Play the demo for cosy shopkeeping game Trash Goblin on Steam starting May 30th

Restore lost trinkets and upcycle them into strange new items!

London, England – May 30th, 2024 – Indie game developer Spilt Milk Studios will be premiering ‘Upcycling’ in this brand new demo for their upcoming wholesome shopkeeping game Trash Goblin on Steam as part of Cozy & Family Friendly Games Celebration 2024, running from May 30th to June 2nd. Brought to you by rokaplay, Cozy & Family Friendly Games Celebration 2024 is a hand-picked selection of cosy and family-friendly games.

Trash Goblin is a wholesome & cosy shopkeeping game where you play as a goblin who uncovers and restores trinkets! Find peculiar knickknacks by chipping away at the dirt and cruft they’re embedded inside. Scrub them up nice and clean with your sponge to get them ready for sale. After all, one goblin’s trash is another goblin’s treasure!

Customise your newly replenished goods by combining trinkets together, upcycling them into strange and wonderful new items to meet the eccentric requests of your endless array of colourful customers. Get to know your audience so you can make custom pieces tailored around their likes and dislikes – which will fetch you even more money! 

Grow your business! Invest your savings to upgrade your shop, buy new and better tools that offer additional ways to restore your trinkets – making them even more valuable – and even expand your business to exciting new districts across town!

This demo offers over 90 minutes of gameplay, taking players through the basics of chipping, cleaning and upcycling trinkets, talking to customers, and even combining your restored trash into upcycled gems, with over two dozen trinkets to choose from.

The full game will feature:

  • 180+ trinkets, accessories & variations to find, clean, repair and upcycle
  • 8 tools to use across 3 trinket-care minigames
  • 15+ NPC characters to get to know and sell to
  • 25+ quests
  • Endless customers
  • Endless gameplay

“We’re so excited for people to finally be able to play with Upcycling in this fresh new demo of Trash Goblin,” said Spilt Milk Creative Director Andrew Smith. “We can’t wait to see all the shiny, weird creative combos of trinkets people come up with, and we’re looking forward to hearing player feedback as this will be the first time this build of Trash Goblin, which introduces the upcycling feature, has been publicly playable. This allows players to connect and combine trinkets. There are 48 Trinkets to play with, so with upcycling there are north of 1,000 combinations players can discover!”
