Bardbarian is the latest game from TreeFortress, a small team of game devs based out of Edmonton, Canada whose goal is simple. Make cool games and have fun doing it! Their first release Bardbarian, landed on iOS and the Amazon app store not long ago but they've now gone ahead and released it for BlackBerry 10 as well.

You play as Brad the barbarian, who is awoken to the sounds of his town under siege. Today is different though. Brad has grown tired of fighting all the time. The usual grind for XP has grown dull, and he has decided to pursue his dreams of making music instead of shedding blood. 

Fashioning a lute out of an old axe, he steps out to save his town through musical inspiration.  Use your magical Axe-Lute to summon followers to fight for you. Navigate your party through the hordes of enemies, dodging and attacking, preventing them from destroying your town's prized decorative crystal. Survive waves to progress, collect loot, and unlock new units.   

Upon death you are able to visit the town shop in order to upgrade Brad, the town and your followers, in hopes to make it further next time. Finished story mode? Play Endless and Survival modes for some fun, fast and competitive gameplay variety, set your best scores and challenge your friends! 

Thus far, the game has been getting some fantastic reviews across the board and we plan on taking some time to give you all a further look at but for now, we just wanted to let you all know it was available. Bardbarian is priced at $2.99 in BlackBerry World and supports all BlackBerry 10 devices. Give the trailer a look and see if it's something you might dig and stay tuned for our hands-on later.

You want game developers to go away, especially ones that are dedicated to the BlackBerry 10 platform? Your comment makes very little sense, unless by go away you mean you're upset you have to spend another $2.99 to by a fantastic little game. :P

I watched the promo and it showed it was an android Thing,So!!!

Well now you're just being ridiculous.

We’re a small team of game devs based out of Edmonton, operating under the loving wing of our parent company, gskinner. We’re just beginning, so our goal is simple: Make cool games and have fun doing it! Initially we’re targeting Android, iOS and BB10.

Way to make a lasting impression on a development company who just released their first game on BB10 instead of Google Play.

Ya, we didn't get around to cutting a new version of the trailer with the BB logo, but don't worry, it's a native BB10 App :D (well technically Adobe AIR)

Speaking of paying, CB should come up with promo codes for new developers. Examples: At the end of a new review, you list a promo code good for 25% off the cost of the app good for the first 1000 downloads etc.. That way news apps get quick uptake and plenty of reviews hopefully and people will know to come to Crackberry for sweet deals on BlackBerry apps! A win-win!
