Nicalis Inc., a publisher known for its work on games such as The Binding of Isaac, 1001 Spikes and Cave Story today announced a partnership with StarQuail Games to publish 2D action platformer Tiny Barbarian DX.

Tiny Barbarian DX is one Barbarian’s “Sword-‘em-Up” quest for vengeance. Inspired by heroic fiction classics, Tiny’s journey offers a musclebound medley of engaging 2D platforming and 16-bit inspired pixel art, complemented by a catchy chiptune soundtrack. The action is broken into four individual episodes—not unlike fantasy stories in pulp magazines—each boasting its own unique setting, enemies and music.

Features of Tiny Barbarian DX

? Fast and addictive 2D platforming: leap, grab, hang, ride and climb past a plethora of perilous platforms and pitfalls

? Varied swordplay: Flay enemies with savage swordplay and finish off foes by skillfully ending three-button combos with a Sword Dash, the Spinning Sword or a Ground Slam

? Unique locales: muscle through four distinct episodes, each spanning across various landscapes including a snake worshipping temple, the mysterious Ruins of Xanadu, an altitudinous Sinister Spire and beyond!

? Bad bosses: use Barbarian brutality, brains and dexterity against epic bosses. Boss battles will truly test players’ ability to master Tiny’s skills!

? Exclusive content: included with the game on top of the main episodes is also an additional bonus episode , The Domain of the Ice Queen!

Developed by StarQuail Games and published by Nicalis, Tiny Barbarian DX is currently in development for consoles.
