Hand of Fate 2 tells the story of the Dealers defeat, return and revenge. As in the original Hand of Fate, adventurers explore a dark fantasy world built from collectible cards distributed by a magical dealer in a meta-board game. Each overturned card reveals trials including third-person combat, high-risk high-reward minigames and Dungeons and Dragons-style decision making.


Hand of Fate 2 is the sequel to Defiant Development's hit title from 2015. The original Hand of Fate has more than 1.9 million downloads across PC, Xbox One and PS4. Hand of Fate was produced through the combined generosity of Screen Australia and more than 1,300 Kickstarter backers. Defiant Development was one of the first Australian developers to find success on Kickstarter, closing out its campaign with over $50,000 in backer funding.
