Play OverviewPlay Overview

Half Past Fate (2020) is a romantic comedy adventure. You explore the lives of six different modern day characters and their romantic relationships over eight hours, eight days, and finally eight years later. It's a point-and-click adventure where you explore the world and solve puzzles using the things you find. Here though, there's also a lot of dialogue and entwining stories that play out like a movie.

Each chapter involves a single character meeting with friends, going on dates and living their lives. You spend your time moving around and engaging in pre-set conversations. It's in the puzzles rather than the character interactions that require your involvement. These involve collecting items or completing actions in a certain order.

The result is an acquired taste, as this is something you experience rather than heavily influenced. With simple cartoon graphics, cute characters and a wholesome vibe, it's a game about these young people and how their individual stories come together, like the movie Love Actually.

This is an Adventure and Communication game with Narrative, Point-and-Click and Puzzle elements. This is a single-player game.


Play Time: This game will take between 4 hours and 5 hours to complete. The length of time to complete the game is twice as long as a movie, but if you have a long train or plane journey ahead, and you have this on Switch it might be a nice diversion to play this through in one session.

Rated PEGI 3.

Skill Level

12+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. With too much dialogue, and the themes of love and relationships is unlikely to appeal to very young children. Those who are interested in this aspect of life, and with a few more years under their belt will enjoy the casual progression and low skill barrier.
