Inspired by pulp fantasy (Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian, in particular), Tiny Barbarian stars a 17-pixel-tall warrior on an episodic quest, during which he will "ride a bumblebee," "bite a vulture," and "outsmart a puma made of liquid metal," among other outlandish feats. A gameplay sample is available here. The new combat system looks like a lot of fun!
Tiny Barbarian DX's funding goal is set at $12,000. Backer rewards include downloadable copies of the game ($8), buttons ($35), physical boxed editions ($70), and backer-specific Easter Eggs that may never be discovered by other players ($500).
