Successful Kickstarters of the week! (13th Dec 2013)

It's that time again when we look at the successful Kickstarters of the week, and although we don't have as many as last time, we do have some interesting games to show you that have hit the goal. Games such as Hand of Fate and The Slaughter hit a good target, so it looks as if next year and the year after is going to be full of fun, what with Christmas not being far away.

Game : Hand of Fate
Game Type : Tabletop Card Game
Kickstarter Success : $54,095 pledged of a $50,000 goal
Developer : Defiant Development
Game Info Quote : Hand of Fate is a card based roguelike, in which the player builds a collection of cards into a deck, which is then used to deal out the dungeon floors through which they adventure. Upon entering a combat, all of the cards the player has collected fly into their character's hands as fully modeled 3D assets, and combat begins. A sublime blend of tabletop card gaming and video game magic, inspired by tarot and fantasy, developed by Defiant Development in Brisbane, Australia.
