Roadwarden, a Medieval Questing Text Adventure, Available Now

Award-winning indie publisher Assemble Entertainment and solo developer Moral Anxiety Studio have launched a new game – 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.

A powerful merchant guild has called on your services. It sends you on a journey into the unknown planes of a mysterious peninsula in the hopes of expanding the guild’s influence even further. Explore this place and gather as much information as possible to reveal the area’s secrets. It’s a dangerous task but an equally respectable one. Do you have the courage to meet all the requirements that define a Roadwarden?

Roadwarden is an illustrated text-based RPG. It’s a modern take on classic text-driven choose-your-own-adventure RPGs. Players take on the profession of the titular roadwarden, exploring and changing a hostile, grim realm. Roadwarden’s gameplay is entirely driven by scenarios presented through text, with players making decisions based on events happening around them.

Players have the option to spec the protagonist to be a warrior, mage, or scholar based on what abilities are upgraded.

Roadwarden’s Key Features Include:

  • 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. Play as either as a warrior, mage or scholar and define your character’s traits. You can be 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.
