Niche Spotlight – Quantum Protocol

Quantum Protocol

Today’s Niche Spotlight is Quantum Protocol, a deckbuilding game with roguelite elements and visual novel storytelling by Kaio Meris.

The world is threatened by an extremely dangerous and seemingly unstoppable strain of malware. Choose from one of six hackers and fight back in card-based battles and puzzles. Expand your deck with new programs, and even change your deck in the middle of battle, as you progress and come closer to unraveling the mysteries of the virus.

You can find the new gameplay trailer below.

Quantum Protocol is available on Windows PC via Steam for $12.99 USD.

You can find the rundown (via Steam) below:

Strategic deckbuilding combined with visual novel storytelling. Take on multiple scenarios. Some will be quick puzzles, others will be long tests of endurance. You’ll need to spend as much time planning your approach as executing it.

Change Your Deck. At Any Time.
Adapt to any situation quickly. But be careful, enemies will adapt as well.

Break Any System. Even the Game Itself.
Cards are your hacking tools. With so many to choose from, no two runs will be the same.

Behind Every Program, A Dream.
Experience the lives of the people behind the code. Even as an unstoppable computer virus threatens to destroy the modern world, sometimes the most important problems are the ones hidden inside each of us.
