Game release: “The Blind Prophet” (PC)

ARS GOETIA‘s, Plug In Digital‘s and Maple Whispering Limited‘s dark adventure game The Blind Prophet doesn’t only deliver a great comic book art style, but plenty of puzzles to solve as well.

Point-and-clickers never seem to go out of style these days thanks to indie developers, and this title is proof that one doesn’t have to rely on humorous storylines and characters. One plays as apostle Bartholomeus who has to free the corrupted city of Rotbork from the Great Evil, which seems appropriate for a divine mission. What this entails is obviously not of this earth, as demons have to be hunted down.

While this all sounds like the next third- or first-person shooter, every problem is solved in the good old adventure way: picking up items and using them in the most logical way with the environment. What sets the game apart from other puzzlers is that one moves in 99 static comic panels. The art style certainly looks intriguing and the brooding atmosphere is tangible. If the game can be as memorable and engaging as the games the development team was inspired by, e.g. Blade Runner (see GOG release news), Broken Sword (see my review) and Gabriel Knight (see my review), remains to be seen.

The game is out now on PC with a 10% launch discount that lasts until February 12, 2020, at 5 PM UTC.
