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Please be advised, that this game might not run very well on outdated hardware, since it takes quite a bit of horsepower to render the awesomeness of this game.

omg best game BEST
It was decent, the only thing, unless I'm missing something.. there's no "quit" option that I could see so I alt-f4'd out on windows.. and I would kind of like to turn the music off, I couldn't find a way to do it.. only reason I even wanted that was because I was watching something while toying with it, sometimes it would be nice to mute in-game music without having to go out of the game and muting everything :)
I'm a fan of Jack, but I didn't find you from that.. I just started scouring itch.io myself after updating my gaming system.. happened upon this .. thumbs up!
You can quit by hitting the pause button on the bottom left side of the screen while on your next customer. You can turn down the music and stuff in options or hit main menu to got to the menu. You can quit from there.
this is amazing when i watched jacksepticeye when he played it and it was funny so im playing it now.
Did a let's play of this game - it was fun but I was soooo annoyed that I couldn't shave a patch without cutting the dude's ear.
I watched Jacksepticeye play it and it was hilarious! Huge fan of him, wanted to check it out, I did, loved it!
cant play idk why
Quicker download is my expectation for everything I dowload. I was very board waiting for it to download and install. When it was finally in the system ,I didn't even want to play it
I downloaded this game and have been playing for around half an hour now, and I feel I've done everything there is to do. I'm aware it's a simulator and there's not meant to be endless fun content, but I expected a little more.
My main issue encompasses two in one. Firstly, there's no proper instruction as to what the different meters mean. The player can assume what each of them mean, but I still have no idea what the second meter means. There have been times I've taken longer to complete a shave and been awarded a higher score for that meter, and there have been times I've tested a super quick shave and gotten a low score.
Secondly, if it IS a speed meter, I feel that it puts far too much pressure on the player to rush shaves. This is a simulator, and it's a short game. You need to allow players to get as much out of the game as they can. Encouraging players to "complete" the game as quickly as possible only goes against you as a developer.
My advice would be to get rid of the grading altogether. Keep the immersion, and have the customer leave a tip based on back-end performance checks. One of the biggest draws of this game for me is the feel of the place, and having a big score sheet at the end of every shave just breaks that feeling for me.
With all the above being said, this has fantastic potential. Tweak/remove the "speed" meter, increase immersion, and really push the 40's/50's American aesthetic.
