There are over 150 Illustrated story images from the art team.

That danger is always around, as permadeath remains a threat throughout. Have work to do. you'll have to build a lair underground, separated into the rooms you'll need, including a barracks, or a war room, and even begin a goblin breeding program to help the goblins to survive longer term. This also serves as a way to combine the best attributes in goblins to pad out and customize your armies for the battle ahead. 

The team says that Goblin Stone includes over 40 hours of gameplay, 60 different enemy types, and 25 boss battles to tackle. There will be hundreds of combinations available between classes, abilities, and weapons for your goblins, in this blend of RPG, strategy, and survival elements.

The game is narrated by Scottish actor James Smillie and features music from composer Peter McConnell, who is known for work on Hearthstone, Psychonauts, Monkey Island, and more.

Goblin Stone will be released on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.
