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.

Treefortress Strikes Back

Hey Bardbarian players!

Thank you all so much for supporting us and playing our first game! We couldn't be happier with the reception and kind words many of you have for it. Glad you've enjoyed spending time in our world! We will definitely be revisiting the bard universe at some point!

HOWEVER, with this post we're proud to announce that we've actually launched our second game called JumpJet Rex! It's currently in Early Access because we realized (especially with bardbarian) just how important community feedback is, and want everyone's help shaping JJR into the best game it possibly can be.

You can check it out here.



Hope you like it!

Shawn and Mike,

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.

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 quite the fun game. It blends elements of tower defense, RPG, action-strategy, and bullet-dodging to form a short-and-sweet little game. Personally, the game felt a lot like the “Protect the Queen” games I used to play on StarCraft custom maps. There are no truly innovative mechanics to the game, but the way the pieces come together do manage to form a game that has a strong charm of novelty.

The game is short. It took me just under 5 hours to earn all achievements. That’s OK though, because it was a fun 5 hours and I didn’t really need any more. If you find yourself wanting more you can compete on the leaderboards.

Also, the game is casual. Even on the “insane” difficulty, the game becomes simple once you’ve bought enough upgrades. As someone who enjoys casual games, I really felt the balance of difficulty in this game was very enjoyable. You have to pay attention and play, but you won’t ever find yourself frustrated. Having said that, people who like very difficult games may find themselves left wanting by Bardbarian.

The gameplay itself is extremely simple. You’ll have it all figured out in the first minute and it won’t change much after that. There are new units and upgrades which you unlock that spice things up as you progress. But I will admit, the content is rather limited.

The graphics are "cartoonish" and simple, but they fit the atmosphere. The music is not bad by any means, but I felt it could have been a little more epic and various considering the game has strong musical undertones. The controls are fluid and intuitive. The game is stable; I experienced no glitches or crashing.

In summary, I would say Bardbarian is very fun and worth playing. It’s simple enough that almost anyone should be able to enjoy the gameplay. If you are itching for something fresh and a little different you can probably get some fun out of this game.

Great and very addictive simple indie game with few RPG elements. Honestly one of the best indies i ever played. Got it from bundle, but i need to admit that £5.59 is not much for such production. Anyway I'm a bit sad, because Bardbarian lacks of replayability, which is really needed in this genre in my opinion. Didn't really like the survival mode, but who cares when the main features are fantastic.

So if you didn't get it yet, i can strongly recommend Bardbarian to all RPG/tower defence fans, especially if you are bored and willing to have some fun.

My rating: 85/100

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.

I actually lanched this game to get the trading cards that comes with it. I tried the game out and im surprised on how good it is. You play through levels, kill enemies and try to defend your throne. When you kill creeps they drop gold, which you can use to upgrade your followers health, damage, etc.

The graphics are okay. Looks like a cute cartoon-ish style, almost like a mobile game. The game runs fine though and the PC port seems to be solid in every way. Since there's a lot of grinding involved in this, you might wanna play this game for short periods at a time.

I'm enjoying the music that comes with it. It's a rock song with some nice drum rhythm, and I think it suits the game really well. As you progress you unlock new followers that have different abillities, and like I said, you upgrade them with the gold you collect. It starts of easy but it gets hard pretty quick.

definitely a nice little game, but due to the repetitive grinding you might want to pick it up on sale or in a bundle. It depends on if you like that kind of thing or not.

You may think this game is boring looking or not fun but it is! I thought it was one of those boring games that you just use heros to fight waves of enemys over and over again but it's not really like that. Theres a shop to upgrade, survival mode, and escape mode. The game can get addicting and really fun so I recommend getting this game. It's only eight bucks and the game sometimes goes on sale! 10/10

A neat PvZ style tower defense game featuring many guitar solos and co-starring Super Meat Boy. Also serves as a prime example of a mobile port that makes the effort to transition over to PC instead of just dumping a game with mouse based touch conrols on here.
