Behold the magical land of the Oaken. An otherworldly kingdom where spirits live among the Great Oak’s branches. Where wisps, seedlings, and wanderers all move to the sound of the Great Oak’s voice. All guided towards a peaceful existence by its assuring presence. Until one day, when the voice suddenly goes silent. Then a series of cursed events threaten to destroy the realm.

Choose a path and take on a daring adventure to save the Great Oak. Pick one of the guides, mighty spirits with distinct abilities to aid the hero in battle. Aya and her spiky seeds inflict damage at the end of every turn. But Enju’s miracle cure reinforces allies each time they heal.

With each advance, select a new branch and push forward. While winning battles unlock new cards and encounters provide heroes with wisps. Random events in Oaken also prompt them to make a decision to win different rewards. Such as lumi globes to upgrade units and spells. Unwanted or repeated cards can be destroyed to create Lumi Dust and improve unit stats. While allowing for increased performance on the battlefield.

A beautiful, whimsical world inspired by Celtic mythology. Oaken is a bright, fable-like game full of engaging battles to the sound of a folk type soundtrack.

As it captures a lot of what Goblinz represents,” said Johann Verbroucht, founder and manager at Goblinz Publishing. “It has magic, tactical battles, deck management, tons of strategy, and it is a lot of fun. We hope players of all ages can enjoy this adventure as much as we do!”
