In a world where reality blends with dreams, an ancient revolting and unmentionable evil has woken up, bringing with it death and chaos. Only courage, force and steel can bring back order. Age of Barbarian is a side scrolling game that mixes many different elements together: Role Play Game, Platform and Hack'n Slash. It takes, reconsiders and amplifies the original concept of games such as Moonstone and the Barbarian series, mixing in elements from Prince of Persia. Aside from the battles, there are zones to explore, traps to avoid and even small riddles to solve. Age of Barbarian is strongly inspired by Robert E. Howard's world of Conan and its representation by the great illustrator Frank Frazetta and has an added splash of horror.

I understand that the game is on a 2D plane, but having the jump button to 'up' is not user friendly. Also any plans to make the character move faster, as it stands it is slow. Making the combat similar to old hack n' slash from the 16bit era would be great, but the jump button needs to change.

This looks.... pretty bad.

It looks kinda like tha characters were made with poser, and the controls look about as stiff as the original Prince Of Persia.

Can you guys at least rework it. As it stands it is a very bad DRM.

We found a problem with the Desura installer.

About the DRM the game requires the serial only once. You need an Internet connection just for execute the game, after the game is launched, you can also turn off internet.

That's still way too much!
