The lights are on
Hand of Fate, a Kickstarted roguelike card game from developer Defiant Development, is coming to PlayStation 4 and Vita.
In the game, players have a deck with combat, equipment, and chance cards to use in a dungeon layed out out like a board game. The player's cards appear on the board as fully-modeled 3D objects as they fight and collect loot across the board.
The game is planned for PC this year, per its Kickstarter, and then it will come to Sony's consoles. "In theory, yes, you should be able to cross-save," writes Kim Allom, associate producer on the game, but the team is still working out these specifics. The game will not have micro-transactions, but the team is hoping to add content with future DLC. Unfortunately, Allom confirmed that the game will not contain characters from Manos: The Hands of Fate, the movie famous for being absolutely terrible, and the inspiration for this game of the same name.

This game looks really interesting. It's making me happy to see such fascinating indies come to my Playstation platforms. I love card games and I have always had ideas for a game like this, so I can't wait to see how it all comes together!
My vita was just dealt a winning hand. This is now on my wish list.
I definitely want to try this game.
It's Richard from the LFG comic!
Hm, this does look interesting.
I propose a moratorium on the word "Rougelike". It's being used to describe just about every game with perma-death. Does anyone even remember "Rouge"?
This game actually surprised me. It can get frustrating but for a free to play (an excellent use of the model used in WoT btw)it is upper tier.
