10-Minute Barbarian is just the good parts of RTS games

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. While satisfying, I understand that this is not always the most effective strategy. But in 10-Minute Barbarian from Studio Puffer, it's the only strategy.

With almost no resource management and a souped-up pace, 10-Minute Barbarian is all about snatching up as many soldiers as you can find and blasting through the opposition. Oh, and with every step you take, you hasten the apocalypse, as I taught Nick Robinson in the video above. The game released on Steam for Mac and PC last week, but you can play a demo in your browser right here.
