Goblins of Elderstone brings a unique and chaotic twist to the city-building genre. It is more than just a city builder - it’s a Goblin Tribe Simulator! In Goblins of Elderstone, you will nurture your tiny clan as it grows to become an awe-inspiring tribe, capable of standing against the other races and, perhaps, even the gods. Rule over the chaos and feed the growing goblin war machine by raiding dungeons and villages.

The game play is inspired by the Anno games, Banished, Stonehearth, Rimworld, and the Settlers series, but it is still very much its own legend. We love goblins, and believe that they are underrepresented in games. They deserve a city builder of their own! We have so many great ideas to add to the genre, and we would love to share the experience with you during Early Access. We hope you agree that goblins are awesome and don't always have to be the villains - unless, of course, you want them to be!

In Goblins of Elderstone, you have plenty of options. You can weave together a trading empire to build a mighty and industrious goblin nation. You can become a divine ruler and lead your tribe to glory through the power of your deities, or be a conqueror and show the world the power of your goblin forces. Manage your tribe however you desire, but remember that these are still goblins we’re talking about. They could get riled up and start killing each other or burning down the village if they decide your leadership is lacking.


In Goblins of Elderstone, the choice is yours. You can use your wisdom and industrious nature to create a trade empire. You can be the divine chosen one and lead your tribe to glory through the power of your faith in the gods. You can be a conqueror and show the world the might of your goblin forces. This is your tribe, and it is whatever you make it!

Chaotic Goblins

Chaotic Goblins - While happy goblins generally do what they are told, if you don't fulfill their needs or they get bored, there is no telling what mischief they will get up to. They will steal or kill each other,try to burn down the village or even go wild and live in the forest only to attack your village later.

Free form city building

Goblins don’t much like orderly straight lines, so there’s absolutely no way they’ll use a grid when building. They are rebellious, but creative. As a result, buildings go up wherever desired, but neat little pathways and bridges will always be built alongside them to ensure they’re properly connected.

Large resource and crafting tree

Large resource and crafting tree - With over 30 different resources that can be gathered, crafted, traded, or stolen, your goblins will always have plenty of work to do. As a result, it’s worthwhile to invest in a few Enforcers to ensure they keep at it!

Clan, world and divine politics

Use a combination of fast-talking, gift-giving, violence, and just the right amount of threats to keep your clans in line. Failure to do so will likely result in a fair amount of murder and potentially the destruction of your entire village. However, diplomacy doesn’t stop there. Other races, and even the gods, can be convinced to do your bidding.
