Status Update--We passed Greenlight!
30% Off this Week, Not on Steam Sale!
Release date: OUT NOW!
Updated -- Tiny Barbarian DX is out! The first episode can be purchased at You'll get the first episode, the future episodes when they become available, and if we make it to Steam via Greenlight, you'll get a Steam Key, too!

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.

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.

Tiny Barbarian was also a free game that you can still get, right 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.

This game is frustrating. Has potential but not worth the $10
