Half Past Fate's laid-back storyline and cute artwork leave you feeling relaxed and fulfilled. If you're looking for a challenge though, you aren't going to find it here. If you're new to the genre, it's a nice way to get a feel for the style without getting overwhelmed by dozens of buttons, options and paths to follow.

Ultimately, Half Past Fate is a game about walking and talking for a few hours. Optional Achievement hunting can extend the game's length if you so choose, but this is without a doubt an interactive movie with some gameplay tossed in to glue plot segments together. Your general predilections as a person will ultimately dictate if that's worth the price point. Nonetheless, with its gorgeous art, energetic soundtrack, and breezy narrative, Half Past Fate just exudes positivity from top to bottom. That should count for something.

You’ll genuinely want to explore every nook and cranny of the various environments too, because Half Past Fate looks stunning. It’s a perfect blend of 2D sprites and 3D environments, and everything from the character models to the tiny cups of coffee burst with personality - it’s one of the most beautiful pixel art games we’ve seen in a good while.

Half Past Fate is certain to appeal to fans of romantic comedies who enjoy funny stories. While the game is rather short and sometimes it doesn't provide enough leads, the game's original concept and visual presentation help it create its own space. It's less clear if it will be enough to convince the wider audience who might not be easily swayed by its assets and simple gameplay.
