Goblin Gearshop is a promising new online multiplayer game that sees you managing your own goblin workshop, forging a variety of powerful weapons and then giving them to your Goblin warriors so they can fend off attacks from troublesome Orcs.
In Goblin Gearshop you don’t take part in the combat, but instead craft the weapons for the Goblins that do. You and up to three other players are tasked with running a workshop that specializes in building all manner of powerful weaponry, creating quality weapons that will serve your Goblin army as they do battle with the Orcs. Creating the best gear will require teamwork, with each goblin manning a different piece of equipment, such as the furnace or the saw. The better the weapon, the more cash you’ll make and the better your reputation will become, with the opposite results if you create substandard weaponry. There’s also a Rock, Paper, Scissors element to the combat, as you continually try and craft the correct weapons that will best counteract the ones the Orcs are using at the moment.
It’s a fun premise, and although blacksmith simulators have been done before, this is the first time it’s been done with multiplayer. It could be fun to work alongside friends crafting those weapons or it could end up being a goblin sweatshop simulator! Sign up now for a chance to start crafting those mighty weapons!
