code will never end. Now it's almost time to let down my hair, praying for a miracle...well my head is shaved. Here is a peak at a few cards you want to unlock to be able defeat the darkness.

The Dragon Lady, what an awesome card to play, with a reasonably good defense and a mean inflated total attack value of 10. Requires 9 manna to play but a card that could blast out your enemies defense in a lane and turn the tables on darkness. Your opponent answering with a "kill spell" card will reduce the inflated attack value to 6, additionally reducing the smile on your face.


Tyr is a tough Viking and a card you want in your deck, good inflated lane attack with a solid defense value.


The Manna card in the game is the spiritual supernatural sustenance the Noohra provides, this gives you the ability to power and play your spell cards. A unique feature to the game is if you are not dealt a manna card within your hand you may choose to sacrifice a playing card for manna. The tradeoff, will you have enough cards to attack or defend versus falling behind your opponent with regards to manna.


Probably the most controversial card in the Mythic Deck, when it's yours it's a super card, when your opponent plays it just before they were defeated then its super controversial. Life is never fair at times.


Hopeing to see many here after launch, each wanting to become light bearer in the fight around the world to defeat darkness.

About This Game

ABOUT THE GAME

The Prometheus Secret Noohra is a single player 2.5D physics puzzle platformer combined with fast-paced card combat.  This indie game is the labor of love of one man, created over a period of three and a half years and dedicated to all those battling their own darkness, struggling to defeat their demons and fighting the good fight one day at a time.

Noorah, Aramaic for the light of God, along with darkness, plays a major role in the game - not only in the story, but also dictates the mood and design of the game.

THE STORY


As shadow, the master of deception masquerades as a light, humankind remains enslaved and wrestles against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. There is an ancient prophecy that some continue to believe in – and so, a glimpse of hope still remains. "The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined."

Following the trail of this prophecy leads you to the Mayan temple of Herros, there on the altar of skulls called Golgotha you discover the fire orb. The orb is filled with fire and a powerful light known as Noohra, you must become the light bearer a hero commissioned to bring light and truth back into the world. Without a hero the souls of humanity move toward the coldness of certain death.

CONSUMED BY SHADOW


Darkness remains infinitely deceitful and stops at nothing on its quest to destroy all that is good. The fire orb must remain filled with Noohra in order for the player to remain righteous and make any progress. Throughout the game, the player is intimidated and manipulated by darkness and it is discouraging when it seems that darkness may yet again have an unfair advantage, as each defeat will have multiple consequences.

  • Path of Deeper Truths - A 7 level indicator that highlights the condition of the player's soul. Level 7 the soul being righteous and full of light down to zero having no light and the soul being classed as immoral.
  • Dark Traits - The darker the soul becomes the more chance the player will have of gaining a random dark trait, which will buff the bosses they challenge.
  • Health Points - The player will lose health.
  • Light - The fire orb will lose Noohra (light), which makes it challenging for the player to identify vital symbols scattered around the world(s). These symbols are needed for a time lock at the end of each world.
  • Experience Points - The player gains XP leak and will lose XP every 10 seconds equal to the amount of Noorah lost.
  • Wealth - Lastly, a player will lose coins from their purse.

PHYSICS PLATFORMER


The physics platform side of the game delivers some unique elements by excluding classic jump and the control of movement over the fire orb during gameplay. The player will instead rely on placement, gravity and timing, coupled with a number of upgradable orb abilities to subsequently maneuver through the stages.

The platform stages support the card boss battles by enabling the player to collect tokens, scrolls, health and cards, which are required in order for a player to remain competitive. There is replay functionality built into stages and can be applied by players after they learn and upgrade the fire orb's abilities to achieve higher leader board scores.

Orb Abilities
  • Noohra (Light that drives back shadow)
  • Weight (Affects the way the orb will react to objects)
  • Force Push (A push calculated by weight and momentum)
  • Shockwave (Pulsates objects away from the orb)
  • Shield (Timeously protects you from creatures and traps)

CARD BOSS COMBAT


Boss battles are played out through a fast paced magic card system with the focus on both speed and simplicity over other typical card games that can have drawn out turns and complicated management of card decks. The player starts out with a base deck and can then strengthen the deck by collecting a card during each of the platform stages or by unlocking cards using tokens. Being defeated during the platform stages would mean a greater chance of gaining a dark trait and buffing the bosses. Once the player engages with darkness during a battle, there is no turning back – the player cannot disengage and leave the battle without first having to pay a penalty. Do not turn your back on the dark.

A set of counters are used for each attack lane to help inflate attack and defence figures – a defensive strategy from the opponent and spells will however decrease or nullify this. A player could cast down a firestorm or tornado to obliterate the enemy’s cards from the playing field and on the other hand, the enemy could play a full health card, which could secure him a solid victory.

Manna strategy is important. If a manna card is not dealt, the player can opt to sacrifice a battle card in the Pool of Bethesda to gain one manna. This position could force the player to strategize and direct a trade-off between either having sufficient manna or adequate battle cards to play.

Players can additionally earn spirit scrolls and strategically string up to 4 scrolls together to enhance their fighting abilities during battles. This works similarly to the dark traits for the enemy, where attack, defence, manna and health are increased by applying various classes of scrolls.

TOKEN SYSTEM

A token management system replaces the typical game inventory and allows the player to make decisions to gain as much game advantage as possible. Tokens can be collected throughout the game and be used to upgrade, trade, unlock and earn additional coins. By using these tokens, additional hero characters can be unlocked from different time periods, each scaling up to provide the player with an increase in base health.
