Windy Meadow spins off of Roadwarden this year
Windy Meadow – A Roadwarden Tale, the sequel to Moral Anxiety Studio’s 2022 narrative adventure Roadwarden, has been unveiled by Assemble Entertainment. Instead of being a direct successor or spinoff, Windy Meadow calls itself a “counterpart” to Roadwarden.
Are you familiar with Roadwarden? I was totally unaware of it. Now that I think about it, I should probably schedule some time to do it. The publisher describes it as a “slice of life” story, in which readers become fully immersed in the daily happenings of a tiny town where every choice has significant consequences.
What intrigues me about this game is that despite being a visual book, essentially all of the text is dialogue. Instead, the images carry the bulk of the burden when it comes to explaining what’s going on. Despite the fact that video games are a visual medium, I’ve noticed that static pictures are typically used to convey the story. That’s why I think it would be interesting to try out.
The story, according to the publisher, “seamlessly weaves cosiness and melancholy,” which is how I’d characterise indulging in an Arby’s sandwich while lying in bed. You get to experience the story from the perspectives of three distinct protagonists, each of whom has their own unique arc.
That’s a great description. I plan to buy Roadwarden shortly, but if you like what you hear here better, you can try out a demo beginning today.
The PC version of Windy Meadow – A Roadwarden Tale is scheduled for publication this year.
