A downloadable game for Windows

Hello there!

Barbershop Simulator is a indie game developed by small team of game design students.

Upon releasing a build of the game, we were overwhelmed by the massive resonance we were greeted by. People started playing it and making youtube videos, some of which racked up over a million views over night. We had not anticipated this type of response and feel incredibly fortunate and grateful.

We now want to iron out all the kinks, expand on the game's feature set and rework parts of the game design to ultimately release a fully featured version of the game.

Check out a Let's Play video...

In order to receive the funding to continue development, we have created a crowd funding page for the game. The game will always remain a free download but we would like to allow fans to support development so that we can build new features and release updated versions in the future.

If you would like to support us, please head over to http://pledge.barbershopsimulator.com and help us out. Ever bit is appreciated!

Install instructions

All you have to do is extract the zip file and launch "tbs.exe"

Please be advised, that this game might not run very well on outdated hardware, since it takes quite a bit of horsepower to render the awesomeness of this game.

This game has good potential but the controls are horrific, most of the time it doesnt always shave where you want it to. Also, you just keep doing the same shave over and over again so the game got quickly boring for me, such a shame!

I got the game to play but the pause and finish buttons don't work no matter how much I click

fortnite uh


The premise is great, if you made the graphics on your own, you are awesome. The style, J. R. Bob Dobbs looking guys in the bottom right, made the art style stick out. 

This game is fun to play for 30 minutes, but then it gets boring. I would love to see this game become a full game, but the whole gameplay repeats after an hour. 

Adding something new everytime would make this game more fun. All of the hair and beard styles repeat after some time, you could add an earthquake after a few days which messes up the hairstyle, your store getting closed down for legal reasons if you do something illegal. Even clown hairstyles, colored hairstyles would be appreciated. Just a little something every week to spice the game up. 

Just add something to consume the player for a long time. These customers faces never get old though. You could leave these evil emotions for extra humor.

If you will expand this game, a lot of people would be interested in playing or replaying this game.

But you probably abandoned this game, the website is down and no updates for a year. Hope you enjoy this game!

Everything glitches out and green and pink bars flash and ruin the screen. Any idea how to fix this?

Edit: it also says: While handling UE4 prereqs: UE4 prereq installation failed

HERE'S HOW TO PLAY THE GAME IN OLDER COMPUTERS WITH OK PERFORMANCE AFTER DOING THIS.

OK !!! GREAT GAME. HERE'S A LITTLE FAQ, IF YOU CAN READ THIS THEN DO THE FOLLOWING:

IF YOUR PC IS AVERAGE-ISH AND NOT VERY GOOD, LOOK FOR A FILE CALLED "DEFAULGAMEUSERSETTINGS.INI". THIS IS GENERALLY LOCATED IN ".../TBS/TBS/CONFIG", OR WHEREVER YOUR GAME IS INSTALLED/LOCATED. OPEN THIS FILE AND PASTE THE FOLLOWING SETTINGS INSIDE IT (USE A TEXT EDITOR LIKE NOTEPAD AND ASSOCIATE .INI FILES BY CLICKING WITH THE RIGHT MOUSE BUTTON ON IT, THEN "OPEN WITH" SELECT NOTEPAD AND IT SHALL BE SET FOR ANY OTHER TIME. IF IT ISN'T SIMPLY RIGHT CLICK ON IT, THEN SELECT "OPEN WITH"... SELECT NOTE PAD OR SIMILAR):

[/Script/Engine.GameUserSettings]
 bUseVSync=False
 ResolutionSizeX=640
 ResolutionSizeY=480
 LastUserConfirmedResolutionSizeX=640
 LastUserConfirmedResolutionSizeY=480
 WindowPosX=-1
 WindowPosY=-1
 bUseDesktopResolutionForFullscreen=False
 FullscreenMode=1
 LastConfirmedFullscreenMode=1
 Version=5

AFTER DONE SAVE THE FILE WITH THE SAME NAME (SIMPLY SELECT SAVE).  THIS SHOULD DRASTICALLY REDUCE THE GAME RESOLUTION AND RUN IN MORE MODEST CONFIGURATIONS, LAPTOPS, INTEL GRAPHICS CARD, YOU NAME IT. BE AWARE THAT BY DOING SO, THE QUALITY IS ALSO REDUCED, BUT IT'S NECESSARY TO RUN WITH LESS RESOURCES AND BOOST IMAGE PERFORMANCE. ALSO, FOR PLAYING, SINCE OLDER PCS ARE MORE SLUGGISH OVERALL, SIMPLY KEEP HOLDING THE LEFT MOUSE BUTTON AND EVENTUALLY YOU'LL START SHAVING/CLIPPING BASED ON RAZOR OR CLIPPER. HAVE FUN !!!

what a great game

NICE! game

nice downloading takes 4 years

I know right, XD

I can't seem to get out of full screen, does anyone know how?

press alt+enter

It's pretty fun, but gets repetitive and has a few odd bugs. The ratings seem pretty off as well, but overall, a fun game with a lot of potential!

You know, I thought this would be kind of boring or repetitive, but in the end I had an absolute blast. There is something very satisfying about watching the hair disappear, not sure why. It also has to be said, especially for a free game, the graphics are great. Incredible job, props to the devs.

SOOOOOO SLOOOOOOOOW.  The description said that an outdated PC wouldn't work, but my PC is brand new and it still didn't work.  lame.

 Du kannst dir auch neue PCs kaufen wo schrott sind also ist deiner ein haufen schrott

Any computer you would get from a scrap yard would just be some clunky old box with a monitor attached to it.

Love the Zappa reference! 

Me too!

this game isis 

Played this game a while back but never actually recorded it. 

Game is really nice rly enjoyed trimming the beards and making new beard styles. 

It's interesting to see if you have a low end PC eyebrows don't show up, but still the gameplay is fun! :D 

Game looks great but whenever I try to play it it takes a really long time to load and slows my computer down a bunch, and when it's finally done loading the screen looks all glitched out and flashes with light purple and yellow or green and black making it completely unplayable. I tried closing it and re opening it, didn't work, I tried changing the settings in some way, didn't work. No idea why this happens, it's really disappointing.

I have the same problem, has anyone figured out how to fix it?

no anda el juego es una mierda  este juego

where is the makeup cosmetics for men and why we are portrayed so ugly and disgusting in the game , i just cant find an beauty man because some people think that beauty is only for woman , that creepy  beauty is for me too as a man , stop portrayng me in games  in a ugly disgusting gross way

(+2)

why are you so triggered lmao the game is not supposed to be all cute and pretty. actually stfu men aren't 'portrayed so ugly and disgusting', you probably just think that because you're portrayed as that. get a hold of yourself, meninist trash.
