You play as Brad the barbarian, who is awoken to the sounds of his town under siege. Today is different though; Brad has grown tired of fighting all the time. The usual grind for XP has grown dull, and he has decided to pursue his dreams of making music instead of shedding blood.

Sobre este jogo


Thanks to Young Horses, Slick Ent Inc, and Team Meat for allowing us to do these amazing crossover exclusives for our Steam launch.

What is Bardbarian?
Bardbarian is a game! A game we've been lovingly working on for far too long and are ready to unleash on Steam with (hopefully) some love from the Greenlight Community.

What genre is the game?
It is a mixture of Tower Defense, RPG & RTS with some 'Shmup and Snake elements.

What's the Story?
You play as Brad the barbarian, who is awoken to the sounds of his town under siege. Today is different though; Brad has grown tired of fighting all the time. The usual grind for XP has grown dull, and he has decided to pursue his dreams of making music instead of shedding blood. Fashioning a lute out of an old axe, he steps out to save his town in the most bizarre of ways.

What's Gameplay like?
Move Brad around the battlefield and dodge incoming enemy attacks and projectiles. Brad is constantly playing his axe-lute and generating notes, standing still will cause him to "jam" and generate notes even faster. These notes act as your in-game resource; you can spend them to perform solos to summon units to follow and fight for you, as well as solos to boost their performance.

Navigate your party through the hordes of enemies, dodging and attacking, preventing them from destroying your town's prized decorative crystal. Survive waves to progress, collect loot, and unlock new units. Upon death you are able to visit the town shop in order to upgrade Brad, the town and your followers, in hopes to make it further next time.

Deveras empolgante. Uma ideia original e bem desenvolvida. Pela liberação dos personagens adicionais (seus minions) com o passar das waves o jogo te deixa animado a chegar mais longe e ganhar novos companheiros e novas combinações de equipe. Gráficos interessantes para o estilo. Jogabilidade tranquila, tanto no controle quanto no combo teclado+mouse. Pelo preço normal já seria uma aquisição boa, na promoção melhor ainda. Recomendo com tranquilidade para algumas horas de diversão.

Simples e Divertido. Praticamente um jogo de celular, Bardbarian tem uma ótima trilha sonora e uma mecânica simples o suficiente para uma boa distração. Você encarna um bárbaro-bardo que tem que ajudar a defender sua cidade (ou o cristal gigante da sua cidade) de hordas de inimigos clichês dos mundos de fantasia medieval, fazendo melhorias na sua equipe de "summons" conforme joga e adquire gold. Destaque para a aparição aleatória de personagens de jogos indies, como Octodad , Isaac e Meatboy.

+ Ótimo para passar tempo
+ Trilha sonora excelente
+ Temática e personagens divertidos

Odeio jogos "grind-to-win". Ficar repetindo a mesma coisa, wave após wave é um saco. Compra itens mais fortes, avance mais waves, morra, volte....ahhhhhhhhhhhh.

Peguei esse jogo por indicação de amigos. E devo dizer, é uma dos MELHORES grind-to-win que eu já joguei na vida.

Engraçado, desafiador e com muitos solos de guitarra (ou nesse caso "Axe-Lute"), você se diverte muito e quando percebe o game acabou. Quer dizer, a história principal... você pode ficar jogando até terminar tudo, mas eu não tenho esse saco, já que terminei o principal.

Em suma, um ótimo jogo. Bem simples, criativo e um excelente passatempo. Recomendo fortemente.

Great concept although gameplay and ambiance are repetitive. Most drones are useless. Sadly the music is also repetitive..

Good side is that all achievements are easy to get, requiring only time and patience.

It's a good game to relax and see your minions do their job.

A mecânica desse game é viciante e me prendeu por horas pelo fato de te dar uma sensação de progresso constante. Gráfico 2D simpático lembrando alguns desenhos animados da minha infância e carrega a essência dos games indie. Recomendado...

Bardbarian é um jogo bastante divertido e desafiador , no estilo tower defense.

