Gnoblins is a kind of roguelike(-like) game in 3d still in development. The game is basicly a RPG playing in a dungeon world with the addition of some lightweight RTS elements. The RTS elements results from a small community of minions, called gnoblins, which you can aquire to support your adventures. Building up your own part of a dungeon with the help of your gnoblins is one of the major features of the game. Besides dungeon building, randomly generated levels, permadeath, and crafting are further features. The development spirit of Gnoblins is 'roguelike' too. Therefore we will provide an early access to game and hope to build up a game community to help us refining the game.

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 directly 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:

As for the rendering, it depends on what kind of game you are going for. Something more like a kids game would be the 2 tone or 3 tone in my opinion. Gourand looks like it would be the deep dark and mysterious. And warp looks like brighter happier version than gourand. Personally, I like gourand since you are suppose to be underground and all.

Interesting concept with the RTS thrown in. One thing I am not understanding though is what kind of RTS? Micromanaging the gnoblins or more of tower defense with the gnoblins against creatures that want your loot? Are the gnoblins sort of your home defenders or are they pets that you take along with you?

The art style is really just a art style. The lights will be handled differently, though the surrounding is lit the same way. If it is dark, it is dark and you don't see what lurks in the darkness, you just hear it.

I've added the option to let the player choose himself the level of stylization. When your are more happy with the lowest setting, then choose it :)

The RTS part is really lightweight. You don't micromanage the gnoblins a lot (you choose a profession path). They are here to build your dungeon and craft for you Additionally it is planed, that you can take one with you on your journey through the dungeon, where he will react much like an autonomous pet and they will be useful when you need to defend your dungeon.
