Castle Crashing: The Beard is a homage to the XBLA game Castle Crashers. It offers a taste of the gameplay although the featured content does not appear in the final game as it was conceived by a different team of developers. The title's theme is centered around Tom Fulp, a developer from The Behemoth working on the full game who vowed not to shave his beard until the release of the game. This inspired co-workers at Newgrounds, a flash games portal Tom Fulp created, to design a game around the concept.

Players take on the flying face of Tom Fulp (with a huge beard) using one of the knights from the Castle Crashers game. Tom uses his beard to attack and occasionally loafs of bread are dropped from the sky. The player can move around, jump platforms and attack with a single weapon. There is also a limited amount of magic that is automatically restored. Hitting a tombstone or the bearded face in succession leads to combos with additional damage. After a certain set of hits, the player's knight upgrades to a new form, with a new weapon and magic. There are four forms in total, each with a different colour and a more powerful weapon. When Tom Fulp has been defeated, he transforms into a flying skull with an entirely different attack pattern. The player has two additional lives and can take multiple hits before dying.
