The Legend of Kyrandia: Hand of Fate Trivia (DOS)
Malcolm characterThe Legend of Kyrandia series consists of three installments and unlike many adventure games' sequels they are connected mostly by the Kyrandia land and the life of its inhabitants. The main antagonist, Malcolm, who was defeated in the first part, does not make any substantial appearance in Hand of Fate. The second installment is a sort of a side-track story in which player impersonates into mystic woman Zanthia whose main task is to figure out what is happening with Kyrandia. Malcolm (or rather his stone statue) appears only in the end sequence suggesting that the third installment was on its way.
- After Zanthia meets the Hand on the rainbow bridge, the costume she changes into is the same one worn by Sylvester Stallone in Rambo.
- It has been suggested over on Wikipedia that the game's unusual title may well be a reference to the notorious cult movie (much-beloved of MST3K) Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966).
Version differencesThe game was also released on CD-ROM. This version has full speech throughout the game, although the game is similar to the earlier disk release.
Polish versionCD version of "Hand of Fate" is one of the first names that was fully translated into Polish including voice acting. The version of the game was distributed by IPS Computer Group and was reviewed in Secret Service 18 (November 1994).
