About Tyranny - Standard Edition

About this game

An underdog roleplaying game.

In Tyranny, the grand war between good and evil is over – and the forces of evil, led by Kyros the Overlord, have won. The Overlord’s merciless armies dominate the face of the world, and its denizens must find their new roles within the war-torn realm... even as discord begins to rumble among the ranks of Kyros’ most powerful Archons.

Players will experience the new world order under the Overlord in a reactive role-playing game (RPG), interacting with the populace as a powerful Fatebinder in the Overlord’s forces -- roaming the lands to inspire loyalty or fear as they bring control to the last holdouts of the Tiers.

Your Official Tyranny - standard Edition Steam Key gives you:

 

  • Branching, unique stories in an original setting: The battle between good and evil has already taken place, and evil stands victorious.
  • Choices that matter –  make world-altering decisions with far-reaching consequence: As a Fatebinder in the Overlord’s army you wield a vast amount of power in the occupied lands of the Tiers. Will you use that to inspire stability and loyalty, will you be feared, or will you seek your own power?
  • Challenging, classic RPG combat: Tactical real-time-with-pause combat with new party-driven mechanics and modern presentation
  • A rich original setting: Not just another “hero’s journey” -- Tyranny turns the archetypal RPG story on its head and allows players to explore a new take on good and evil

"Tyranny is a memorable RPG that looks great and feels fresh, even while largely working in the confines of the old Infinity Engine style. It's also the rare sprawling RPG that...

"Tyranny's depiction of evil is fascinating and thought-provoking, albeit somewhat obscured by convoluted quest-lines and repetitive combat."

A modern crpg. If you don't like to read, this game is not your cup of tea. The story is is fine, but the graphics is amazing. The only negative about this game is, that it's not too beginner friendly, sometimes it's too complicated. The design is fantastic, I liked nearly every scene in the game, the only negative thing I can say is the cutscenes design are not for my liking, but its my own preference so.... Over this is good game, I can recommend it, but prepare for read a lot.

Solid classic-style RPG with no major flaws.

I really liked Tyranny, at first it came off as a bit cartoony but the experience was overall very enjoyable, it consistently managed to have challenging encounters throughout on my chosen difficulty level. There weren't any major mechanical issues either, as far as I could tell - though the game's definitely a bit on the easier side at some parts, maybe doing certain objectives in a different order would alleviate that but it was overall fairly well balanced.

Tyranny - Standard Edition Review

Sam Jones
Staff Review
With a unique branching storyline in an original setting, Tyranny allows you to visit places that you've never been to before in any other RPG. It's sense of originality makes it a must buy for any RPG fan, or any fan of Obsidian, who've smashed it out of the park once again.
