Who can also be hired to aid you on your grand adventures and pillaging raids. As well as adding a host of other new features and fixes to the game.
Reaching out to developer Outerdawn again, they have updated details for Linux and Mac support.
…we are close to Beta now and are looking good for early next year
Goblins Of Elderstone is due for a Linux and Mac build next year now. Since they are close to a Beta, Outerdawn does not have an official release yet. Having already moved the date a couple of times. They are leaving out any announcements until closer to the new year. But it’s good to see that Linux support is still in the plan. Plus the gameplay is starting to take better shape in the latest update.
The new tavern building added in the update will be a place for heroes to congregate. Giving you the opportunity to hire from a large selection of random and unique heroes. All due to help defend your Goblins Of Elderstone village. Or maybe provide powerful bonuses to a trek when assigned as their party’s leader. A new batch of heroes looking for an excuse to share their epic stories. And also down some goblin ales will wander into the tavern every in-game Summer. This also gives players a fresh batch to choose from.
