I'm playing Rein's route right now but I'm not that far in. I did Otmund first because I got there organically. Rein is less satisfying so far, but only because Otmund is definitely my type (visually and personality wise), and I had too much fun teasing and flustering the grumpy responsible one. I have a thing for the strong, quiet, and grumpy ones. Rein is cute, but I think we would be more awesome friends than anything else. I think we are too similar personality wise, but the difference comes in where I'm too much of a helper (labor oriented) to lounge around while others do the heavy lifting; which is why i wound up on Otmund's route first. Somehow I wound up in a realistic narrative for myself during Otmund's route (whoops): the hardworking and responsible, teasing, flirt, who also gets stuck in role of peacekeeper/mediator XD
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Slaying goblins? Cool. Stealing a dragon's hoard? Sure. Being stuck on a three week long, quiet journey transporting a cart with goods with two squabbling party members? Ehh...
Not that you're complaining – considering everything, the job pays pretty well. And your two companions, Otmund and Rein, well, they can't be all bad, right?
It's up to you in either case. Grow closer over the course of your journey and all its trials and tribulations, or keep your distance.
This game features:
- 50.000+ words that cover 2 storylines
- A character and relationship-driven story inspired by DND
- The option to romance a stoic fighter or a carefree sorcerer
- Scenes, choices and endings dependent on your affinity score with a character
- 9 collectible CGs
- Epilogues for good and bad ends
- Battle music!!!
he/him. 28. 190 cm.
Stoic, stubborn, and the responsible self-appointed “leader” of your little group. If it's not up to his standards, it's Bad, and no, there's no changing his mind. Or is there?
they/them. 26. 175 cm.
Carefree, cheerful and making friends everywhere they go – Rein is the life of the party (ha). Until you try to get too close. Maybe they have a good reason?
I recommend a guideline of players being 16+ for suggestive content and language.
Content warnings: death, injury, fantasy violence, swearing, screenshakes, and a very loud sound.

AH! I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!! I wish there was more! I was so sad when it ended but was so satisfied with both endings! (I can't bring myself to reject them :[) It'd be cool if there was a sequel where you all meet up again and go on another adventure but I won't force ya. Keep up the cool work!
Even tho this will never happen but i actually thought of ending, instead of rein and otmund bad ending, how about mc get a bad end where the mc got pissed at rein and otmund agruing they decided to go on their own without nobody. and then the text will say what happen to us when we left. i know this will never happen, but when i finished the whole game i thought of this.
ong i love this game!!!!! otmund is so cool <3 i noticed that in the gallery there were two pictures that were missing, i completed the 'good' route for both otmund and rein, do i need to complete the 'bad' route to get those?
thank you so much!! <33
yes, those 2 cgs belong to their respective bad ends.
Oh my god, that was so beautiful :'D I love Otmund, he's so lovely, sassy, delightful and so so cute (especially when he is blushing, so adorable xD) I had a wonderful time playing your game, the end was very wholesome (Rein and Otmund were friendly with each other) and Otmund and MC were together :D you did an amazing job!!
Otmund's route is awesome. I feel like you really get to know him as a character and everything flows so smoothly. He grows as an individual and it gives his character depth. His personality is awesome. Rein, on the other hand is not someone I would be friends with irl. Swears too much, a bit bitter and spiteful. But to each their own. I really enjoyed this game and would recommend !
Hands down this is probably my favorite game on here now- OTMUND HAS MY HEARTTT, I was sad when the game ended but then the cute little epilogues omg love love love
I love Otmund, he is so cute and shy, and I feel the empress is also interesting, she makes out Otmund, giving him encouragement, I can't help watching them marrying. Haha, their love is exquisite and warm. By the way, I want to call Rein angel of our team. he is so conscientious.
It's my top 1 game on itch.io. I think I played most of the games here!! Both guys are so well-written characters. You can not love them. I preferred the route of Otmund because you can see how he changes through the game. The main character is also so funny and I love them as much as guys. Thank you for making this game <33
awww geez thank you so much, that’s such an honour!!💖 what a lovely comment,
I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed both of the goofs, thank you for playing! <3
Thank you for your game, I enjoyed it a lot! It was very well written, the dialogue flowed naturally and I felt like I could really get to know Otmund and Rein. The art is great too and you did such a good job of including different sceneries and settings!
