My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant removes mentions of Nintendo in wake of Tomodachi controversy

Up Multimedia just updated My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant – Already one of the very few gay-oriented computer games currently available, version 1.5 adds a bunch of options aimed at enabling players with a disability to join in the fun. Woop woop!



Up Multimedia has also responded to the recent Nintendo same-sex censorship controversy by withdrawing references to popular Nintendo titles from the game.

Specific improvements to My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant include introducing a unique high contrast mode for players with vision impairment and a subtitling system for sound effects for players with a hearing impairment.


“Gay people with a disability can sometimes feel like they’re trapped in a second closet,” says developer Luke Miller. “Making our game accessible to people with different requirements has always been a goal of ours and we are pleased to take some steps towards it.”

“Even with the limited resources of an indie company, it was surprisingly easy to meet many of the suggestions provided by the Game Accessibility Guidelines at We’re hoping our efforts here will inspire other developers to include gamers with disabilities in the fun.”

Additionally, the new version of My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant removed references to Nintendo’s Zelda: Ocarina in Time that had been part of the pop-culture-laden game. This comes after reports last week that Nintendo have controversially patched their game Tomodachi Collection: New Life to remove a “bug” that allowed same-sex characters to get married (and also get pregnant). The glitch was a game breaking bug, but the way they handled it has left much to be desired in the gay community



“What is particularly disheartening about Nintendo’s actions is that it shows that the near absence of gay and lesbian characters in video games is not always an oversight but often the result of deliberate decision-making by developers to exclude people like us from computer games. And we can, and we will, withdraw our support when we see that happening.”

My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant is available now for Windows/Mac/Linux for $22US(same price worldwide) at and will have a booth at GaymerX.

So Much Drama at RPDR – You Better WERK in ‘Dragopolis’



So Much Drama!

No, it’s not what happens the Sunday morning after a wild night at your local LGBTQ* club. It’s the name of a game development studio who has been more than helpful getting the inaugural GaymerX off the ground. I’m like, that’s awesome! A game designer and backing GaymerX? How can one man be so fierce?

Then I found out they’re linked up with RuPaul, and I was like, “Oh hunty, I better WERK.”


Fans of the reality show, beat those faces, because all the glitz, glamor, theatrics, and tucking of the hit show RuPaul’s Drag Race comes to the App Store in the new game RuPaul’s Drag Race: Dragopolis. The mobile game, a fabulous twist on the runner-game genre, places players in the role of one of the most sickening drag queens around, when suddenly, the set of RuPaul’s Drag Race is invaded by the Evil Drag Queen Apocalypstyk, who kidnaps RuPaul’s super hot Pit Crew!

Oh… no… she DI-N’T.

Players will be able to put the real realness on their ferocious hunty with fierce wigs, outfits, even their own face, as they will need to muster up all the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent they can as they race, jump, and claw their way to the main stage, all while serving up polish for the cameras on the runway.

Plus, best quote EVAAAAAAAR: someone asked what the best part of Dragopolis would be, and RuPaul responded, “I’ve enjoyed playing with myself for years, and now Drag Race fans can too.”

Gamers can be Supermodels of the World for free on May 6 by downloading Dragopolis from the App Store. If that wasn’t fierce enough, additional missions with Drag Race fan favorites Pandora Boxx, Yara Sofia, and Manila Luzon can be purchased from the App Store for 99 cents each.

If this sounds like fun and you have an iOS device, give it a try! The game is free to download, so why not? Let’s support those who support gaymers and specifically GaymerX. Gurl, don’t be a booger.
