Last year was about slaying them, this year is about saving them. 

Award-winning indie studio Orc Chop Games, has today announced that their tactical turn-based RPG, Goblin Stone, will launch on Steam and Epic Games Store in the first quarter of 2024. 

Self published and developed by OrcChop Games, Goblin Stone is an epic turn-based RPG with a roguelike twist that gives the opportunity to help Goblins survive as they are hunted to near extinction. Players will assemble a scrappy band of Goblins and navigate a treacherous path to survival, battling nefarious adventurers, pompous elves, and surly dwarves, while skillfully overseeing an underground Lair, all packaged in a stunning, procedurally generated, hand-drawn adventure. 

“We really felt that we wanted this game to truly reflect the vision we had for it, and that players get to experience Goblin Stone exactly as we intended. We’ve been working on this game for many years and it’s become a labour of love for the team. Orc Chop Games are beyond excited for players to soon delve into this meticulously crafted world.”

Goblin Stone is fully narrated by Scottish voice actor James Smillie, with music from award-winning composer Peter McConnell of Hearthstone, Psychonauts 2 and Monkey Island fame.

Players can choose through hundreds of combinations between Goblin classes, weapons, abilities, and map traversal. The game has over 60 different enemy types, 25 Boss battles, the ability to grow & manage your own lair. Players will also be able to experiment with the innovative breeding system to strategically fuse goblin genes to improve their attributes and customise their squad.

Goblin Stone is set to release on PC via Steam and Epic Games in the first quarter of 2024.
