Build your deck, then fight through it as it comes to life.
Australian #developers Defiant have just launched the Kickstarter for their new game Hand of Fate, which some readers may remember from the show floor at this year’s PAX Australia.
Hand of Fate blends tabletop card #gaming with RPG action, creating what Defiant call a “card-based roguelike” where the randomised cards come to life as dungeons to explore and monsters to also explore (with your sword).

Because you can control how the deck is built prior to each game, you can adjust the sort of game you’d like to experience. It’s all very interesting-looking, but to make it a DRM-free reality, Defiant are looking for $50,000 on Kickstarter. They’ve already raised $4,000, and as little as $15 gets you a copy of the game for Windows, Mac and Linux.
Take a look here — it’s one of the first Official Australian Kickstarters as well, so do your bit for your nation and pledge it up.
