Introduction

My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant is a traditional point-and-click adventure but stands out for its gay cast and eye-catching visuals.

On the surface, the storyline is standard science fiction fare: you play as retired space captain Tycho Minogue, dragged back into active service in order to foil the nefarious plans of a powerful interplanetary tyrant who is taking his fleet from world to world, subjugating the free people of the galaxy. But there are twists! A tale of love, loss and adventure spread over three planets and several lightyears, My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant is the gayest game ever made.

Some Key Features

  • Full length gay themed point-and-click adventure game
  • A superb blend of comedy, drama, romance and mystery
  • Artwork by award winning artist Joe Phillips
  • Over 70 scenes and 40 characters
  • Source included
  • Accessibility options for vision and hearing impaired players

What The Fans Are Saying

Thank you for a wonderful game playing experience, and the fact that it was a 'gay game' made it ever so much more enjoyable for this gay player. - John

I'd like to compliment you on the game, My Ex-boyfriend the Space Tyrant. I enjoyed the artwork, the tongue-in-cheekiness, and the sense of a campy space-adventure. It's nice to have a gay-centric game, especially since most games are heavily influenced to appeal to the straight guy-gamer. - Jason

It's a whole lot of fun, as a gay guy this is the game I've wanted to play all my life! - Brian

The Good

- Has a nice space-camp feel to it that's reminiscent of the old Space Quest games.
- Finally a game geared toward homosexual men (although perhaps it's relevant to mention that I am not gay myself.)
- The dialogue is very short and to the point.


The Bad

- Not very well animated. Many of the characters don't even have animations.
- No voice acting.
- The writing seems very lazy. Many times when I observed a hotspot in a scene I got the default "Nothing interesting here."
- Very Glitchy. The game froze up on me twice and one of those times I had forgot to save in a while. There was also a problem where my character would just walk off the screen and this happened a lot.
- Short length and the ending seemed very rushed.
- Too much sexual innuendo that just isn't very funny

Perhaps it's breaking ground here with it's gay themes but that aside it's really not that good of a game. It feels like a very cheap novelty.

My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant is a decent point and click game. Gay jokes may get few laughs. But this is something you play online for free in flash game sites. The game feels very cheap so over 10 dollar price tag sounds greedy. If the game gets a big price drop and you happen to like gay jokes, you can give it a try.

The gameplay is rather simple, even for a point and click game. You can't even click away after making a move choice. However so far of what I've played, I've enjoyed the story, and I am loving the little jokes (some sexual, some normal) that are within the game, and I love the inneundo lift :D

Haven't played enough yet to comment on if the price is justfied, etc. But I like what ive seen so far :)

***Updated***

On further playing, clicking too many times on things (when getting impatient) can cause the game to crash, and you lose all your progress (because of no autosave ¬_¬)

There isnt a massive amount of bugs, but the one or two I have found, are so terribly game breaking, that I cannot recommend this game, if it was under £5 then maybe I could, but the current cost is too high for what it is.

Lets just say I was actually looking forward to this game. Being a fan of John Waters, I was attracted to what I thought would be "campy". In my humble oppinion, this doesnt even have much "camp".

This game is like buying a novelty from a sex shop. You're never going to actually use it. It's a joke.

The game itself lacks any actual gameplay. I grew up playing Space Quest games, and other point and click's. This has no puzzles. If any of it was intended to be puzzling, then it was really easy. The comedy is decent, i'm a huge fan of the innuendo lift, but it really stops there for me.

After playing the game for 1.5 hours, I hit a gamebreaking bug. Cannot restore save file. So, I sent my troubleshoots to the dev. I was shocked to actually get a respone.....but here I am almost 2 weeks later and I still do not have a fix for this horribly overpriced novelty of a game.

I am all for supporting gay games, but this is just a disgrace. I do not suggest anyone spend money on this, it is a halfassed game.
