Hand of Fate 2 Briarfolk Modding Contest Begins!



Let the game-making begin! From now until the 15th of October, we'll be holding a modding contest on the Steam Workshop to showcase our new Briarfolk faction! From deep within the Aeldwen Forest, they come - but are they friend or foe? We want you to tell us!

The contest is open to mod-makers of all levels of experience, and to mods of all sizes: single encounter, encounter chain, companion, challenge - it's up to you to wow us with your Briarfolk adventure!

And what will you be competing for? The winning modmaker will receive a copy of the Kickstarter-exclusive special edition of Hand of Fate: Ordeals, signed by the team at Defiant. This limited item is exclusive to backers - it won't be available as a retail item, and it comes packed with additional game modes and content. You don't want to miss your chance to own this beautiful collector's item.



Eligible mods will need to be uploaded to the Steam Workshop between the 17th of September and the 15th of October and include the words Briarfolk Community Mod Contest in the Workshop description. We'll be providing modding tips and highlighting some of our favorite mods over the course of the competition on the forums and our Discord channel. Work has also begun on establishing a modding wiki, which will make it a little easier to find the exact bit of editor-related info you're looking for. The HoF2 Modding Wiki can be found here.

To help players find and activate mods in-game, we've taken the opportunity to spruce up the in-game modding UI. You'll now be able to see additional mod details as well as view a carousel of content highlighted by the dev team.

So what are you waiting for? It's time to grab a copy of the HoF2 SDK and leave your mark on the Game of Life and Death!

Reviews

“A bigger, better game than its predecessor in almost every respect, and one with a sense of journey and surprise to its gambling, fighting and dying, which makes it feel rather like a card-based, fantasy FTL”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Hand of Fate 2 improves upon nearly every aspect of the original, providing diverse new challenges that help build the world around the Game of Life and Death”
8.5 – GameWatcher

“The result is a captivating Dungeons & Dragons-style adventure grander and more fulfilling than its predecessor, one that is clear proof that Australia is capable of making games just as well as anywhere in the world.”

About This Game

Hand of Fate 2 is a dungeon crawler set in a world of dark fantasy. Master a living boardgame where every stage of the adventure is drawn from a deck of legendary encounters chosen by you! Choose wisely - your opponent, the enigmatic Dealer, will pull no punches as he shapes you into the instrument of his revenge.

The table has changed, but the stakes remain the same: life or death!

KEY GAME FEATURES


  • A world transformed - 100 years have passed since the Dealer was usurped and the Game of Life and Death gained a new master.
  • 22 exciting new challenges that will push your deck-building skills to the limit - Hunt fiendish assassins, reunite star-crossed lovers or build up a fortress to withstand a raider assault!
  • Enlist the aid of all new companion characters - team up with them in battle, or have them bend the rules of the boardgame in your favor!
  • Hundreds of new encounters, artifacts and items to earn and upgrade.
  • Enhanced action-RPG combat - shred foes with quick dual-wielded daggers or brutalize them with heavy two-handed hammers. Build up your combo meter to unleash powerful special attacks!
  • Engage new foes united by all-new card suits - Cross swords with disciplined Imperial soldiers, purge corrupted mutants and fend off northern raiders.
