+Morjax Plays has been playing through 10 Minute Barbarian on YouTube.  He sent me this clip from the Raider's Road episode.  It gets kind of Spiderman 3-y in there.

My game, 10 Minute Barbarian is now available on Steam!  Hooray!

GameWatcher.com called it "wonderfully simple to pick up while being mightily difficult to put down".  _Rock Paper Shotgun_ said "“It is madness. It’s wonderful.” 

Come on down and play it today!

I don't suppose a version for SteamOS is coming? (I did really enjoy the demo.)

This is a battle from 10 Minute Barbarian, a game I've been working on for a while.

In this case, the dragon is "improved", so he's doing quite a bit of damage to the enemy archers.

I'm launching this game very soon---within the next two weeks.  Check it out:

+Chad Walker  Pretty soon.  Not 100% sure on release date, but I'm getting to the end of it.

Introducing Vulkan - a new 3D rendering API

This week at SIGGRAPH 2015, we will present our efforts to bring a new 3D rendering API, Vulkan, to Android, with the goal of helping address some of the sources of CPU overhead and provide developers with more explicit control over rendering. Like OpenGL ES, Vulkan is an open standard maintained by Khronos.

Hello, crew of interesting Google+ people! I've been working on this game, 10 Minute Barbarian, with help friends and family. (Thanks!) It's strategy gaming in a hurry.

If you're curious, you can play the demo in your browser.

Demo: http://studiopuffer.appspot.com/demo/10mb.html
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAXItD3YPhA
Greenlight: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=459593553

It's about exploring, building an army, and attacking castle walls while dragons rain fire down upon you, all in about ten minutes. Top feedback is that it takes longer than 10 minutes if you get into it, which is hard to refute.

I'm going for Steam, so if you like the demo, feel free to vote up. That'd be totally nifty.

10 Minute Barbarian makes Polygon! Justin gives a great overview of the game.

Hooray!
Watch on YouTube | Subscribe to Polygon on YouTube My favorite moment in any RTS is when I've amassed a giant force and I draw a big box around my entire army and smash it into a single enemy....

Here's a battle from my game, 10 Minute Barbarian, where the good guys in blue have leveled-up "super" dragons, and they make short work of the enemy phalanx.

10 Minute Barbarian is coming out on Steam on Wednesday, Jan 27th for Windows and Mac!

The Necromancer from 10 Minute Barbarian.  You won't meet him in the demo, but he'll battle you in the final game (due out one of these days!).

Nice! I'm always amazed at the detail and liveliness great pixel artists can get out of extremely restrictive sizes and palettes. 

I'm going for a similar aesthetic style in a voxel (real voxel, not textured cube) roguelike I'm working on. If you have a circle you post this stuff to I'd love to be added.

Whoa, Rock Paper Shotgun.  Neat!
Some people say that Hemingway's short poem "For sale: baby shoes, never worn" is great because of the enormous size of a story it hints at in such minimalist

The themes and decorations were fun, puzzles were good and fair, and we just had a great time (six people, all but one were experienced puzzlers). I have played two other escape-the-room live games, and this was the best I've done so far. Pharaoh's Curse is done by flashlight, which is very clever.
