5 Upcoming Turn-Based RPGs

Here we are with the lineup of this week KEEP AN EYE ON IT. 5 turn-based games that are on my wishlist and that maybe will also end up in yours. Here you will also find a video with all the trailers of the games below.

Ruin Hunters

Prince Game Studio


Ruin hunters

Let’s start this new episode with something tactical. Ruin Hunters by Prince Game Studio. A turn-based tactical RPG where we must guide a party of 3 heroes inside dungeons to gather treasures and become stronger.

Key fetures

▪ Turn-based combat (position your heroes, and choose the right skill for attack or defense)
▪ Use the environment (use it for cover, attack, or just simple push the enemy to it)
▪ Level up your heroes (learn new skills, talents)
▪ Momentum points (some skill generates points, some needs points to cast, but when the hero reaches the maximum momentum, he will be able to perform stronger actions with the skills)
▪ Dungeon alert (alertness of the dungeon, as it is increased, monsters will be more alert, or attack your party unexpectedly)

No release date yet. Here the Steam page

Goblin Stone

Goblin Stone

Maybe this week is the one that inspires me the most. I’m talking about Goblin Stone by Orc Chop Games. Goblins, orcs, and trolls are almost wiped up by adventures and we must guide a group of survivors in a desperate mission to reverse their fate. Regarding the game, Goblin Stone is a turn-based RPG set in a 2d charming hand-drawn world. We must fight in Darkest Dungeon like turn-based combat and we must also manage and build our lair.

Key features
  • Build a great goblin lair chamber by chamber where only ruins stood before.
  • Explore a vast world with procedurally generated hand-drawn 2D levels.
  • Battle despicable humans, elves, and dwarves in an innovative turn-based battle system.
    Take a feeble ragtag group of goblins and selectively breed the next generation of genetically superior fighters.
  • Listen as the narrator charmingly tells your story as you experience it.
  • Expect many goblins to perish. Permanently. With each death, a new ancestor strengthens your lineage.
  • Build an adventuring party by mixing unique goblin classes such as the Raider, Guard, and Shaman.
  • Difficult choices await you as you decide which goblins to keep and which to toss.
  • Turn up the music and listen to award-winning composer Peter McConnell famous for music in iconic games such as Hearthstone, Grim Fandango, Psychonauts, and Broken Age.

Goblin Stone will be released on November 2021 on Steam
