New version of My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant now live

Seven years after its initial release and five years after the last update, version 1.12 of My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant is now available!

My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant is a gay-themed sci-fi adventure game with artwork by award winning artist Joe Phillips and is a prequel to Escape from Pleasure Planet.

The update is free for existing owners of the game, you boldfaced minxes.

Key features:
  • Save games load much faster
  • Animated text
  • Hardware accelerated graphics
  • Lots of new writing mostly in the side plots (main plot is unchanged)
  • Same engine version as Escape from Pleasure Planet (three years of improvements)
  • Scaling effect along the z-axis
  • Dozens of bug fixes
  • New path planning
  • Some updated art and animations
  • Reworked some scenes to even out tone of game
  • Quality of life improvements like inspect inventory items
  • Support for more types of monitors
  • Controller support
  • Return of the linux version
  • The console on startup is gone
  • New build process for windows/mac/linux to support more computers

Basically every line of code has been touched in some way. It's definitely been a work of love. Old save games aren't supported but players can switch back to the previous version of the game on Steam using the "classic" beta channel.

Share and Enjoy!*


* "Share and Enjoy" is, of course, the company motto of the hugely successful Sirius Cybernetics Corporation Complaints division, which now covers the major land masses of three medium sized planets and is the only part of the Corporation to have shown a consistent profit in recent years.

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.

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

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
