We’re all mad down here.
Lost in Random feels like the sort of game that would have come out 15 years ago. That’s not to say it feels dated, not at all, but instead it comes from an era where developers took risks with unique and interesting IPs.

Everything about the game comes with a Tim Burton feel. Despite this, it always has its own identity, never once feeling like a carbon copy of the director’s past works.

The children in Random are all expected to roll a dice when they reach the age of 12, to determine which of the six lands they’ll belong to.
