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,

Acerca de este juego


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.

Bardbarian es un port de un juego de iOS y que, se trae consigo casi el mismo contenido pero con algunas mejoras graficas, cameos tontos (en el buen sentido) a otras franquicias de videojuegos y sobre todo unidades extras de la escena indie de PC.

Básicamente este es un juego tipo "defensa de torres" en el cual tendremos que invocar ciertas unidades (dependiendo del costo que ellos precisen) para eliminar hordas de enemigos aunque al contrario de la tipica mecanica del juego, podremos movernos libremente siendo una especie de "torreta movil" con la que nuestros compañeros se moveran al unisono.

Como el diseño de juego es pensado para los videojuegos para celulares, hay ciertas cosas que podrias ver familiar como por ejemplo la adiccion que produce ya que, dentro de todo, es disfrutable. Lo más criticable al respecto es que el juego da un salto increible de dificultad en los primeros niveles (o mas concretamente luego del primer jefe) obligandonos a jugar otros modos de juego para recolectar dinero y asi mejorar y comprar nuevas unidades que iremos desbloqueando.

Podría haber mucho más contenido para la vida media del mismo, pero cumple con lo prometido.

7/10

Al principio no me llamaba nada la atención, pero tras jugar un rato engancha bastante. Es un juego para echarle unas horas, tampoco te durará demasiado. Lo recomiendo para jugar con mando

Un juego estilo towe defense algo distinto a los demás! y como las cobinaciones son diversas y puedes irte moviendo libremente, le añade dinámica a lo típico de defenderte de oleadas. lástima que no haya más tipos de unidades y que la música no vaya variando. 8/10

Divertido, simple y entretenido, unos logros fáciles de conseguir, y unos gráficos muy bien elaborados.
Lo recomiendo a todo aquél que quiera pasar unas horas sin tener que pensar mucho. Ya que es el típico juego que te encuentras en minijuegos donde debes jugar para obtener mejoras, y aún así, lo recomiendo a todos(as).

PD: sinceramente si antes de empezar a jugarlo leéis ésto, os recomiendo que vayáis directamente a pasaros el juego en modo difícil(insane)porque en modo difícil sacas el dinero mucho más rápido(simplemente por el hecho de que aparecen más unidades), y obtienes las mejoras con mayor eficacia.

PD2: los primero que deberíais mejorar es el hacha dorada, para conseguir el oro con una presteza mucho superior a la normal.

¡Espero que lo disfrutéis!

Bardbarian es un juego simple y ameno, bueno para echar ratos sin pensar demasiado y relajarte un poco.

Con una mecanica simple de oleadas de enemigos, encarnas a un bardo guerrero que utiliza su hacha-laúd para entonar solos de guitarra. Con ellos puedes invocar aliados que te seguirán y atacarán a tus enemigos, y tambien puedes potenciar temporalmente a tu grupo para que haga mas daño, tenga mas armadura o sea mas rápido.
El objetivo del juego es ir venciendo oleada tras oleada (hasta un máximo de 20) a todos los enemigos para proteger la gema del pueblo, la cual si es destruida, dará la partida por terminada. Cada 5 oleadas aperecerá un jefe que te pondrá las cosas difíciles.
El oro que recoges te sirve para comprar potenciadores permanentes tanto para todas tus habilidades como para mejorar las caracteristicas de tus aliados y de los edificios del pueblo.

Podría catalogar Bardbarian como una especie de tower defense, aunque aqui no puedes colocar trampas ni armas, tan solo llevar contigo un numero limitado de aliados. La energía o maná del juego son notas musicales, que consigues derrotando enemigos o generándolas automáticamente manteniendote quieto en el sitio.

Los gráficos son muy graciosos, muy estilo cartoon. Tiene una variedad adecuada de enemigos con diferentes comportamientos y tipos de ataque, y los jefes son duros de pelar. La musica es buena, no se hace repetitiva y tiene mucho ritmo. Le da mucha gracia al juego.
Como extra posee dos modos de juegos alternativos, uno de supervivencia, donde debes aguantar todo lo que puedas sin poder invocar aliados (solo los recoges segun van apareciendo) y uno de carrera, donde debes intentar llegar lo mas lejos posible huyendo de un muro de bestias y esquivando enemigos y disparos.

Bardbarian no tiene mayor pretensión que hacer pasar un buen rato, siendo entrenido, dificil hasta cierto punto. No espereis un juegazo triple A, pero si teneis muchos ratos libres sin nada que hacer y os apetece una partidita, estaría bien probarlo. Si lo comprais en una rebaja, mejor que mejor.

Valoración: 6,5 / 10

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; there are 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.

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

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

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

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!

I took a chance on this game cuz it was on sale on Humble Bundle, I looked at it and fell in love with the art style, and then i Played it and liked it even more, i havent played a tower defense like this game, and im a fan of the genre, if you enjoy grinding for upgrades and those type of games this is a game for you, if youre a casual gamer its also a nice game, I reccommend this game.

This game is tons of fun! You can easily get lost in it for a good amount of time.

Although It sort of has a grindy feel to it, kill enemies - get coins - die - upgrade - fight more, etc.. It is very fun and can be quite challenging as you get towards the harder enemies before you've upgraded your hero and his units. It is quite rewarding though, as you try to survive and unlock more characters and better stats for your group and battle area.

Good Fun, Do Recommend.
