'Lost in Random' Gets Release Date, Shows Off Gameplay - Screens & Trailer

Lost in Random brings a new spin on the fantasy action adventure genre, in a blend of strategy and action that explores the notion of chance and possibility, set within a beautifully dark and vivid world.

Revealed during E3 2019, get ready to play the odds in Lost in Random, a gothic fairytale-inspired action adventure in which you will need to quickly learn how to tip the odds in their favor in a dark wonderland where only the brave survive.

Welcome to the world of Random, a dark kingdom where every citizen’s future is determined by the roll of a dice. Will you be defeated by your fate or embrace chaos and learn to make it work in your favor? Embark on a journey with Even and her sidekick Dicey to play the odds and break the curse of Random.

Ruled by a wicked Queen, the Kingdom of Random is divided into six shadowy realms where life is dictated by a cursed black dice. 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. 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.


“When we first started this project, we knew we wanted to create a fairytale that was a bit darker than what we’ve made in the past; we ended up drawing these different characters and concepts, but it wasn’t until this painting of a girl and her dice appeared that we knew there was something more to explore,” said Olov Redmalm, Creative Director and Lead Writer for Lost in Random, during the EA Originals Spotlight at EA Play Live 2021. “A tricky aspect we had to deal with was determining what the gameplay would be like - we wanted the theme and gameplay to revolve around the dice, but had to consider what was too random and what was just random enough. We feel it’s all grown very naturally out of that central idea.”
Starting today, Lost in Random is available for pre-order on select platforms.

Random rules all in the Kingdom of Random, and this principle is deeply embedded in Lost in Random’s innovative gameplay. Coins are collected that enable Even to learn new attacks, abilities and more - all of which come in handy during unique tactical combat. Players will use Even’s slingshot to attack deadly foes and knock off energy cubes that power Dicey. Once charged, they can roll Dicey to freeze time itself and unleash his powerful magic. Players will need to adapt their battle strategy on the fly within evolving board game arenas in order to defy a cursed fate and truly harness the power of randomness.

Lost in Random is coming to PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC (Origin and Steam) on September 10, 2021.
