Leap of Fate
New York, present day. A rogue occultist must undergo a deadly rite of passage, forcing him to face his own demons and choose his fate.
LEAP OF FATE is a hardcore action game in which you play a powerful mage facing a twisted version of reality. Do you have the skills needed to survive the trials, and forge yourself a new fate?
LEAP OF FATE features
- A modern, dystopian fantasy with multiple alternate endings
- Fast-paced action that will test your skills to the limit
- A large pool of magical abilities that can be combined in countless ways
- Randomly-generated levels and upgrades
LEAP OF FATE’s action is fast, skillful, and unforgiving. You only have one life to progress as far as you can in a session, and since there is no automatic health regeneration, damage must be avoided at all costs.
Surviving requires good positioning, effective offense, and finding a way to abuse whatever combination of magical abilities you happen to have upgraded in that session.
New York city, present day. Unbeknownst to the average man, and hiding in the shadows of the city, are those who can manipulate the very fabric of reality. These mages, sometimes known as cabalists, technomancers, or illuminati, use their extraordinary abilities to further the goals of their secret societies, often pulling strings from behind the scenes. But power comes at a terrible price and forever alters the fate of those wielding it.
In LEAP OF FATE, you play a fugitive mage who heeds the call of an arcane temple hidden within the city. Through this lethal rite of passage, you will face countless challenges while growing your magical abilities. If you survive, you will forge yourself a new fate. But what if life was not one path, but rather a branching tree leading to different futures; would you be tempted to explore them all?
In LEAP OF FATE, every play session provides you with randomly generated ways to grow your magic. There are four aspects to a mage’s powers
- Shadow walk
- Arcane bolts
- Glyphs of power
Each of those includes 25 upgrades, for a total of 100 distinct magical powers which can be combined in an enormous amount of ways, some more degenerately powerful than others. Believe us, you’ll need all that power.
The Crucible of Fates is an arcane temple hidden within New York city. It calls mages to it, and tests them to learn if they are worthy of a greater Fate. To do so, the Crucible digs deep into these mages' heads and makes them face twisted versions of their own fears.
In this game, you draw from the Deck of Fate to randomly generate a series of trials. No two sessions are the same, as you'll find different levels, enemies, loot and magical powers each time.
In LEAP OF FATE, each playable character is associated with a series of alternate endings, called fates. How well you perform and what powers you use are all factors that will forge your fate. Do you have the skills necessary to unlock them all?
