Earlier this week, Orc Chop Video games introduced a brand new turn-based RPG roguelike, Goblin Stone. Having spent a not insignificant portion of my life battling the little blighters, I’m completely satisfied to say that as an alternative of farming them for XP or taking their treasure, this time round we’ll be taking part in as the goblins. It is about time.
Giving me vibes from all types of various genres from conventional RPGs to card video games to roguelike crawlers like Darkest Dungeon, Stone seems to be a goblin-flavored mashup in the very best approach. Not, like, a goblin stew mashup. Trigger who is aware of what they put in there.
In it, you’ll collect a tribe of goblins to battle towards the forces of sinister halflings and inept wizards that blight the land. Humanity has nearly gained the warfare, forcing the poor greenskins to the ends of the earth, and it’s payback time. You may construct up your base, purchase tools for goblins of various character lessons, and do battle with events of people with a card-based system that appears kinda like Slay the Spire.
The goblin artwork is kind of heartwarming, and Goblin Stone options cozy music from Peter McConnell of Hearthstone, Grim Fandango, and Psychonauts fame. I for one stay up for taking a crack at saving the poor little inexperienced guys from extinction.
Goblin Stone is about to launch on Steam (opens in new tab) someday this yr, and is anticipated on consoles someday in 2024.
For extra goblin experiences, you can attempt the gorgeous good Styx series of stealth video games.
