The Blind Prophet is a point-and-click adventure developed by independent studio Ars Goetia. The production was created thanks to a successful crowdfunding on Kickstarter, and the source of inspiration for its creators was not only a classic genre, led by Broken Sword and Blade Runner series, but also cult comics like Sin City or Hellboy.

Plot

In The Blind Prophet we find ourselves in the city of Rotbork, which plunges into ruin, succumbing more and more to demonic influences. The main character of the game is Bartholomeus - one of the twelve Apostles, or divine soldiers, who for over two thousand years have been trying to restore the balance between good and evil, appearing both on Earth and in Hell, Purgatory and Heaven. The plot has a non-linear construction, and how the fate of the protagonist and Rotbork will unfold depends on the decisions made by the player.

Mechanics

In The Blind Prophet, we travel through a city of ninety-nine boards bathed in the darkness, talk to neutral characters and make morally ambiguous choices that influence the story's further course. In addition, there are a number of puzzles waiting to be solved that require acquiring specific items and using them in various ways, or carefully combing through the location in search of useful tips. Production has a simple and intuitive user interface.

Technical aspects

Two-dimensional graphics of The Blind Prophet were made in a cel-shading technique. The plot is conveyed mainly through film interludes consisting of static scenes shot in comic style. The game takes place with the accompaniment of climatic, gloomy soundtrack.
