Featuring an isometric pixel art style and classic RPG elements, Roadwarden takes the fun of text-based adventures and adds to it visual novel staples to create an original adventuring experience.
Players take control of a roaming adventurer, messenger, and general-purpose hero in a dangerous and magical world. As the story begins, a powerful merchant guild requests the player’s services, sending them on a journey to a mysterious peninsula to expand the guild’s influence. The job is dangerous, but also promises the chance to change the world.
Roadwarden sends players out into the wilds, asking them to accept the challenge in order to live up to their promise made to guard travelers, connect alienated villages, support weary merchants, and repel attacking creatures — including bandits and the undead.
- Explore & Change the World: Discover the secrets and face the challenges of a hostile fantasy world — inevitably unveiling its uniquely sinister history
- Grow With the Challenge: Create your own background story, personal abilities, beliefs, and personality to shape your very own future as a Roadwarden
- Classical RPG Attitude: Prepare yourself for an epic journey, either as a warrior, mage or scholar, and define your character‘s traits; like friendly, playful or intimidating, during interactions with various NPCs
- Mysteries Unfold: Use your savvy and wiles when investigating and drawing your conclusions to understand the true nature of this world. Immerse yourself in detailed dialogues and sidequests with dozens of NPCs to gain their trust and support.
Roadwarden, developed by Moral Anxiety Studio, arrives on Windows, Mac, and Linux via Steam and other digital platforms in 2020.
