Play OverviewPlay Overview

Lost in Random (2021) is an adventure where you play an anthropomorphic dice and a young girl called Even. In her world, when she turns 12 she must roll a magical die to be assigned a region to live in and a life to live. But seeing her sister go through this she escapes to go and look for her. Along the way she meets her dice counterpart and the adventure really begins.

The dice and chance elements introduce a little board game tactics to the action combat, in what is a beautiful-looking game with Tim Burton-style animation reminiscent of the film Coraline. You play through six numerically distinct kingdoms. In Two Town, for instance, everyone has two personalities. In Three Town, a set of triplets are locked in a civil war against each other.

Characters are all interactive and fully voiced, to create a living breathing gothic fairy tale. It's a coming-of-age story in a world where minimising risk has become the norm. After events that change your young life forever, your job is to accept randomness and the flow of events and roll with those punches rather than flail against them.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 12 for moderate violence. Violence during gameplay involves human and fantasy characters striking each other using weapons and magic. Reactions are unrealistic, with blows resulting in characters grunting and flinching, accompanied by flashing effects. When defeated, characters fall over and disappear. There is no blood or injury detail. Cinematic scenes feature more moderate violence, including characters being pushed off ledges, picked up and thrown or slammed around. Again, there is no blood or injury detail.

Rated for younger players in the US. Rated ESRB EVERYONE 10+ for Fantasy Violence, Language, and Use of Alcohol. Players explore environments, interact with characters, and battle an evil queen and her minions. Players select moves/weapons from cards and engage in melee or ranged combat with other enemies. Weapons include arrows, swords, spears, and maces; characters emit small cries when struck or release jewels when defeated. In one sequence, a character named Otto Pint is depicted hiccupping and slurring his speech. The words “*!@?*” and “bada*s” can be heard in the dialogue.

Skill Level

9+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content. Younger players need to be able to deal with the card-and-dice combat that can be quite hectic. The story also needs some good comprehension skills to follow, and adds a lot to the game.
