Award-winning indie game development studio Orc Chop Games gas announced that Goblin Stone, their tactical turn-based RPG with roguelike elements, will launch on PC in Q1 2024. The self published title flips the script and has players help the goblins survive against nefarious adventurers.
Assemble a ragtag party of Goblins and navigate the world in order to survive. Hunted to near extinction, the band of Goblins will have to fend off adventurous humans looking for loot, pompous elves, and surly dwarves. On top of all the action, players will have to oversee an underground lair.
The 2D world of Goblin Stone is a procedurally generated hand-drawn environment with a uniquely stunning artistic styling. Scottish voice actor James Smillie lends his vocal charm to the fully narrated title. Award-winning composer Peter McConnell (Hearthstone, Psychonauts 2, and Monkey Island) provides the melodic musical backdrop for the game.
Gameplay features the ability to choose from hundreds of combinations between the various Goblin classes, weapons, abilities, and paths along the map. With over 60 different enemy types, 25 Boss battles, and the ability to grow and manage one’s own lair, players will find plenty of activities that lay before them. Experimentation with an innovative breeding system allows players to fuse goblin genes to improve their attributes and customize their squad to ensure the survive of the Goblin race.
