What's a barbarian to do when bad guys steal his girl and tie him to a tree? Bust free and go on a rampage! It's time to jump, sword, and climb your way to vengeance, and that's just the beginning. Tiny Barbarian DX is not just one adventure, but a series of self-contained episodes inspired by sword and sorcery short stories of yore (think Conan the Barbarian), delivered in the format of a 2D action game with retro-style graphics.

At this time, one story is nearing completion, with three others planned to follow, provided backing for the game can be found. Currently, the the game can be backed on Kickstarter, and hopefully it will make the jump to Steam, too!

Here's a list of some of the outrageous feats that await you in Tiny Barbarian DX:

Fight endless hordes of evil (or just misguided) warriors.
Wack a gnome until gold comes out.
Flee from a giant serpent.
Defeat a huge, fire-breathing parrot.
Ride a bumblebee.
Ascend a wizard's magical tower.
Save the most beautiful ladies that can fit into a 16x16 pixel box.
Bite a vulture.
End the reign of snake-worshiping cultists.
Outsmart a puma made of liquid metal.
Battle white apes on an airship.
Eat chicken you found in the garbage.



The original game Here
Since the original design, a number of improvements have been made. The combo system has been given an overhaul, allowing for new attacks and easier inputs for a smoother, more aggressive playstyle. Tiny himself has been redrawn, still tiny, but beefier and with a range of new moves, including a ledge-grab, an earth-shaking elbo drop, and the ability to ride on suitable mounts, like the snarly cat shown in the above video, and numerous other fine adjustments.

If you love barbarians, classic games, and arcade action, then you're going to love Tiny Barbarian!

I played the original Tiny Barbarian when it was featured on indiegames.com/blog a long time ago. It was fun. I would buy this.

They were promised, I guess the developers are just busy with other things right now.
