Trapped in an ancient forest, a young prince searches for a lost god. Here he befriends the spirit of a young girl and a volatile child, and they quickly find their destinies intertwined.

Players control all three protagonists as they explore an overgrown fantasy landscape, meet its strange and wonderful inhabitants, and overcome the ancient magic and puzzles protecting it. All this is wrapped in an interactive, non-linear story that challenges allegiances and true intentions.

Warden is a third-person action-adventure game inspired by the genre classics of the N64-era.

In order to survive and bring balance to the forest, your combat, platforming and puzzle-solving skills will be put to the test!

The Team

Warden was created by Cardboard Keep, a studio of just three people (located in Canberra, the capital of Australia), collaborating with a network of contributors both local and on the other side of the globe.

Development spanned 30 months from conception to release, and continues today as we release updates and bring Warden to even more platforms!

Cardboard Keep has since released two more games on Steam, cute casual puzzler Puzzle Puppers and quick-play turn based strategy Attrition: Tactical Fronts.
