We’re going to fix this page up a bit as the flip around was confusing. Nonetheless, happy this turned out the way it did!
// Did you know that the insanely joyous soundtrack for Tyrian is online for free via the composer’s bandcamp? No fool’n. Check it out.
As this is a quasi recommendation for the game and music, I also suggest checking out the rest of Brandon’s work which is absolutely top notch.
I can’t add much to Tyrian other than what Ross says beyond I really wish I had this game at a younger age. I love these games, but the burn of failure runs pretty deep. As my allowance disappeared I remember wondering as a kid “is this really worth it?” while still chasing after the high of Top Gun-esque dodges. This game just has a great feel and an even better look.
GOG offers the game for free. I’m glad people are keeping it alive somehow. Thank you Ross!
