Roadwarden, the illustrated text-based RPG from Assemble Entertainment and Moral Anxiety Studio is hitting the old dusty trail on September 8th, 2022, coming to Steam with support on Windows PC, Mac, and Linux. Today’s release date announcement is accompanied by an all-new teaser trailer and an official Roadwarden demo now available for download on Steam.
Roadwarden merges elements of high fantasy and medieval adventure and is punctuated by a distinct isometric pixel art style. Combining mechanics borrowed from RPGs, visual novels, and interactive fiction, Roadwarden tells the tale of an explorer hired by a powerful merchant guild, tasked with journeying to a mysterious peninsula to spread the guild’s influence. With over 40 hours of gameplay, dialogue choices that branch into hundreds of thousands of text lines, and progressively upgradable character abilities, Roadwarden is a truly epic and unique adventure experience where no two playthroughs are alike.
Discover the secrets and face the challenges of a hostile fantasy world — inevitably unveiling its uniquely sinister history. Create your own background story, personal abilities, beliefs, and personality to shape your very own future as a roadwarden. 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. 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 side quests with dozens of NPCs to gain their trust and support.
Developed by Moral Anxiety Studio, a solo development operation from Poland, and published by Assemble Entertainment, Roadwarden will launch on Steam for $10.99 USD.
