You are an adventurer seeking fame and fortune. Now you have finally arrived at the town of Grove to test your abilities. Here at the town of Grove lies the Dungeon Gate filled with monsters and with it comes fame and fortune. However, you have come for a more noble cause. At its deepest dungeons lies a more powerful monster that beckons you to answer its challenge. Will you rise to the challenge and answer your fate?

Fate introduces an action-heavy RPG style of play similar to Diablo, from its combat gameplay to character information. An additional feature in this game is the existence of your pet companion which acts like a body guard that may be leveled up and equipped with items.

Gameplay consists of completing sub-quests (there are no main quests) where completing those quests will provide you with items, money, and fame. Character development is also prominent. There are no classes in the game, however there are skills specialization which may be upgraded to your own choosing. Internet access is required to fully unlock the game.
