Description
Release date: Early 2018
A Beard-Bending Adventure Awaits!

Beard Blade is a 2D action platformer inspired by SNES, Genesis and GBA legends. Attack, glide, throw, push, climb and more using your beard to get you through hairy situations, or switch up your beard style to change the way you play. Master every move to get through several challenging levels, each packed to the brim with enemies and secrets. Carefully comb through every area to restore all of the village's lost treasures as well as your own personal belongings.

When a quaint seaside town is invaded by imps, a humble bearded farmer assumes the role as hero and chases them back to their vile isle. After an unsuccessful attempt to reclaim the stolen goods, our hero is thrown into a fortress dungeon and left for dead. Amongst a group of hostages attempting to escape, Branson meets a reformed wizard-turned-barber who enchants his beard as a last-ditch effort, granting him amazing new abilities that allow the captives to flee through the dungeon's sewer. Now aptly dubbed "Beard Blade," our hero sets forth to thwart the imps and uncover the truth behind a dark secret...
