Paul Miell is the owner of Ahavah Studio, "Ahavah" is a Hebrew word expressing God’s love for His people. With a life changing encounter with Jesus the focus of the studio is to use profits to help those in need. Indie games of light - our slogan produces an ethos of developing clean positive games and influencing the gaming industry to do the same. The 13 year old skinny nerdish me wanted to do the same thing this 50 year old not so skinny me wants to do now, develop insanely creative games. My first love for games started back in the 70s playing Pong, I then upgraded in the early 80s to a microcomputer the Commodore Vic 20, this opened my mind to the wonderful world of programming. My love for the old retro 2D arcade genre still remains in my heart and always influences my current game design.

The Prometheus Secret: Noohra is a unique single player 2.5D physics platformer and addictive fast paced CCG combined. This exciting new game is currently in development by a solo Indie developer over the past two and a half years. The game contains some elements of puzzle, RPG and a fast paced card boss battler. 

The game is dedicated to those who battle darkness in their lives in some shape or form and the battle between light and darkness therefore plays a major role in not only in the story but also in the mood and design of the game. Following the trail of an ancient prophecy the player discovers and is led by a fire orb filled with a powerful light known as Noohra. Noohra is a Aramaic word meaning the light of God. Each defeat will have multiple consequences as the player is consumed by darkness and their soul begins to slide down 7 levels along the Path Of Deeper Truths. Level 7 the soul being righteous and full of light down to 0 having no light and the soul being immoral. The darker the soul becomes the more chance the player will have of gaining dark traits that will empower the bosses they challenge. The player loses health and the fire orb loses light which makes it difficult for the player to spot required signs scattered around the world. The players XP leaks every 10 seconds by the amount of lost Noohra and lastly the player loses coins from their purse. Keeping the fire orb filled with Noohra makes it crucial for the player to progress within the game.

The token management system replaces a typical inventory and allows the player to make important decisions to gain as much game advantage by upgrading, trading, unlocking and earning coins. Additional player profile characters can be unlocked from different time periods, each scaling up to provide more base health for the player. 

The physics platform side of the game delivers some unique elements by doing away with the typical jump and physical player control over the fire orb during gameplay. The player instead relies on placement, weight, gravity and timing coupled with the orb's three abilities to maneuver through stages and reaching the portal. The platform stages support the CCG element by allowing the player to achieve tokens, scrolls, health and cards which are needed if the player wants to be competitive during the card boss battles. Players will find replay ability on platform stages after orb ability upgrades as they can then find new and unique ways of moving around the stage and gaining bigger awards. 

Boss battles are played out through the magic card system, the focus is on fast battle and simplicity and there is therefore no complicated management of card decks. Uniquely if the player does not have manna cards dealt in their hand they can decide to sacrifice a playing card in the Pool of Bethesda. This forces the player to tradeoff between having enough manna versus having adequate cards to play. One additional card can be collected on each platform stage to strengthen the deck, although the challenge will be reaching some of them. The player can additionally earn spirit scrolls and strategically string up to 4 scrolls together to enhance their fighting ability during battles. This works similar to the dark traits for the enemy where attack, defense, manna and health are increased by applying various classes of scrolls.
