Tyrian is a computer game developed by World Tree Games and published in 1995 by Epic MegaGames. It's a straight forward top down shoot em up, and it's super loving awesome. WHich is the reason why I'm going to play through most of it. I had a really good op written here before, but then around episode 4 I hosed up so not the op is a gimp. I might fix this later, but not now.



The first release of Tyrian had three episodes, the next release (Tyrian 2) had 4 episodes and the last version, Tyrian2000 had five episodes. In this LP I will be playing OpenTyrian 2.1, Which is an Open Source port that mimic Tyrian 2, it can be found here.

As usual there will be several challenges, each giving you points, the one with most points in the end wins, simple.
