Curve Games has teamed up with Orc Chop Games to publish the roguelike turn-based RPG, Goblin Stone.
Thus far, Goblin Stone has already received critical acclaim including Devgamm! Fall 2021 Best Indie Game and GDWC Weekly Cote 39 Fan Favorite 2021. The game was also named a finalist at the 2021 Tencent GWB Game Awards, a nominee for One Voice UK Best Character Performance 2021, and a nominee for Devgamm! Fall 2021 Excellence in Visual Art.
Goblins and orcs have been hunted to near extinction and driven underground. Featuring tactical combat, players will need to gather a group goblins and journey through the procedurally generated world. Seeking to change the fate of an entire species, players will face difficult choices as they work towards their goal.
Gameplay pits goblins against against despicable humans, elves, and dwarves in a turn-based combat system. The world is full of 2D hand-drawn environments, procedurally generated levels, and diverse biomes.
Players will discover and build a great goblin lair. Each chamber, from the Barracks to War Room will have to be built. Every generation of goblins is important. By selectively breeding goblins with the best genes and traits, players can create future generations that have what it takes to survive. Using a mix of goblin classes like Raider, Guard, and Shaman make for a great adventuring party.
However, difficult choices will have to be made at times, deciding which goblins to keep and which to discard. Many will perish for the cause, but with each death, a new ancestor will strengthen the goblin lineage.
Original music from award-winning composer Peter McConnell accompanies the game’s fully narrated storyline. McConnell is known for his work on Hearthstone, Grim Fandango, Psychonauts and Broken Age.
Along with the Curve Games’ Goblin Stone publishing announcement, comes the release of the Goblin Stone Announcement Trailer. In the trailer, viewers are treated with a narrated brief of the game and various gameplay elements emphasizing that the time of goblins is now.
Goblin Stone is coming to PC in 2023 via Steam and to consoles in 2024. Players can add the game to their Steam wishlist now. For more information follow @goblinstonegame on Twitter, like @GoblinStone.Game on Facebook, follow @goblinstone.game on Instagram, or subscribe to @goblinstone.
