What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Hand of Fate was Kickstarted last December, and since then we've had constant input from all of our backers which has helped to improve the game immensely. We're now ready to let the rest of the world see what we've been up to, and get their help in wrapping up the process. We can't wait to get fresh eyes on the game, and continue to improve it.”

How long will this game be in Early Access?

“We intend to wrap Hand of Fate up by the end of the year, and then focus on additional content and new projects.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will be balanced and polished (UI, combat, etc). We're now content complete, and tweaking the game balance and fixing bugs.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current build is largely content complete. Some VO and SFX are missing, but the majority are in place. The final boss battle is not yet implemented, and there are ongoing improvements to game polish and UI.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Final release price to be determined.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Community feedback has been a huge help in making Hand of Fate the game it is today, from our initial showing at PAX Aus to the comments we've had from our Kickstarter backers. The best thing about making a game today is hearing from our audience while we can still make changes to the game we're making!”

Reviews

“Hand Of Fate Deals Out Fantastic Roguelite Combat”
Game Informer

“Fun combat, solid roguelike dynamics, and an engrossing atmosphere make this one of the most compelling games on early access. And with the newly-introduced endless mode, there’s no limit to how deeply it can suck you in.”

About This Game

Deckbuilding comes to life in Hand of Fate!

An infinitely replayable series of quests - earn new cards, build your deck, then try to defeat it!

In a cabin at the end of the world, the game of life and death is played. Draw your cards, play your hand, and discover your fate. Hand of Fate is a hybrid roguelike/action-RPG/deck builder, in which the player builds a set 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 hands as fully modeled 3D assets, and combat begins.

Build your deck, enter the world of Hand of Fate, and prepare to face the Ace of Skulls.

Key Features

* Tabletop card game brought to vivid life.
* A unique take on roguelike gameplay.
