Threads of Fate

Threads of Fate
Developer - Square Product Development Division 3
Publisher - Square Electronic Arts
Release date – July 19, 2000

Threads of Fate is a 1999 action platform video game developed and published by Square (now Square Enix) for the PlayStation console.
Threads of Fate revolves around two characters, Rue and Mint, and their quest for a mystical object known only as "the Relic" that has the power to profoundly alter their lives.


The two protagonists, Rue and Mint, both desire the Dewprism for different reasons; Rue wants to revive his dead friend Claire, while Mint, a princess, wanted to reclaim her right to the throne from her sister Maya.


The game gives the player a choice between Rue, an amnesiac boy who is searching for his missing friend, and Mint, a bratty and hyperactive girl who wants to be a princess and control the world, as they search for the Dewprism, which is an artifact that can grant wishes. Rue's story is more somber and serious, whereas Mint's emphasizes humor. Each character has different attacks and transformations.


The music of Threads of Fate is composed by Junya Nakano, who has worked on several other games for Square. Hidenori Iwasaki did the score's synthesizer programming. A soundtrack was released in Japan (titled Dewprism OST) and was available via import for several years in other countries. The soundtrack, though discontinued and out of print, was recently given a re-print in August 2006.
