Artificial Intelligence fantasy RPG smashes Kickstarter goals
TORONTO, CANADA - October 17, 2019- UDX Interactive’s debut artificial intelligence RPG Wheel of Fate has completed its Kickstarter today surpassing its goal by over $10,000 CAD. The campaign's goal of $25,000 CAD was funded in less than 24 hours of its launch and has since been backed by over 300 fans.
Backers of the title on Kickstarter gained access to rewards which ranged from a copy of the game at launch and early beta access to merchandised products as well as a studio visit with the team. With a focus on each playthrough being drastically different from the next, Wheel of Fate's AI system actively adapts for player choices.
Set in the fantasy world of Kismet Falls players in Wheel of Fate are tasked with defending the region from the Fateless.

Featuring strategic turn-based combat and the game’s unique Active Response Battle system (ARBs) players are able to use billions of gear combinations and are given the freedom to customize the region’s buildings, craft weapons, as well as armor to protect themselves and explore procedurally-generated dungeons.

About Wheel of Fate
Some people call it luck; others call it destiny. But on the world of Providence, Fate's presence was felt everywhere. Fate is the central force that combines Creation, Destruction and Change; which brought the universe into existence. That is until the Affliction appeared. Born out of people's disbelief, the Affliction cut off living beings from Fate's influence, turning them Fateless. The Fateless were defeated in the Zodiac War, but the world was cut off from Fate's influence as the Temple, the Wheel and the Avatar of Fate vanished into thin air.
One thousand years later, Fate, the Zodiac War and the Fateless are nothing but legends, mostly forgotten. But when a lone adventurer reawakens the Wheel of Fate, the legends of old become true. The nearby village of Kismet's Fall becomes the center of the world as all the races of Providence converge on the sleepy backwater. The Fateless are poised to reclaim the world that had evaded their grasp. All the stands between them and victory is the adventurer, also the protector of Kismet's Fall as well as the Avatar of Fate.
