The adventure game Lost in Random (which was inspired by Tim Burton), will be available much sooner than expected. As revealed during EA Play Live, its release date is set for September 10th. The basic premise of Lost in Random is you must travel to six different realms based on the sides of a die to uncover the secrets of Random.
The protagonist, named Even, has one goal–to save her sister, Odd. She gets help from a living die who she names Dicey. His abilities aid Even throughout her journey, and you’ll need to use his powers when facing the game’s ghoulish adversaries. Of course, this isn’t meant to be a horror-themed game, more along the lines of The Nightmare Before Christmas or Corpse Bride. Developer Zoink did a great job creating a similar feeling atmosphere.
You’ll use cards in combat, set traps, or summon weapons that can deal tremendous damage. You can also summon healing spells and shields. Dicey can even be used as a literal timebomb.
Lost in Random will release for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. The PC version will be available to purchase from both Origin and Steam. This is the ninth game in the EA Originals lineup, following games like Knockout City, It Takes Two, Unravel, and Fe–the latter which was also created by Zoink.
