You guard travellers, connect isolated villages, support merchants, and repel attacking creatures, bandits, or even undead.

    Explore this world and gather as much information as possible to reveal the secrets surrounding the area. It's a dangerous task, but an equally respectable one.

    Roadwarden is a fascinating take on the RPG genre that has a lot to love. Its setting is deep and well fleshed out, and the interactions players have with it are impactful and fun to navigate. The stories it tells are often somber but handled in an undeniably human and engaging way. While anyone who doesn’t like reading will want to skip it, I cannot recommend it enough to players intrigued by the possibilities of a detailed, text-based RPG.

    An atmospheric and compelling text-only role-playing game, with a realistic approach to survival and building relationships – where every action and failure comes with lasting consequences.

    A beautifully structured, rich and thoughtful adventure with gentle but decisive RPG elements. [Eurogamer Essential]
  2. So much of what I enjoyed about Roadwarden was its unknowability. You’re a traveller in the peninsula for a little over a month, and it reflects that. You can’t fix every problem, you can’t make everyone happy, and you can’t know everything there is to know. Instead, you take in as much of it as you can, try to improve people’s lots slightly, and leave with a journal full of questions and sense memories.

    Great story telling. Meaningful choices. Really close to a tabletop role-play game. Love it.
