Developer Diary reveals details about new Gods and Heroes updates and plans for launch
Outerdawn announced today that the new “Gods of Elderstone” update is live in the city-builder with a survival twist, Goblins of Elderstone, with the “Heroes of Elderstone” update coming soon.
Your goblins can now pray to the gods of your pantheon, expecting their religious needs to be fulfilled through blessings from their priests. Each god in your pantheon requires a dedicated temple in order for priests to spread the blessings of each specific god. A delicate balance must be achieved to please all of the gods, or you will feel their wrath. Additionally, some gods have a champion that is unlockable if you have enough Faith.
Goblins of Elderstone is a unique take on a city-building game with a far more chaotic, goblin-fuelled survival approach to the genre. Your emphasis is not only on buildings and commerce in your town, but on crafting the culture of its inhabitants and making sure they are happy. In addition to gathering resources and crafting structures, you must engage a layer of diplomacy as you navigate relationships with neighboring tribes, intrepid explorers, bandits, heroes and even gods. Your wits and skill at bartering/bribery negotiations, as well as the occasional pillaging, will help you transform Elderstone from a small village into an empire to be reckoned with.
Goblins of Elderstone is currently available in Early Access on Steam for 19.99 USD / £15.49 / €16.79
