Intro: Would you like to know what the future holds in store for you? Developed by award-winning creative studio Psyop, Kismet is a collection of three activities, including a past-present-future Tarot Card reading (the Cards), daily Astrology session (the Stars), and ancient board game, Ur (a game of Wit). Kismet is meant to be experienced daily, with unique outcomes every calendar day that are directly tied to not only the cards that you choose, but your individual birth date and the actual alignment of celestial bodies at the time of your reading. Named after the mysterious character at its core, Kismet is inspired by the mystic arts of tarot and astrology, brought to life in a beautifully detailed, handmade, Gothic style.
Review: Are you the type of person who finds themselves regularly reading the daily horoscopes from newspapers or checking what your star sign means for you. Then why not step into Kismets rustic gipsy caravan. Inside you will find Kismet and her cat, always there and happy to read your fortune by tarot cards, tell you what your stars have in store for you today or even just happy to play a game or two with you. With some pretty good graphics, endless outcomes and some pretty spiritual sounds, it’s more of a cool experience than anything else.
Verdict: Kismet isn’t designed to be a replacement for your regular visits to your spiritualist, it’s designed to be a “use once” spiritual reading. Just a little bit of harmless fun. Sure the game can be played over and over and there are loads of cool animated tarot cards to see. But for less than a fiver you get a quick spiritual reading, some amazing graphics and a fun board game to play. But those looking for something more serious in the way of virtual reality spiritualism, you might want to look into the cards and ask when it will happen. Because Kismet is not it.
