Space Tyrant sound track now available!

Ladies and space germs! At long last, Skaven has chosen to bestow upon us his most tyrannical sound track! These ravaging melodies will take you back to that time you thrashed 3 space hamsters in a row - or when you took the Senate homeworld with only one frigate left. Such glory was yours and this most undeniable of soundtracks has arrived to help you wallow in it as often as you like.

Go get it on bandcamp and clench that fiery fist!:

A 33% off sale that comes with ultra-wide support!

Fearsome Tyrants! Also, curious potential Tyrants feeling attracted to that flashy Tyrant lifestyle!

This first day of May is bringing not only an unprecedented 33% off sale to Space Tyrant, but it’s coming with an update for those of you with ultra-wide monitor setups.

You heard that right - if you have a monitor that stretches out to a dizzying 21:9 aspect ratio (and other hi-res configurations), your in-game Tyranting experience will all but wrap around your head. It must be noted, this is a partial ultra-wide support update. That means the front-end of the game remains at the standard 16:9 and 16:10 aspect ratios. Your loadout, your mission select screen, all of that good stuff must remain fixed to the old ways. But hooooooo baby! Once you get into a game, all of that wideness will be yours to wide-out on!

And i should reiterate the really important part of this - it’s 33% off until May 15th at 10am PST! It’s our biggest sale ever and it’s gonna hang around and stare at you for 2 full weeks!

“get some Tyranting in your life… entire star systems await your fiery grip… 33% off… dooooooo iiiiiiit” - will be the not-so-subliminal message issuing forth from that incendiary Tyrant skull for the next couple of weeks.

And be sure to visit the forums if you have questions or any brutal victories you’d like to gloat about. Cheers!

TYRANNICAL PRAISE

"This is really awesome, and you should probably give it a shot."
- TotalBiscuit, The Cynical Brit

"This is really good, some witlessly meme-y humour aside, retaining many 4X tropes but throwing out just enough to be punchy."
- Rock, Paper, Shotgun: Unknown Pleasures Game of the Week

"You take the rule of the Tyrant threatening to take over the galaxy with your armies of doom, despicable acts, and a death ray that comes online when you're being especially bad."
- Scott Manley

"Every little feature of Space Tyrant has been so carefully planned, designed and executed, that all its elements join together in harmony to create an amazingly addicting experience."
- Game Skinny

"A 5x Space Rogue like - lite strategy game and it's damn good."
- Mack - Worth A Buy

"Explore space, befriend or terrorize enemies, kick butt at turn-based battles and generally have fun taking over space with this replayable 4X-styled game."
- Hardcore Gamer

"Blue Wizard Digital did a great job of cutting away the 4X fat while retaining the core parts of what makes the genre fun."
- Indie Games

“It's a 4X title on speed. Everything is a lot faster, everything’s a lot more streamlined."
- Yippee Ki Yay Mr Falcon

"I really like the fact that the game doesn’t take itself too seriously."
- The Zero Review

“The developers have managed to cram a grand space strategy game into a really quick and funny experience.”
- ReformistTM

"...a competent, charming, easy to control PC title that doesn't weigh you down with the minutiae of 4X games or their dreadful endgame slog."
- Strategy Gamer

"it lives up to it's promise of quick strategic action with a slick presentation."
- ISK Mogul

"This is a 4X-Lite game with card-based powerups and blistering real-time fleet battles which last only a matter of seconds, with fighters, laser beams and explosions galore!"
- Save Or Quit

About This Game


Finally, a mega-empire builder where you can enjoy titanic space battles and galaxy-wide conquests but not run over your employer-mandated allotment of lunch-eating minutes.

In Space, Nobody Can Hear You Die Screaming.
(THOUGH YOU ARE STILL DYING, OK, IT'S JUST THAT YOUR SCREAMS DON'T TRANSMIT THROUGH THE VACUUM OF SPACE, WHEN YOU'RE IN SPACE. DYING.)

Features
  • Tactical combat!
  • Strategic scheming!
  • Grimdark grimness!
  • No cultural victories! No diplomacy! In Space Tyrant there can be only slaughter!
  • Tons of excellent space cards to play!
  • Space aliens!
  • Space police!
  • Simplified, easy-to-grasp 5X (eXplore, eXploit, eXpand, eXterminate and eXsanguinate!)
  • Swift gameplay means quick deaths and lightning-fast victories!
  • Hours upon hours of space strategy delivered steaming-hot into your gaping tentacular maw-orifice, the way you demanded it!

And what about those crazy space battles? Feast your brains...

The Hoplite Dynasty
You start off in command of the Hoplite Dynasty; a savage empire of ticked off "rabbots" who burrow into the enemy fleets with a fevered tenacity found only in the cold vacuum of space. They're an angry mob of cranksters; always more than ready to tear it up on behalf of your maniacal calculations. Just look at these things, almost eager to die miserably at your slightest whim:


The Bzzerk Union
Once you and the Hoplites have callously knocked a chip off the galaxy's shoulder, the Bzzerk empire will become yours for the Tyranting. They're a fierce army of mechanized Bees who live only to put the sting in your zing. The little ones die off easy, but they're cheap to replenish and 'death by a thousand cuts' is no joke. In fact, it's exactly the good times these swarmy little bast*rds crave as they smash against the windshield of endless war:


The Techno Slug Party
Once you've pushed the Bzzerks through to victory and cranked the galaxy down another notch, you'll have sufficiently brought the Techno Slug Party under your iron rule. These slimy little dance party invertebrates don't know the meaning of sleep, or healthy choices... or paying rent - but they'll put some serious hurt on anything that stands in their way. As malleable and spaced out as they may seem, their chemical fortitude is yours to wield with lucid vicariousness. I don't want to give away too much, but unlike their more sober predecessors, they will literally go the extra mile for a true Tyrant.

We'd show you the Techno Slugs too, but it would be in violation of our low attention span directive. Hey look, a squirrel!



About Blue Wizard Digital
Founded by Jason Kapalka, who formerly founded some outfit called PopCap, which made puny weakling non-space-conquering games like Bejeweled and Peggle and Plants vs Zombies, before it was acquired by the necrotic empire of Electronic Arts. Blue Wizard recently released the darkly comic sliding block puzzle/ 80's slasher movie tribute Slayaway Camp to Steam and iOS. The Space Tyrant team consists of a crew of gore-thirsting void pirates and psychic mutants barely contained inside a fetid barracks atop a Capitol Hill coffeeshop in Seattle. Sanctions are already in place.
