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, different weather conditions, and graphics that probably is not state-of-the-art, but still can be considered very good, makes Fate one the best computer role-playing experience you can have on an Amiga.

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