Just found chaps 2 and 3. They add a girl to the group, start harvesting components and begin to make stuff out of them. It also explains the lvling proces.
Plus I can swear they ate oolong

That human girl in the cover? Oolong? As in tea?

Interestingly enough, it looks like our guy comes from a sci-fi world.

Oolong was the pig in dbz based of the pig demon from journey to the west(I couldn't remember the Chinese name). The girl is a goblin. And it seems the mc leveled up to a hobgoblin at the end of the third chap

Right now his only desire is to survive as goblin life expectancy is low.
In the long term I don't know, but I hope that he finds a way to somehow get back into his world to ask why the hell.

Also I what to add that this series is big on evolutions, I mean picture this:
Goblin → Hobgoblin → Half-vampire → Vampire Noble
Goblin → Hobgoblin → Ogre → Minotaur
Goblin → Hobgoblin → Demon Prince/Or what ever our mc becomes
Elf → High Elf
Human → Hero

It's like high fantasy pokemon.

It also looks like an ogre still has a mystery evolution.

Any antagonists? I'm guessing that redhead chick in the cover is the hero?

Don't know, I think it has many temporary antagonists then a definite one. It's a story of conquest I guess. Our mc goes left and right giving the d to any girl he fancies.

Also fun fact, you keep your first name but after every evolution your name changes: Goblin Rou -> Hobgoblin Rou -> etc..

if I'm not mistaken he's currently at Goblin Lord or something similar. He presumably has only one evolution left to evolve into.
edit: Actually he's currently an apostle demon.

Based on stuff said elsewhere, MC forms a group of mercenaries so I'd assume antagonists would change depending on what they're currently doing.

Spoiler for MC Evolution Path:
