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.

Apesar de parecer simples como a maioria de jogos do estilo "Tower Defense", Bardbarian tem seu diferencial.

- É necessário ter uma boa mobilidade para desviar das habilidades inimigas e tbm controlar o range de atk e habilidades de sua party, característica pouco encontrada em "TDs" e mais em jogos Arcade.
-Vc não ataca, apenas sua party (exceto 1 healer e 1 tank que reflete projéteis), mas usuflúi de 4 "Solos"(buffs) com efeitos caracteríscos de acordo com a necessidade, e summona até 4 diferentes unidades pra te ajudar (somando até 9 simultâneas).
-Existem inúmeras combinações de party possibilitando várias estratégias diferentes, o que deixa o jogo menos enjoativo e mais desafiador.
-Vc pode upar sua vila (base), aumentando a vida do "Nexus"(q vc deve proteger), 2 torres auxiliares próximas do "Nexus", pode tbm upar as lojas e NPCs de sua vila pra te ajudarem com comida (cura), dinheiro e CC (slow).
-Pode aprimorar seu personagem (Vida, mobilidade, ganho de gold, buffs, distanciamento da party, quantidade máxima da party até 9, etc.)
-Pode desbloquear e aprimorar cada personagem da sua party, cada um com suas características e habilidades.
-Não é um jogo longo, dá pra zerar sem antes enjoar, tanto que vc vai querer fazer as conquistas conforme vai evoluindo.
-Depois de matar os 4 chefes das 20 fases é liberado lvls 21+ os quais acredito eu que não tenha fim, pois são extremamente difíceis conforme vai passando de fase, ainda mais se for jogar no modo insano.
-Tem tbm o modo Survival e Escape.
-Trilha sonora empolgante que deixa a jogatina mais frenética e não te deixa perder o ritmo.

Em promoção vale a pena comprar o jogo, pois é um ótimo passatempo pra qdo quer jogar algo diferente pra distrair a cabeça e se divertir. Minha filha adorou me ver jogando! Rsrsrsrsrsrsrsrs

Eu particulamente recomendo!

Repetition in video games can be draining sometimes. There's only so many times you can jump on things, slash them, shoot them, right? And if that's the case for you the player, what must it be like for the characters actually doing the work? Bardbarian's a game that explores that a bit.

You play as Brad, a barbarian mercenary working to defend a nameless town and its giant magic crystal, which does...probably something important, since every monster in the area wants it smashed, although they never get around to saying what. Trouble is, Brad is having a bit of a mid-life crisis: surely there must be more to life than constant killing? The answer to that he finds is embracing his artistic side in the form of music, and helping other people kill things!

Bardbarian takes place in the town for the whole of the game, as twenty waves assault the crystal over the course of a single day. These make up four sections, with five levels each and a boss at the end. To combat them, Brad has to jam on his guitar and summon allies from out of the local barracks and wizard college; they move in to close formation around him, not unlike Tiny Guardians. This game is action-based, however, and you'll be moving back and forth to let your allies shoot down monsters with either the arrow keys, WADS, the mouse or a controller. You start off with a simple archer-wizard-fighter combo, but as you unlock units by passing waves you'll find more interesting ones, like a necromancer who curses enemies, and resurrects them as a zombie minion if they're killed under the effects of it. There are also some indie cameos from Octodad, a Super Meat Boy/Isaac tag team, and Shellrazer, who's from a mobile tower defense that isn't on Steam.

If twenty waves sounds a bit short to you, well, it kind of is. The length mostly comes from you kind of having to go back and upgrade your allies, Brad himself, and the town with the gold you get from killing enemies; even if you're very good at dodging they'll simply get too spongey. After every boss you'll have the option of starting at the next area whenever you do, so you won't have to start at the beginning every time. There are also upgrades to make gathering gold easier, such as the Pet, who will grab it from dead enemies so you don't have to.

Even with upgrades, though, the game can be quite tricky, and I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to people without experience in shooters. Most enemies have some sort of projectile attack, and it isn't long before it a minor bullet hell, with you weaving in and out to protect your squishier allies and Brad himself. You'll need to be proactive when dealing with enemies, too, as letting even a couple goblins get up to the crystal can lead to quite a bit of damage. Naturally, it's also a game over if you die yourself. And if you really want a challenge, there's an even harder difficulty you can pick right from the start.

It took me about nine hours to beat the game, although it might take a bit longer for someone not as good at action games. There are two optional modes in addition to it; a challenge mode where you try to survive against an endless horde of enemies, and a sort of runner minigame where you try to avoid obstacles. They can both give gold, but it still felt like the main campaign was the most efficient method of doing that, and it doesn't feel like they'd extend the playtime very much.

Bardbarian is definitely a good game if you can put up with some grinding, although I'm not certain I would buy it at full price. It's been on sale a bunch though, and can be found in one of the permanent bundles on BundleStars. It's a decent game with some charm for in-between larger ones, I'd say.

Supposedly the protagonist Brad got tired of the grind for XP and decided to retire to be a bard, but this game is still nothing but grind.

Brad doesn’t directly attack enemies, but instead plays music to summon members of his party that are selected before the game starts. Half of the game is spending coins to upgrade all kinds of passives for the town, units and Brad himself, but the single upgrade paths are all standard. The player gets some sense of strategy by picking which units to include in their party, which is kind of like selecting what towers to build in a TD game, except being mobile takes away figuring out the puzzle of a good maze or what tower combinations are most efficient for an area. The other part of the game is spent as Brad running around while his party auto attacks enemies. After a while the game kind of feels like it plays itself for the most part. It never seemed like I got better at fighting the same handful of enemies over and over again while listening to the same melody, in the same environment.

I bought in for the promise of more content, mainly co-op, and for the crossover characters. The crossover novelty was cool, but wore off, and the promised content has yet to come. Maybe I would have enjoyed it more with co-op, but overall it was a lukewarm experience.

Bardbarian is functional and can be fun for a while, but it’s not really that engaging.

Incredibly fun.
Very easy to just sit back, chill, and play.
If that's what you are looking for you found it.
Good sounding music, fun graphics, nothing complicated to it.
As said above, sit back, chill, and play.

Ótimo joguinho no estilo Tower Defense com elementos de RPG. Lindo visual, trilha sonora de rock muito maneira e uma jogabilidade viciante. Não sei se sou só eu, mas me lembra bastante de Plants vs. Zombies. Preço justo pelo conteúdo. Pedida certa para fãs do gênero ou para os interessados em conhecê-lo.

Great little Tower Defense style game with RPG elements. Beautiful visuals, awesome rock soundtrack, addictive gameplay. I don't know if it's just me, but it reminds me a lot of Plants vs. Zombies. Fair price for the content. Must buy for TD fans or if you wanna try it out.

Bardbarian é um jogo sandbox em que você assume o papel de um bárbaro somado com um bardo "BardBarian" (para quem não sabe um bardo é aqueles músicos das idades antigas)

Seu objetivo é proteger um pequeno reino que esta sobre constante ataque de vááárias e vááárias ondas de inimigos, a cada onda vai ficando mais complicado e vai aparecendo inimigos com diferentes habilidades.
Para proteger este reino, você usa sua guitarra para tocar diferentes sons, com essas musicas que você toca, você invoca/chama novos reforços e pode ativar buffs e melhorias para você, suas unidades e o Reino.

Já ouvi pessoas comparando este jogo com um tower defence... mas sei lá... não vejo muito TD nesse jogo.
Você na verdade apenas contrata tropas que ficam seguindo seu personagem, essas tropas atacam as unidades inimigas próximas, seu bardbarian ganha XP conforme avança nas ondas e mata inimigos, e com esse XP upa suas tropas e compra novas habilidades e melhorias...
Então basicamente seu único objetivo é andar pelo mapa tentando desviar dos ataques inimigos e fazendo suas tropas atacarem automaticamente as unidades próximas...
Ao meu falar o jogo pode parecer monótono não é? Mas é ai que você se engana...
Ele é muito divertido e viciante, você sempre tem vontade de passar mais uma onda e conseguir mais dinheiro e XP.
Recomendo-o com toda certeza :D

O jogo conta com uns outros modos de jogo, como sobrevivência e uma espécie de corrida em que seu personagem segue uma linha reta com vários obstáculos...
Alem do modo Hardcore que é 10x mais difícil que o modo normal de jogo.

O jogo conta com algumas referencias a outras jogos indies que achei interessantes :P

As gráficas do jogo são 2D cartunizados, é um estilo que achei muito simpático.

VALHAAALA!!!

Esse bárbaro, é insano, faz uma espécie de Air Guitar com um machado! hahaha
E os recursos do jogo? Você tem um bêbado que vomita no chão, para diminuir a velocidade dos oponentes.
O sistema de jogo é simples, você apenas corre, mas seus aliados atacam enquanto te seguem.

Os personagens: você tem a enfermeira, o arqueiro, o mago, o guerreiro e outros personagens que você pode desbloquear ao longo do jogo, como o grande meat boy de Super meat boy, ou o octodad de Octodad: Dadliest Catch.

Você pode reforçar seus ataques com solos de guitarra, ou defesa e velocidade, e precisa proteger sua base que é uma espécie de jóia gigante!

Lembrando que essas melhorias, são skills.

Recomendo se pagar pouco, pois é bem divertido.

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
