A Decision-Based Narrative Adventure That Seamlessly Weaves Coziness and Melancholy
Wiesbaden, Germany – March 30, 2023 – The award-winning storyworld of Roadwarden is officially expanding as was announced today by indie publisher Assemble Entertainment and solo developer Moral Anxiety Studio. Coming later this year to Windows PC, Mac, and Linux, Windy Meadow – A Roadwarden Tale invites players on a familiar-yet-new ‘slice of life’ adventure where every decision matters on the quest to forge a noble path. An official counterpart to acclaimed text-based RPG Roadwarden, and a remastered re-release, Windy Meadow is another beautifully written, engrossing entry in a bold, distinct world.
Players can jump into the world of Windy Meadow starting today via a first-ever trailer and demo on Itch.io, with an official Steam demo coming later in April: https://assemble-

Featuring a multitude of hand-crafted characters and a richly detailed village in a fantasy setting set in the Roadwarden storyworld, Windy Meadow – A Roadwarden Tale fully submerges players in the day-to-day goings on of this small community. With animated character sprites taking part in heart-warming and sometimes dramatic scenes, set to a soaring and atmospheric musical score, this is a full and complete visual novel that has been crafted with care by the developer.
Over the course of three interwoven stories, players will be introduced to protagonists Vena, Fabel, and Ludicia, three citizens of the sleepy and serene village Windy Meadow, as they navigate grand life choices regarding their futures.
Will talented huntress Vena depart the harmonious but harmless village and leave her family behind in pursuit of riches with a merchant guild? Can Fabel finally embrace his talents, ditching the figurative shackles of his difficult past as he chases his dream of becoming a famous bard? And will outsider and herbalist Iudicia take hold of her love life, choosing not to marry a man she doesn’t really love at the risk of leading a lonely future?
In this immersive story where choices matter and can affect dialogue, events, how NPCs perceive the protagonists, and how their tale ends, players will have to think very carefully about each path they take.
Windy Meadow – A Roadwarden Tale Key Features include:
- A Story Unfolds: Unlike most visual novels, Window Meadow replaces the majority of narration with animated character sprites. More than 99% of the in-game text represents dialogues.
- Three Protagonists: Follow three very different protagonists and uncover their problems, fears, and the challenges they face. Their varying personalities make for interesting and complicated relationships with the multitude of moody side characters.
- Choices Matter: From the seemingly small to the life-changing, choices players make can affect dialogue options, NPC feelings, and game endings.
- (Mostly) Harmonious Living: Enjoy a serene storyworld rich in gorgeous views, gentle rivers, fertile lands, and welcoming forests. In Windy Meadow, even the beasts and dragons tend to keep their distance. But raiders, on the other hand…
Windy Meadow – A Roadwarden Tale will be released on PC via Steam in 2023.
