Very minimalist. It could use a score counter and some obstacles or enemies. Best beard animation in the jam so far.

This is a very nice beard :D I think that playing with layers to make the beard grow not only from behind but within the sprite would have make the render even better.

It looks absolutely gorgeous and has great feel to it. The music sounds fantastic too, a nice blend of modern and "viking". The growing beard does look a bit weird though, as though a chain of beardlet particles is dangling from his throat.

My main gripe is that there is very little gameplay here. No challenge, no choices except how I choose to trim the beard (but there isn't a lot of freedom in this respect, as the top bit is painted on), no winning or losing.

(Did you see Tijn's barber game by any chance? It shows how to do gameplay, and how not to do all the other things ;))

Edit: could you update your entry to add the Mobile platform? For statistics and discoverability!

"There was a problem parsing the package."
(Android 4.4.2, that's probably the problem!)

Watched the video instead. The audio visuals are nice. Interactivity seems quite pointless, maybe it feels good though. I don't know.

Can't give ratings without trying it proper.
