Reviews

“It has a sense of scale that belongs in an epic feature film or novel.”
9.5/10 – Bago Games

“If you enjoy a considered and crafted story then Tahira: Echoes of the Astral Empire is definitely for you.”
79/100 – Pixel Pop Network

“This is not an epic fantasy power trip, but the brutal struggle of a people driven from their home and on the verge of extinction, led by a princess still young and afraid, but forced to fight and lead or else abandon her people to certain death.”
9/10 – Kritiqal

About This Game

A thousand years after the fall of a spacefaring empire, a young princess named Tahira travels the far reaches of her barren kingdom, alone but for her trusty horse, Iba.

When word reaches her of an army wielding the devastating technologies of the past, she finds herself thrust into the most challenging night of her life as she fights to become the leader her people desperately need.

Experience the epic coming of age story of a young woman, told in near-real-time across a 12-hour period in this tactical turn-based adventure.
