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,
Treefortress Games

À propos de ce jeu


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.

Vraiment moyen. On joue un rôle assez passif au final; esquiver/invoquer/buffer. Sur une seule map, avec des vagues de monstres déséquilibrées. C'est vite répétitif et impossible de skipper les riffs du personnage; à la longue, c'est saoulant.

Petit jeu très sympa, facilement accrocheur
Le seul bémol étant le peu de contenu mais pour le prix il en vaut largement la peine

Petit jeu très sympa, ça se sent que ça vient d'un jeu de portable mais on se prend vite au commande de ce ptit barde qui doit sauver son village.
Que ce soit au clavier ou à la manette, la maniabilité est simple et facile, musique qui peut ennuyer au bout d'un moment, les boss, améliorations et persos à débloquer sont bien cools plus les autres mini jeux proposés.

Bon jeu à tous !

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.
