Linux PC Windows Mac OS

Roadwarden is a text-adventure set in a downbeat fantasy world of magic, monsters, and grinding poverty. As a newly minted roadwarden, you are tasked with patrolling the highways and byways of a peninsula while also exploring its commercial possibilities for your mysterious paymasters. You have to manage your time carefully to get everything done in the 40 days before autumn sets in.


What we like:
  • Unique take on text adventuring
  • Choices that really matter and an organic sense of muddling through that feels lifelike
  • Nuanced and low-key atmosphere
What could be improved:
  • Depending on choices things can feel relentlessly downbeat
  • Lack of quest tracker can seem perverse
  • Very text heavy and not suitable for those who aren't into reading or plot
