I somehow missed indie platformer Tiny Barbarian, an adorable little package that was based on Conan the Barbarian tale The Frost-Giant's Daughter. For that, I am very upset, because its follow-up looks lovely.
It's called Tiny Barbarian DX, and if you asked me to imagine the lovechild of Gauntlet and Cave Story, is probably what I'd be picturing.
The original is free to download and play here. I've since caught up on my oversight, and am having a blast.
You can keep up with the development of DX at the game's official site, below.
