Developed by Defiant Development
for PC, Mac, and Linux, Hand of Fate
is a blend of tabletop card gaming and video game magic, inspired by tarot and fantasy. This is a card based roguelike where the player builds a collection of cards into a deck, which is then used to deal out the dungeon floors through which they adventure. Upon entering a combat, all of the cards the player has collected fly into their character's hands as fully modeled 3D assets, and combat begins.
Hand of Fate uses a deck building mechanic that allows players to choose both the types of loot they will gain and even the type of adventure they will embark upon. Most roguelike games use randomness to increase game difficulty, Hand of Fate uses Deck Building mechanics so the player can completely customise and control their game experience, which is then randomly distributed as the dungeon level they delve into.
Hand of Fate is now available on Steam Early Access - ten fresh screenshots
and a couple of videos have been added in our download section.
Update: Hand of Fate will be coming to PS4 in Q4 2014 and PS Vita in Q1 2015.
