Swedish studio Zoink’s gothic fairytale Lost in Random has rolled a 10th September release date, alongside a new gameplay trailer. You can check out the Tim Burton-inspired title above, which should help you to get a better grasp of its “explosive dice battles, time-freezing tactics, and various abilities and spells”.

“Ruled by a wicked Queen, the Kingdom of Random is divided into six shadowy realms where life is dictated by a cursed black dice,” the blurb reads. “Journeying as Even, players will walk the land’s mysterious cobbled streets, meet its unpredictable residents and take on courageous quests in order to save her sister, Odd, from Her Majesty’s clutches.”

It continues: “Along the way, they’ll team up with Dicey, a small and strange living dice, and together uncover an age-old tale with a surprisingly modern message not typically explored in gaming: randomness in the world isn’t something to be feared or controlled, but a power that can be harnessed by embracing it and learning to roll with its punches.”

Deep. The game really has a lot of personality, and it’s great to see these more imaginative projects coming out of EA of late. It’s due out on both PlayStation 5 and PS4, but what are the odds of you picking it up?
