San Francisco, CA, February 12th 2019: Indie game developer Paul Miell, aka. Ahavah Studio is proud to announce February 22nd 2019 as the official launch date for The Prometheus Secret Noohra, a unique PC-game combining fast-paced card combat with exciting physics-based platforming fun. On the trail of a very successful PAX South exhibiting the game, Paul is thrilled to finally unveil his labor of love for the past three and a half years; a spellbinding 2.5D single-player gaming experience that gets more difficult each time the player is defeated. Dedicated to those battling their own darkness, struggling to defeat their own demons and fighting the good fight one day at a time!

The Prometheus Secret Noohra features a fast-paced magic card system with emphasis on speed and simplicity compared to traditional games with drawn out turns and complicated management of card decks. The more you are defeated in the game the greater chance a player has of gaining a Dark Trait that will empower card opponents. You begin with a base deck that can improve by collecting one card during each of the platform stages or by unlocking cards using tokens. Once you engage with darkness during a battle, there is no turning back, you are unable to disengage and leave the battle without first having to pay a penalty. Counters are used for each attack lane to help inflate attack and defense figures, a strategy from the opponent and spells will however decrease or nullify this. Firestorms or tornados can be cast to obliterate enemy cards from the playing field or alternatively, the enemy can play a full health card, which could secure a solid victory. Additionally, you can earn spirit scrolls and strategically string up to 4 scrolls together to enhance your fighting abilities during battles. A token management system is an important part of the game that replaces a typical game inventory and allows you 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, more hero characters can be unlocked from different time periods, each scaling up to provide the player with an increase in base health.

 

The Prometheus Secret Noohra highlights the continuous battle between light and darkness and the game gets physically darker and more challenging as the fire orb loses Noohra (Aramaic for light) with each defeat. The game features unique elements of platform-gaming by excluding the traditional jump and the control of movement over a character; you rely instead on placement, gravity and timing, coupled with upgradable orb abilities to maneuver through each stage. The platforming segments support card boss battles by enabling you to achieve tokens, scrolls, health and cards, all of which are required to remain competitive. There is replay functionality built into stages and can be applied after learning and upgrading orb abilities to achieve higher leader board scores. Orb abilities include 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) and Shield (Timeously protects you from creatures and traps).
