Awesome news … we’ve been greenlit!

February 18, 2014 in Gnoblins

Soooo, … now what?

After we’ve done all of the boring paperwork we can start concentrating on the game. Quite a few parts of it are subject to change and we still need to figure out the exact roadmap for those things, but the team is highly motivated and ready to set sail.

We’ve already collected some ideas to improve the gameplay and the overall gaming experience. However, we are still open to new suggestions regarding the game. If you have something like that, don’t hesitate … let us know.

For those new to the game, head to the download-page and give it a ride.

Stay tuned for more…

Alpha Demo released !

February 28, 2013 in Gnoblins

Today we are proud to announce the release of the alpha demo of Gnoblins. You can download it directly from our homepage over here or from IndieDB:

Download from IndieDB
Gnoblins is a 3d dungeon crawler game, a rogue-like in its heart,  with a lightweight RTS part. You need to save the world of Amunlak from an upcoming peril. You,  a former novice of the destroyed secret society of the guardians, found yourself in unknown underground world inhabited by the unimpressive appearing people, who call themselves the Gnoblins. But with the help of these people, you must find a way to save the world from its own greed and hate.

The demo features the  first underground world consisting of several levels which contain randomized parts. You are able to explore the underground world in first person perspective and to seek hidden treasures and secrets which might be helpful in your quest. Additionally the Gnoblins will lead you a helping hand, at least for a small obolus. With their help you will be able to craft better equipment and build your own dungeon to survive the dangers hidden in the darkness.

The game is still in the alpha stage, therefore expect some bugs and glitches and consider that most, but not all features have been  implemented yet (details). But if you like the game, please consider supporting us. Just mentioning our game on twitter, facebook or your blog would be really help to us. If you need some footage take a look at the screenshot section (including a small press-kit). Although vote for Gnoblins on Greenlight and on IndieDB. If you have some questions, take a look at our FAQ section or post your comments on either Greenlight, IndieDB or our own forum.

Here’s a small trailer to the demo version:
