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.

I’m glad I took some time to return to the very beginning of Roadwarden. So many changes throughout the entire prologue section, but I still like the first paragraph.

Hi there! I have a whole bunch of screenshots to show, they would turn this thread into a scrollfest... Please take a look at them here!

Oh damn, thank you for sharing the link with me. Too bad I didn't update the demo in a year, but I'm glad that the folks are still finding it fine enough. So far, 2021 has been really good for the game.

Very cool undertaking. I love the art style and atmosphere the game seems to have.
What are you creating this in? It almost looks like Renpy to me, but I am not sure.

It's Ren'Py indeed! The gameplay screenshots kind of hide it, but the menu screen is full mask-off. : ) As there are no real-time action sequences in the game, using a text-focused engine serves me well. I now understand how to use it way better than I did two years ago, but I'm still not a programmer.

Very nice. I've actually been thinking about using Renpy myself for some projects. My problem is the exact opposite: I'm pretty technically savvy and I've used Renpy before, but I always end up wanting features I'd get in something like Unity. But the drawback of the latter is it's a lot more work to get off the ground successfully with the core features Renpy supports.

One of these days...

There's also value in appreciating a tool's limitations. : )

A fistful of icons - 6 of the newer items and a reminder how does the inventory look like in the game. : ) Quite happy with the current style!
