Half Past Fate: Romantic Distancing

Publisher Way Down Deep and developer Serenity Forge have announced dating simulation game Half Past Fate: Romantic Distancing for PC. It will launch via Steam on February 14.

Here is an overview of the game, via Way Down Deep:


After sparks fly on their first encounter, a pandemic-induced lockdown turns Robin and Stephen’s budding romance into a star-crossed story! Follow along as they cope with both their own circumstances and the struggles of staying connected online! Will their love be loud and clear, or will their signals fade away?

Half Past Fate: Romantic Distancing speaks to the contemporary difficulty of staying connected with one another, as well as the struggle that comes with a prolonged isolation. Despite these challenges, though, it also speaks to the determination in people to stay involved in each other’s lives, however possible.

Like the first Half Past Fate, in Romantic Distancing, you experience a story of serendipity; that through the sheer happenstances of life, a budding romance can occur, and even flourish.

Key Features

  • Make impactful choices that direct the story as you connect with one another.
  • Follow a familiar, but heartfelt story of people coping with circumstances.
  • Enjoy the iconic 2.5D pixel art style that is the hallmark of Half Past Fate.
  • Listen to a cute, catchy chiptune soundtrack.
