If, like me, you have no qualms with breezy adventure puzzles and a bubbly narrative, Half Past Fate is a relentlessly sweet and adorable rom-com that charms the heart and soothes the mind.

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.

A charming but ultimately inoffensive rom-com with a funny cast and cute pixel art that any fan of the genre will value.

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.

Overall, Half Past Fate allows players to re-live the bubbling giddiness that comes with new romance. It also easily showcases the joy that comes with the human connection.

Half Past Fate can be an incredibly sweet game, and the way even its minor characters reappear so that you can track how their lives change (or don’t) can be incredibly fulfilling. Rarely, though, the good intentions of characters can cause some of this sweetness to feel a touch contrived and unbelievable. Still, the story comes together in a really nice way, and the game’s simple mechanics rarely get in the way.

Indie games deserve love, too, and Half Past Fate aims to satisfy! Playing through three different scenarios of romantic intent, the player's job is to kindle the passion for six fate-bound individuals. But will it be able to sate one's desire for emotional sublimity?

Do you know how it is to read a really, really good book and you're sad when it ends? When you flip the last page and would like to have the same experience all over again? This is how Half Past Fate works. It's a videogame that feels like a really good novel. For me, it's a nearly perfect experience that I won't ever forget.

Half Past Fate is a sweet, complicated tale, perfect for those who want a few hours of heart and soul and not many puzzles.
