    [GAME] Goblins of Elderstone

    Hi!

    We are a very small indie team of goblins based in middle earth (New Zealand) called Lost Goblin and this is our latest project:

    Goblins of Elderstone is a sandbox tribe management city building game with some light RPG and strategy elements filled with adorable chaotic goblins that will kill each other and burn down the village if they don't like how you rule them!

    Early Teaser Trailer:



    Some key features:
    • Free form city building - Not grid based city building. Buildings connect to each other with pathways and bridges to create great looking goblin style villages.
    • Large resource and crafting tree - Over 30 different resources that need to be gathered and crafted.
    • Clan, world and divine politics - Create your unique goblin tribe and it's clans then see the tribe grow when new clans form. Later protect clans from murdering each other and try prevent them from killing the King or burning down the entire village.
    • War, Trade or Faith - Chose to play as either a warlord conquering the world, an industrious trader that rules the world through wealth or as a powerful avatar to the gods or a combination of all.
    • Scout, Raid, Trade or Pilgrimage - Scout other regions, Raid NPC locations or dungeons, Trade with other cities or send Spirit Treks to holy sites to gain favor with your gods.
    • RPG Story Moments - Generated text based story moments with meaningful consequences. Deal with traveling strangers, evil Overlords, cunning Dragons or benevolent gods.
    • Defend your tribe - Defend the tribe from roaming worgs and monsters or Adventuring Parties. Fight off enemy raid parties.

    This looks beautiful! Great work. I particularly love the low-poly art style and colour palette. Best of luck with Greenlight and Early Access!

                  Hey great question - the humans are not, by default, always the "good guys" in our game and we wanted a way to de-humanize them a little to maybe show how goblins view humans. The white eyes are not necessarily the final design if we find something to better make this point and make them less zombie-like. Do you have other suggestions?

                    You can make evil red eyes, with a trail.

                      Well that might go a little too far, they wont all be super evil I just want to de-humanize them a bit, let the player associate more with his goblins than the humans... we'll try a few ideas over time and see how it goes.
