We were joined by this week by Gustav Seymore from Lost Goblin an experienced development team based in Auckland, New Zealand. Gustav joined us to talk to us about his game Goblins of Elderstone, a city management game featuring everyone’s favourite video game punching bags, goblins.

You can back Goblins of Elderstone on Kickstarter right now, or check them out at the PAXAUS indie showcase.
