Already very popular over on Steam, narrative-driven cyberpunk isometric rogue-like Leap of Fate is now available to download from the App Store. Developed by Montreal-based husband-and-wife team Clever-Plays, the game sees the player taking on the role of a modern-day technomancer in New York City, who shadow-walks through hordes of enemies and blasts them with powerful spells.
Gameplay is a mixture of hack-and-slash combat and rogue-like action, as well as card mechanics, with the latter coming into play when during your adventure you must engage the Deck of Fate, a magical tarot deck that turns your face into a twisted version of your existence.
“With Leap of Fate we wanted to make a fresh roguelike with more narrative substance”, said Mattieu Bégin, lead developer of Clever-Plays.“There’s no main evil guy to defeat, it’s about overcoming your own fears, discovering your own fate. For me, it’s the culmination of a decades-long journey, from making tabletop RPGs and board games as a child to running an independent games studio today. We’re so excited to release our debut game and can’t wait to see which of the four playable characters is the most popular. There’s some strong discussion online already!”
Here are some of the game’s key features:
· Super fast skill-based action with emphasis on high mobility
· The cards of the Deck of Fate define a unique journey for you every game
· A dark cyberpunk setting, spanning cybernetics labs to secret societies
It’s easy to see why Leap of Fate is already so popular on Steam, where it currently has 95% positive reviews.