Você controla um Bardo que ao toca seu machado invocando inúmeros tipos de criaturas que possuem uma habilidade diferente, fazendo sua própria estrategia para vencer as hordas de inimigos que vem a cada round.
Com seu machado você também pode usar três poderes diferentes , como aumentar o ataque , defesa, e velocidade de movimento o que ajudam muito ao longo do gameplay.

Apesar de ser divertido o jogo se torna facil ao longo do seu desenrolar , sendo apenas necessário fazer upgrades no personagem para zerar o jogo com facilidade o que torna quase impossível ser atingido pelos inimigos.

Concluindo Barbarian é um jogo bem feito, apesar de não ter historia alguma torna uma experiencia bacana a experimentar, principalmente aos jogares que optam a jogar jogos offline que é o principal foco do jogo.

Para não se arrepender de comprar o jogo aguarde uma promoção, porque o jogo realmente é uma otima opção para entrar na sua lista de games na steam.

Bardbarian is one of these games I went into "just to try", and find myself returning to now quite regularly. It has quite an original concept, being a tower defense with more than a twist. There is a central point to defend, and there are enemies coming in to attack, ever more, ever more strong. So far, so good.
But. The towers to defend your stronghold are not static, but are attached as party-members to the Bard you can steer around the battlefield, destroying enemies "on the fly" as it were. You do not attack yourself, but one can enhance the attacks of your party-members by playing short guitar-riffs, played free by collecting notes. Extra attack, speed, defence and a short freeze of the enemies come in handy as the waves of enemies get stronger. As usual, units and your Bard himself can be upgraded, for this one needs the coins the enemies drop in abundance.
In order to succeed, fast reactions and speedy thinking are necesarry. I found it difficult at first to keep an overview of the battlefield, as several issues need attention: where are the enemies coming in at thier strongest, which buffs are needed, did any of my units die so I have to summon a new one, is my stronghold still going strong, .... But after a while I got used to it and enjoyed running all over the place, with my little but brave party. Playing it with an Xbox 360-controller certainly helps and feels most natural.

Enemies get quite strong before halfway in the game, and so sustaining the 20 waves is no easy task. Every 5 levels there is a boss, but for the most part enemies do not change that much during the game. Still, with an extra "free run" mode (try to get as far as you can dodging the enemies) and with a "survival mode", one can come back to this game again and again. As can be expected nowadays, there are Steam trading cards and some inviting achievements, which really help to appreciate the game to the full. No classic, but still very enjoyable. Don't hesitate to buy this, especially when it's on sale or in a bundle.

Gameplay: 20/30
Graphics: 12/20
Sound: 9/10 (the combination of the sound-track and the guitar riffs works admirably well)
Longelivety: 14/20 (thanks to the extra modes, and to an extra difficulty level)
Technical & stability: 9/10
Personal rating: 7/10

