Roadwarden boasts charming, fitting art, immersive sound direction, and arguably one of the best-written texts in RPGs, with a particular emphasis on the expressiveness and social and natural richness of its world. The game is highly recommended for any fan of textually focused RPGs and lovers of serious interactive fantasy literature alike.

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.

Packed with some of the best writing of 2022, Roadwarden’s story will grip you right from the start. Take your time, read all the entries and get lost in its beautiful and desolate world. It’s the perfect blend of RPG, adventure and visual novel that can stand it on its own against some of the best games of the last 10 years.
