Ski Safari Developer Takes on Hearthstone with Hand of Fate

Defiant Development are edging closer to the release of their card battling game Hand of Fate - set to release on PC, Mac, Linux, PS4 and PS Vita in the not too distant future. While iOS was not listed on the announced formats, we reached out to Defiant about the potential of a port to the format on which it has made such a name for itself - when asked if a port to iOS is coming in the future, we got the following reply from director Morgan Jaffit:

"The answer to that is a tentative yes. We built the game for a controller, but we're also very familiar with the way mobile goes together and have a lot of thoughts as to how to make it work. Definitely a decent ways after our initial release on PC/Mac/Linux/PS4/Vita though."

The Australian based developer is none other than the creator of a successful little iOS auto-runner called Ski Safari. The constantly avalanche-challenged adventures of Sven brought Defiant Development to the world's attention just over two years ago. Since then they've also released Heroes Call, a quality barrel breaking action-RPG which you can download here for free. 

Defiant's successfully funded kickstarter campaign will see Hand of Fate on show at PAX East, with a release soon to follow. 

The card-battling genre is really heating up at the moment with Blizzard Entertainment just soft-launching Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft in select markets - click here to see if you are in luck.

Check out Defiant's back-catalogue below, and also a trailer for Heroes Call. We'll leave you with this final question to ponder, and maybe you can leave your theories in our various social feeds - Why do game developers hate barrels so much?
