Those who think they have the odds in their favor should try Lost in Random. This gothic fairytale-inspired action-adventure has the fate of each citizen determined by none other than the roll of a dice. It’s coming out on September 10.

The game takes place in the Kingdom of Random ruled by a wicked Queen. The kingdom is divided into six shadowy realms, and in each one, life is dictated by cursed black dice. Players take on the role of Even, who is on a quest to save her sister Odd. Along the way, players get to team up with a small and strange living dice known as Dicey. One lesson that the game hopes to teach is that randomness shouldn’t be controlled or feared. Instead, it’s a power that should be harnessed.

The story is written by Ryan North, the same author who wrote Adventure Time and The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl.

Talking about the game, Lost in Random Creative Director and Lead Writer Olov Redmalm shared that when they first worked on the game, they knew they wanted something fairytale-like but a bit darker. The game is being developed by Zoink, known for the likes of The Kore Gang and Zombie Vikings.

He went on to say that one of the difficulties in the development was the gameplay. Redmalm revealed that they wanted it to be related to dice and had to decide what was too random and what was considered as random enough.

Features of the game include:

  • Uncover a twisted fairy tale.
    • Journey into a wonderland where you travel across six twisted realms, with each one having its own rules.
    • Help the unpredictable inhabitants and save your sister.
  • Roll with it in epic, tactical dice battles.
    • Try a unique mix of tactical combat and card collection.
    • Adapt battle strategy on the fly within evolving board game arenas.
  • Defy your fate against all odds
    • Harness the power of randomness.
    • Team up with friend Dicey to play the odds.
    • The course of battle can be changed with a dice roll.

Lost in Random is available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch.
