Roadwarden, one of the best modern text-adventures around is out now

By - | Views: 16,919

For anyone who considers themselves even a remote fan of text-adventures, you should definitely take a look at Roadwarden. Developed by Moral Anxiety Studio, a solo development operation from Poland, and published by Assemble Entertainment.

This is a fully illustrated text-based RPG where you explore a changing and often hostile realm. A beautiful modern take on a genre that not many developers dare to enter these days. It's entirely driven by various scenarios presented through the text, with you making decisions based on how you wish to play. Choices really do matter here and you get to choose to spec your character between a number of professions including warrior, mage, or scholar based on what abilities are upgraded and it will affect what you can do.

I picked this game up for the artwork alone. But I also really like text adventures. Also, I really liked the demo, so there was no hesitation picking the full game up now.

Bought it on day 1, it great so far.

It would be nice to have it in other languages though, but I understand that would be a lot of work.