The pacing of the relationships (and game overall) was really well done too, it felt very natural progressing. I enjoyed that MC could be honest about their feelings and/or flirty, too! Especially Otmund's reactions made me smile because I could never tell beforehand if he'd brush it off with a smirk or be caught unprepared and started blushing. (pls tell him I blushed too)
I really enjoyed your writing style and will be off to check out your new project now, thank you! ☺️💐
Thank you so much for this kind comment!! <3 I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed the journey with Otmund & Rein. They both adore your blushes too😊❤️
Just finished playing the game and ugh, I love these two to death! both of them are so cute and I loved both of their routes. A poly route with these two would be a blessing~
Aww thanks so much for playing!! 😊 So happy to hear that you enjoyed! I'm so pleasantly surprised by all the enthusiasm for a poly route, haha💓
This was so fun to play! I'm not going to lie. I'm a little bit in love with Otmund.... I just wanna hug him and give him someone to rely on UwU
I loved the teasing and the seductive vs flustered choices. I'm saving Reins' route because after that I'll have played the whole game, and I really like the writing.
Also I can't tell, is there a poly route? Because it *feels* like there's a poly route or there's the right set up for one, but there's only epilogues for mono endings...
thanks so much for playing!! ❤️ Otmund would love a hug😌
a poly route sounds really fun, but I haven't made one! All of Travellers Road was made in 3 months, so unfortunately I had to cut any extra content. definitely food for thought though!
Do you have other plans to make more vns? I loved this one ngl
Oh, I enjoyed Traveller's Road so much, thank you for making and sharing it with us! I loved both Otmund's and Rein's routes, i want to hold both their hands. And I really appreciated that we immediately tease them about them sharing the bed, as it was also my first thought. And being taken care of by our companions and RO when we get hurt? Beautiful, perfect, amazing.
Overall so heart-warming and comfortable (? idk if that's the right word but the feeling is hard to describe) and while I got the bad ends on accident the first time for each route it didn't discourage me from trying again. On a more personal note: your game helped knock me out of a bit of a mire ive been in lately, so thank you again for sharing Rein, Otmund, and Traveller's Road with us. I only wished I had picked it up sooner. <3
what a sweet and thoughtful comment, thank you so much!!;; <33 I'm so happy that you enjoyed TR and that it could be a comfort to you. Otmund & Rein & me wish you a lot of love and positive energy going forward :)
thank you for playing!!
you goal was a growing together, soft but exciting adventure and you achieved that. the writing itself was just like how a DM would speak and the slow growth of the budding relationship with your love interest was so heartwarming. i think my favorite part though was the small note to the reader at the end <3 thank you so much for sharing this game!!
that's such high praise, thank you so much for this incredibly sweet comment!! ;;<3 you've warmed my heart in turn!
ahhh this is the kind of game that makes me wish that i had a man like that :p
you have such a way with words!! your prose is well written and a joy to read. otmund and rein were so precious...even if i have a soft spot for otmund, eheh. i blushed a lot on his route. u_u
i had a lot of fun playing your game uwu
awww thank you so much, that's so sweet!! I'm so glad to hear you had fun, thank you for playing!! <3
Qkayoo, you have absolutely outdone yourself with the complete version!!! WOW. The later scenes are somehow even wittier and more entrancing than in those shown off demo, I was laughing aloud and blushing more than once. As before, I love how you incorporate the characters' backgrounds and insecurities into their behaviors - and you added new backgrounds! And more CGs! (Rein's shirtless dancing CG, be still my heart.) And EPILOGUES. Good and bad epilogues were equally well-written and engaging. You really didn't have to spoil us so much but you DID.
Traveller's Road is comforting and intimate all at once; 10/10 would play a million times more. Thank you for sharing Rein and Otmund with us. I'm truly looking forward to whatever you make next!
Congratulations again on 1k downloads, here's to many, many more.
oh my gosh, wudge, my heart... you always turn me into a happy blushing mush with your incredibly sweet, in-depth reviews. thank you so much dear friend <3
I'm delighted you enjoyed all the effort I put into the game!! comments like these make me feel like all that hard work was worth it. thanks for being so cool and inspiring me!! let's work hard together!!
aaa i said it on twitter but i'll say it again here-- congrats on 1k downloads!! you deserve it, and so much more!
love this so much!!!! just all of it was incredible and so much fun to read. i loved getting to know all the characters and fall in love with both otmund and rein. absolutely incredible!!!
