Goblin Camp Is A Deep & Characterful Colony Simulator With a Finnish Mythology Twist! – Demo Out Now for Steam Next Fest

The 3D return of a classic ASCII city-builder, download the demo and dive into a beautiful fantasy world!

Finnish indie game studio Korppi Games is pleased to announce that their first game, Goblin Camp, will be participating in Steam’s June 2024 Next Fest. Goblin Camp will be out in Early Access later in 2024.

​Goblin Camp is a fresh look at the colony simulator genre. Drawing inspiration from classic fantasy and Finnish mythology, Goblin Camp delivers a mellow take on city-building in a beautiful but dangerous northern forest. Explore a unique world populated by spirits: harness their power to cast mighty spells, or anger them and face the consequences! The game features exclusive music by video game composer Henri Sorvali (also known from Moonsorrow, Finntroll), showcasing the traditional Finnish instrument, the kantele. The music and art combine to deliver an experience of a vibrant natural world and its changing seasons.

​The original Goblin Camp was an ASCII freeware game first published in 2010, and it’s now been re-imagined in full 3D glory by a team led by the original developer. Its roguelike heritage shows in the use of procedural generation to simulate a glacial landscape, and a dynamically growing forest that responds to your actions. Other technical highlights include advanced water and fire simulations, and centralized manager interfaces that make it easy to scale gameplay from a tiny village to a bustling city. These manager interfaces, combined with far-reaching goblin autonomy, free the player from micromanaging the camp and let them concentrate on developing their growing civilization.
