Game Review

Fate: Gates of Dawn is a first-person RPG created by reLINE for the Amiga and Atari ST in 1991.

In terms of gameplay, Fate is similar to Dungeon Master and Eye of the Beholder: this means exploration of the world happens in pseudo-3D, with fixed directions. You can build your party with different characters, but only four of them can be active at any point. You will manage them with the portraits you can see on the screen.

But Fate is not just another dungeon-crawler: it's a game with a complex storyline and puzzles that must be solved talking with the many NPCs that inhabit the world. Plenty of different races, classes, spells, weapons, cities to explore makes the experience very deep. Consider that inventory management plays a vital role because every object has a weight. Night/day cycles, various weather conditions, and graphics that probably are not exactly state-of-the-art (but still can be considered very good) make Fate one of the best computer role-playing experience you can have on an Amiga.

It's a pity that reLINE was closed just after the English version of the game, which makes this game one of the rarest Amiga titles ever. If you own a copy of it, consider yourself lucky.

The best RPG ever ... I remember when I would find some rare and expensive equipment in the wilderness, I would jump out of the chair, happy as never before. Vast world, mysterious encounters, lots of NPC's to join the party and a lot of ways to avoid a battle, makes this game one of a kind and a must play for every RPG and open world fan.
