Description

Almost Epic Adventures: The Goblin's Week is a first person adventure-investigation-stealth game, taking place in a satirical dark fantasy world full of humor. You play a goblin who has just been hired for a week as the new dungeon janitor. Each day, you have various missions to do for the Evil Dungeon Master, including the dungeon maintenance (cleaning blood, repairing traps, looting dead adventurers), cooking, sweeping the floor, etc. However, you soon discover disturbing clues about what is happening in the dungeon, and may be tempted to disobey and to investigate in the forbidden rooms of the dungeon... But be careful, you have to look as submissive and obedient as possible, or you may not survive until the end of the week...

History

Almost Epic Adventure: The Goblin's Week is the first game of the independent game developer Arnaud Emilien, currently in development since January 2015 and planned to be released in late 2018.

The game idea originates from short fantasy adventures and novels I wrote for Pathfinder RPG, and that I developed via several months of world-building.

Fan of classic adventure games like Monkey Island, but frustrated by their poor gameplay, my goal is to combine the fun and humor of classic adventure games with a more reactive gameplay, inspired by immersive sims like Deus Ex, Thief: The Dark Project, and Morrowind. I am also deeply inspired by investigation-oriented D&D adventures, and Traps&Treachery-like dungeon exploration.

The game is the first game of the series Almost Epic Adventures, a series focused on first person adventure games with a lot of humor and a great liberty of action.

The game was Greenlit in January 2017.

Features

  • Play a dungeon janitor working for an evil mage, and discover the joys of dungeon maintenance. Clean blood, repair traps, loot dead adventurers, and much more.
  • Live an epic* adventure like you never lived before, and discover an original satirical dark fantasy world filled with humor. (*Almost)
  • Explore a dangerous dungeon full of deadly traps, secret rooms, and mysteries.
  • Be a sneaky goblin. Infiltrate forbidden places, read confidential journals, and discover terrible secrets, while pretending to be a nice and obedient minion.
  • Hide in the shadows, avoid making noise, listen to your surrounding, pay attention to the environment, open doors carefully... try not to get caught.
  • Inspired by immersive sims, we do not create puzzles, but problems. The physically-based interactions and traps, and the complex and open level design, offers multiple paths and solutions.
