Wiesbaden, Germany - 12th September 2022 - Adventure calls, waiting for explorers who are up to the task. Today, award-winning indie publisher Assemble Entertainment, along with solo developer Moral Anxiety Studio, launched the isometric text-based RPG Roadwarden. Combining elements of high fantasy with mechanics borrowed from traditional RPGs, visual novels, and adventure games, Roadwarden mixes the familiar with the unexpected in a unique take on text-based interactive fiction.
Listed on Polygon’s “The 17 most exciting video game releases of fall 2022,” Roadwarden is an illustrated text-based RPG in which players take on the profession of the titular roadwarden, exploring and changing a hostile, grim realm. A modern take on classic text-driven choose-your-own-adventure RPGs, Roadwarden’s gameplay is entirely driven by scenarios presented through text, with players making decisions based on events happening around them.
With the option to spec the protagonist to be a warrior, mage, or scholar based on what abilities are upgraded, players will traverse through an enigmatic peninsula to spread the Merchant Guild’s influence. For those who want a taste of the adventure, an official demo is available for download on Steam.
