About This Game

“The Warden” is a first-person psychological-horror game with puzzles .
Ephram Elias Barkley is a landowner who , after losing his family , lives his life in a alcoholic loneliness .
His life is interspersed with moments of lucidity and states of trance that seem to leave, as only trace, mysterious drawings of dark landscapes in which stands a big figure with deers horns…


"Was always the same picture... a landscape with a river and a forest. The only difference was that the black figure seemed to be getting closer.
Each time it was as if it had been drawed closer. Its outlines became lighter, and I glimpsed some horns, that I thought looked like deer's horns, on its head...
From then on my memories fade and my mind starts to waver."

-No FOV settings
-No mouse sensitivity option (using a razer is like doing a 180° on every hand movement)
-No pad (which i dont care anyway, just writing it because i could play from far to avoid feeling sick)
-To interact you need to grab and move the item from a VERY close range.
-Overheating issues on nvidia780 playing on medium/high settings and having a very bad graphic quality (probably 10 years old game like)
-No buttons remapping


+ I can choose which monitor will run the game at startup

Refunded.

Please I'm begging you, don't buy this game. I have a high end computer capable of running far cry primal on its highest graphical settings but yet I cant even play this garbage on low. No settings are availbe, it was not testing. I really love horror games and really though this one was going to be a gem, but it's utter trash. Please don't buy this game it is such a waste of money. I want my money refunded, not because I want my money back but because I really feel that this "game studio" reallly needs to fail. They did a bad job, plain and simple. I was walking in a room and i neded up stuck inside a dresser....... its not even supposed to be an accessible part of the game! very frustrating. The only way way id give these guys a pass is if they were deaf dumb and blind.

You can't invert your look controls, there's no controller support, you can't adjust mouse speed, it doesn't save your graphical options, it looks and runs like trash... It's just bad all around. The controls are physics based, so you essentially have to run into or away from something to interact with it. Try to just use the mouse and the object will just judder around.
The positive reviews are from pre-release.
Really and truly awful. Refunded.

Love this game! It seems to be just the right amount of Jump scare tied with puzzle solving. I Have hit a part in the game where I feel stumped but know i just need to keep going.

I have not seen any major bugs and have been able to fully enjoy the game. There was a game crash at a particular point but it has since been fixed.

If you like to jump now and then while having to think logically at time I would suggest you give this game a try.

This game is awesome! At the beginning you just wander around the house, the atmosphere is quite but after it will genuinely scare you to death giving you heart attacks one after the other!! It's a good fun and totally worth the money.
