This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Any ideas about Steam Deck support?
I'll be taking mine with me while travelling during September and this would make a perfect game to be on it.

I mean, in all likelihood Proton would run it just fine, but official support goes a long way.

Thanks for asking! I learned this Friday that there actually occurs a bug when using a Steam Deck, specifically - it doesn't notice when the game asks the player to use a keyboard to start writing instructions. I hope I'll get help with this tomorrow or soon after, and I'll let you know when (if) we fix it!

It looks like the game is working fine! We still need to have the Steam crew verify it on their end before they mark the game as Deck-friendly, but my friend with the working machine played for a bit and found no issues.

This is it. My last ScreenshotSaturday before Roadwarden's release. Can't wait to bring you the good news on Thursday!

I estimate it's a 30+ hours campaign, but completionists will spend even more time completing the large, world-changing quests. And since all quests are optional and most of them can be completed with varying outcomes, various players will have a completely different experience, further altered by their character class, personal goals, personality, and the allies they'll choose.

In Roadwarden you can't make everyone happy. There will be sacrifices.

Grave news! Roadwarden's new release date is September 12th!

I apologize to all of you who planned to play it this weekend. We need to polish a few small issues before you can start your adventure.

I'm deeply sorry, but it will be worth the wait!
