Hand of Fate’s development team has successfully wooed David Goldfarb, best known for Payday 2 and Battlefield 3, into serving as a guest designer.

The Australian card-based rogue like, which is currently at 80% of its goal on Kickstarter, has a couple of other big name designers onboard in addition to Goldfarb.

Rob Cunningham, whose credits include Homeworld and Homeworld Shipbreakers has also offered his services, as has Ian Livingstone, one of the industry’s living legends (that’s Eidos boss, Games Workshop co-founder and Fighting Fantasy author, for the rock-dwellers).

All three will design events for Hand of Fate, adding to the pool of available cards.

At time of writing, Hand of Fate requires under $10,000 to meet its $50,000 goal,. and has three days remaining. The deck-building RPG will go into alpha next week with a beta expected in 2014. It’s coming to Mac and PC.
