Billed as "the perfect gift for Christmas", Up Multimedia's My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant is a gay-themed (actually, "gay-themed" is probably understating the matter) interstellar point-and-click adventure staring - get this - Captain Tycho Minogue. Yes. Minogue.
Like many point-and-click games, it's heavy on style, and the game's art is done cheekily (pun intended) by Joe Philips. You may not know his name, but you've likely seen his art before, and it's work that sells the title as exactly what the developer pushes it as: Funny and adventurous. (Full disclosure: I haven't played the game at all yet, though I will once there's a Linux distribution, which they say is coming soon.)
Labelling it as "Approved for distribution by the Ministry of Homosexual Pornography" certainly helps with the humour, and helps differentiate it from many of the queer-friendly games we've reported on recently - either those in which you can choose with whom the protagonist gets it on, or those trying to embed more intimately LGBTQ themes into the narrative - and puts it more in line with light-hearted gay fare like the up-coming (and NSFW, depending on how far into it you get) Coming Out On Top.
My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant is already available for PC and Mac, and as I mentioned, I'm hoping to get a chance to dig in to it soon. I'll report back when that happens.