Overall: 71/100

Barbarians were known for their ruthlessness and brute strength in battle, but did you know they were also known for their tasty riffs and ability to shred? In Bardbarian you’re charged with protecting a village rather than destroying one. You don’t do it by clobbering your foes with axes and hammers. No, you use the power of music to save them!As you might have surmised from the game’s title, you play a bard in Bardbarian. Well, to be more accurate, you play a barbarian who decides to trade in his weapons in order to take up shredding on a different kind of axe; in this case, a musical one. It just so happens the day he makes this important, life-changing decision, his village is attacked by a bevy of orcs and other baddies. With axe in hand, he uses the power of song to inspire his fellow townspeople to rise up against the invaders.The premise of Bardbarian is fairly simple, and therein lies the fun. All of the action takes place in the village and your main goal is to protect its crystal. Waves of enemies will stream in from the forest to the right, so it’s your job to have Brad round up townspeople to defend their homes. Brad can call upon archers, healers, brawlers, dwarves, storm knights and other kinds of units.These guys can provide ranged damage, melee/projectile damage and healing for Brad and his party. The right combination of units can help you plow enemies en masse with ease, so pay careful attention to your party makeup with relation to the enemies on the field at any given time.Your party’s makeup matters a lot because spellcasters and ranged damage dealers will flank Brad while tough melee units will act as tanks and lead the party. Different classes have different aggro ranges, so you’ll either have to move Brad in very close to have units like Brawlers activate their attacks or kite enemies at a distance so that Archers can loose their arrows. As the game gets more difficult, more enemies appear onscreen at the same time, so you’ll have to be very judicious about your movements to make sure you’re inflicting optimum damage while also avoiding enemy projectiles.Gathering units expends Notes, which Brad generates by jamming out when he’s standing still. You merely need to tap on a portrait of a unit to spend Notes and have Brad play a sick solo to summon them from their homes. Once you’ve gathered your units and are ready to defend the town, killing baddies is as easy as dragging Brad around and getting his party within range of the enemies. They’ll fire off their shots, destroy enemies and continue following Brad around.Fallen enemies drop gold coins, which can then be used in the Item Shop. You’ll be able to purchase upgrades for Brad’s buffs, increase the size of his party, hire different units and even make upgrades to the town. The game can be very difficult, but it is also very fun and rewarding. You’ll have to tackle stages over and over to amass enough gold to upgrade everything to a level that gives you a fighting chance against bosses, but that’s part of Bardbarian’s fun.Bardbarian’s action is made all the more enjoyable thanks to the hand-drawn, cartoony graphics. The style is reminiscent of the multiplayer game, Castle Crashers, and adds the right amount of goofiness to the proceedings. If there is one thing that really holds Bardbarian back from being a truly perfect game, it’s the fact that it’s so challenging. While the difficulty may be fun for fans of the genre it kind of hampers the story a bit and may cause other gamers to lose interest.Bardbarian is a heavy blast of cartoon violence that slowly but surely develops into a concentrated and exciting action game, that's not quite like anything you've played before.

everything about this game is perfect for it
great music
lovely artwork
nice multiple gameplay modes
easy controls
a refreshing take on tower defense genre

some might complain about the grind but I think that is only there to keep it challenging and interesting to replay it

I was playing then magically transported to the realm "it's 3 am and my head smacked my keyboard". Un healthly addicting, and you can play it for 10 minutes or 10 hours. Perfect for when "she" says, I'll be out in 10 minutes...we'll see, we'll see......

Recommend a controller, not needed though. Best 5 bucks I spent in the last month

Decently fun horde-based bard-oriented carnage. Don't go looking for ultra depth but it's good fun while it lasts and offers enough variety. Fairly good challenge but relatively easy to 100% so for those who lack time (like me) that's always a plus. Recommended if you don't have much to play (which won't happen, I know) or if you want to pass time at work or something. Oh, it has loads of cameos of other indie game characters!

First I thought this was going to be one of those bundle filler games that are good for nothing (except filling bundles ofc). I was surprised to find a pretty damn good game. Try it out, you probably won´t be disappointed!

Pros:
Good gameplay
Simple but enjoyable mechanics
Plenty of replayability (if that is your thing)
Not too long, not too short
Awesome price
Good music

Cons:
Simple (you really don´t need a brain here)
Not too long, not too short
Needs more music :(

Hope this will help other gamers and rogue-like/light enthusiasts, have fun! ^.^

Bardbarian is like binding of isaac mostly but without randomly generated rooms, items beeing gained by collecting money from mobs;

Cons (most are small inconveniencies):
- not the best looking game for those who care for such things;
- not a very challenging game;
- can be a bit grindy;
- once last class aquired other classes are more or less useless (but if you want it to be challenging you can pick other classes);

Pros:
- not a very challenging game;
- has a good variety of classes and upgrades;
- has 4 modes, survival, escape, normal and Day 2(infinite waves);
- music is not bad despite repeating;
- an ok number of monsters (with diferent atacks);
- controls seemed responsive for me;

I played this game for hours , I think the curve (values for balancing) isn't right.. this feels like mobile game. Yeah I notice that bardbarian have mobile version (probably mobile version come first), i expect the dev already aware about this before launching it on steam, this game is good, but very very repetitive

pro
- good music
- nice graphic

con
- the game economic, it feels like MOBILE game :( please don't put us as free user when we actually pay in steam

I can't review becaues my time is limited, but that's my impression after 4-6 hours of playing
