Defiant previously saw Kickstarter success, when it launched a campaign in 2013 for Hand of Fate. The console and PC video game combined tabletop storytelling, with collectible card-game deck building and real-time melee combat. For more information about the game, you can visit the official site.
Hand of Fate: Ordeals will give fans of the video game the opportunity to experience the game in a new way. It offers an adventure card game for one to four players, that can be played in both competitive and cooperative game modes.
Surprisingly, the campaign has only one reward tier to choose from, a $59 USD tier that will include the board game, a Kickstarter exclusive Kallas idol figure, the Hand of Fate video game for Steam, as well as all extras unlocked via its stretch goals. Each game box will include the game board, plastic miniatures, players’ boards, food tokens, wooden player discs, usage crystals, shard tokens, over 300 cards, a fully illustrated rulebook, custom box insert, and quest cards for co-op games.
Having launched earlier today, the campaign has already reached its initial goal of $22,324, hitting its mark in a little under six hours, with 30 days still to go. Currently the total sits just over $44,000, with over 700 backers, at the time of this post. (Time being 11:22pm EST on the 22nd of May.) Three stretch goals have been revealed, with totals of $50,000 for a new enemy (Goblin), $60,000 for a new encounter, and $70,000 for a new encounter (Traps).
