Yes, that makes sense :) And is something I like generally - there's surprisingly little by way of actual littoral-based cultures and life in fantasy, worlds are often presented as "here are countries made of land, there are ports that you go to to get from one country to another and that's that".
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

An updated title screen. : )

When you ignore all the marauding beasts, ruins, dark bogs, and treacherous power-hungry leaders, #Roadwarden is actually cottagecore.
(don't ignore them, though, they're cool)

I’m preparing the next version of the demo. Not only I second-draft all the oldest areas, I also introduce new systems for the player to use them to their advantage, as well as new interactions, choices, obstacles, and visuals. It’s insane how much this game grows, and I’ll share more news very soon.

I do love how effectively you're now making use of the limited colour palette. It looks great!

Thank you! I feel like the last one is a bit out-of-style as it's very "blurry", but considering the theme of this place I hope it's excusable. (Personally, I love how it turned out.)

The huge demo update is on its way, with new mechanics, updated dialogues, redrawn illustrations, better UI... The game is now slightly more complex, and I think it gets better at building the experience of being a traveler in a hostile realm.

Here are some examples!