I finally got the time to play this and it was worth every minute! I loved the writing, the pace of the romance, the mood, the visuals- I found myself pausing to admire some aspect or another many times during my playthrough. Otmund has completely stolen my heart, but I can't wait to learn more (and fall for :>) Rein in their route! Amazing work!!
Awww thank you so much for this sweet comment Allie!! I'm so honoured you played my little game <3<3<3
Super happy to hear you enjoyed!!
This game was absolutely beautiful in every aspect, characters, plot, and visuals! I love the little details and the subtleties in the relationships. As much as it pained me I played through to get the bad epilogues for both routes just to have more of this story!
awww hope the good endings made up for the bad ones!! <3 <3 thank you so much, you're so sweet!! so glad to hear you enjoyed!
i am literally shaking , crying and throwing up ! i LOOOOVED the game . Otmund best boi all the way although i love Rein too but ALAS I HAVE A TYPE. The dialogue , the choices given to the mc, the writing, I AM ADAMANTLY ENAMOURED AND EMPHATICALLY CHARMED. You literally had no right to make me run and yell in the hallway . My mom gave me weird looks but i love me an immersive adventuring experience . THANK YOU SO MUCH YOU MADE MY DAY <3
ahhh thank you so much for playing and for this incredibly sweet comment!! this is so wonderful to hear, I hope the game brought you the same delight your words gave me! <3
Wonderful, wonderful game!!! I adore everything about this, absolutely nothing to fault, complete perfect work of art. My god I love Otmund to death, I just want more of him. I love the way he's written, and the writing in general is just *chef's kiss*. Oh you beautiful lovely people, I can't remember the last time I've fallen so in love with a character. Such a brilliant job. Especially love the DnD setting and the art. Exquisite. Can't wait to see what you do next <3
AHH my heart!!! thank you so much <33 Your comment has officially melted me into a puddle. I'm so grateful that you think so highly of TR, makes all the late nights programming worth it!
I really enjoyed the story. Both routes were very cute. <3 I've always thought that given the chance I might have gotten into DND and this game was further proof lol
Aw thank so much!! And yessss that makes me so happy to hear!! <3 DND is so much fun and definitely worth giving it a try!
Otmund kiss me challenge
Amazing, loved the full release! I love your dialogue and writing, and the art fits so perfectly, can't wait for your next project !
I had so much fun playing through! Congrats on the full release!
Loved the demo! <3 Otmund and Rein my beloveds.
Noooo I can't believe the demo ended when it did! It was SO good; looking forward to seeing the rest ;)
Aww haha thanks so much, so happy to hear you enjoyed!! <3 I'm hoping to release the full game soon, so hang tight!
this was so sweet, the characters are really compelling and I'm excited for the full release!
aww thanks so much, I'm so happy to hear that!! Thanks for spending some time with these two! :) <33
This game has nestled itself deep in my heart. I really love both characters, and it killed me to go back and choose the crummy options to see what would happen (but hey the completionist in me had to do it to em.)
I befriended Rein first, and had an absolute blast getting to know them. I was kind of surprised by how hot and cold they became over the course of the route, but I'm a patient bean!! I was able to wait for them to open up and gosh it was worth the wait.
Otmund, meanwhile. WOOF. He was a LOT more receptive to my advances than I expected, he wins the record for playing the best reverso uno card of the month.
Both characters are a joy to spend time with, and I look forward to getting to know them even better. My favorite part was the bathing scene, by far! So much fun no matter what you choose. :D But hecc I was already sweating when they took their cloaks off, you were very kind to give us the shirtless sprites (and those SWEET CGs) as well. Can't wait for more, I wanna see my companions happy and getting along, even if they can't help sniping at each other once in a while LoL.
Thank you so much for this incredibly sweet and thoughtful comment!! <33 Pretty sure my heart melted just now... Thank you so much for playing and enjoying, nothing makes me happier to hear!! :)
I just finished, that was amazing !!!!!! im so excited for the next updates !!!!!
Wonderfully written story with beautiful art, keep making more!
Can't wait for more updates! I am so in love with these characters and their stories so far!!!
I just recently finished my first run through the demo and I am so ready for the final release! You've put in so much effort to create immersive settings, and honestly I felt like I was on the journey with them! You're so talented, and I cannot wait to learn more about these characters!
Ahh, my heart!! Thank you so much for playing and for leaving this sweet comment!💖💖
I can’t wait to take you along for more adventures with Otmund & Rein!
aaaHHHH omg this is my joker
screaming and crying in the club, i cannot WAIT for this 👁👁 <3333
