Long time, no update!

What have we been up to, and where have we been?

Truth is, other than occasionally popping up in the forums, we've been heads down wrapping up Hand of Fate 2, and getting everything in position so we can confidently ship a game we're happy with. More than happy, delighted. We're getting close to that point, but this isn't a post to announce the date - we're still working that out with platform holders, but we'll lock it down soon and let you know here. It will be this year, though.

Here though I thought it was worth giving you a little more details about how HoF2 development has been going, how we've been spending our time, and to let you know we'll be regularly updating between here and release (and beyond).

For the past year we've had HoF2 in a pretty solid state and we've been focused on balance, tweaking, clarity, and mechanical fixes. During that period we've rolled out several closed alpha/beta tests, to groups of 1-500 people at a time. The feedback and data from those tests has been incredibly useful to us - and has also delayed us beyond our initial planned release date.

Now, however, the game is in a great state. It's so much bigger and better than Hand of Fate 1 - roughly four times as large, and that content is also much more varied and much deeper than the original Hand of Fate. It feels like we as a studio have really hit our stride with this one. It's definitely the best game I've ever worked on - and I've worked on some pretty great games during my time at Irrational Games and Relic Entertainment.

These are some of the places we've spent our time :

- 22 unique challenges, each with it's own story and mechanics.
- Completely overhauled combat system, with multiple weapons and combat styles (dual wield, two handed, sword and shield)
- 4 unique companions, each with their own story lines
- SO MANY TOKENS!
- Weapon tokens, too!
- Hundreds of unique encounters
- Over 100 pieces of gear
- Translated into a dozen different languages
- Releasing on PS4 and Xbox One (including enhancements for PS4 Pro and Xbox One X)
- Amazing art from all of our team
- New monsters, amazing bosses, charming NPCs

Here's a link to some animated gifs from our crew that give you a look at some of the environments and characters - and we've also updated the Steam page with some fresh screenshots.

We want to make sure that when you play Hand of Fate 2, it's the best possible game we can give you. We're very close to being able to do that. Thank you so much for bearing with us - we've been working hard to make sure it's worth the wait.

Hand of Fate: Ordeals Hits Kickstarter and Smashes its Goal in Six Hours!

We are very excited to announce that not only has the boardgame adaptation of Hand of Fate, HoF: Ordeals, hit Kickstarter, but it smashed its KS goal in less than six hours! Now that we’ve all had our morning coffees and shaken the disbelief out of our systems it’s time to reveal the first stretch goal - Goblins!

If you’ve encountered goblins in Hand of Fate before, you know what to expect from them on the tabletop: they’re going to steal your equipment! If you manage to take them down, however, you’ll be very richly rewarded.

Looking to future unlocks, there are a couple of addition encounters and trap challenges we're approaching the threshold for, and then the first of our big exciting secrets! Things so secret that I may have already said too much!

If you’re keen to pledge or to take a look at what we’re offering, head on over to Hand of Fate Ordeals on Kickstarter!

We’d love to have your support!
