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.
- Explore & Change the World: Discover the secrets and face the challenges of a hostile fantasy world — inevitably unveiling its uniquely sinister history.
- Grow With the Challenge: Create your own background story, personal abilities, beliefs, and personality to shape your very own future as a Roadwarden.
- Classical RPG Attitude: 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.
- Mysteries Unfold: 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 sidequests with dozens of NPCs to gain their trust and support.
Honestly this is a beautiful gem of a game that deserves to be played.
