As much as I love the 4X genre when it can get its hooks into me, getting into the swing of a grand campaign takes some doing for me. There’s always this looming sense of ennui that there’s no end in sight, and all my actions feel like raindrops in a vast sea of stars.
Space Tyrant, the latest from Blue Wizard Digital (they of murder-puzzler Slayaway Camp) seems an enticing prospect, then, offering lunch-break scale chunks of 4X strategy gameplay, but spanning a lengthy multi-mission campaign. Oh, and it launched on Steam last week after a lengthy Early Access stint. That seems relevant.
