Roadwarden is a fantasy RPG that’s all about the text; to release in 2020

Isometric pixel art and a dose of literature combine in Roadwarden, a text-based RPG set in a fantasy universe. It’s coming out in late 2020.

German adventure game publisher Assemble Entertainment has announced that it will be publishing Roadwarden, an RPG that takes after decades-old classics. It shuns fancy graphics and instead tosses isometric pixel art at you, which itself sets the stage for what is a very wordy fantasy adventure.

Here’s what it’s all about:

You are a Roadwarden, a brave stranger putting his life in danger to make a difference in this grim world. While most people would never risk a solitary journey through the wilder parts of the land, you – as a Roadwarden – willingly accept the struggle to live up to your promise to guard travellers, connect isolated villages, support merchants and repel attacking creatures, bandits or even undead.

Roadwarden is an illustrated text-based RPG that uses isometric pixel art and combines mechanics borrowed from RPGs, Visual Novels, adventure games and interactive fiction such as inventory puzzles, dialogue choices, character abilities and development, hit points and other resources, simple survival mechanics as well as quests restricted by in-game time.

Have a look at the trailer here:

Roadwarden is being designed by one-man Polish dev Moral Anxiety Studio. The game is scheduled for a September 2020 release across PC, Mac, and Linux.

For more information on Roadwarden, check out the official website here, and the Steam page here. There’s a demo for the game over at the official website, if you’d like to get a taste of what the game is like in its current stage of development.

You can also wishlist the game on the Steam page if you’re interested, which should help the developer with the game’s exposure.
