Tahira Awaits!

Posted by Whale Hammer Games (Creator)


Hey folks!

It's exactly one week since we launched Tahira: Echoes of the Astral Empire! It's very strange to be able to say that after just over three years of development time spent on the game.

Press Reception:

We've had some lovely reviews from press so far...

"Tahira: Echoes of the Astral Empire is a daring fusion of soulful artistry and cold-blooded tactics." - Checkpoint Gaming

“If you enjoy a considered and crafted story then Tahira: Echoes of the Astral Empire is definitely for you.” 79/100 - Pixel Pop Network

"It has a sense of scale that belongs in an epic feature film or novel." 9.5/10 - Bajo Games

User Reviews:


We've had a very positive response to the game on Steam and GOG. On Steam we've had 29 reviews so far, with 79% of them being positive. On GOG, we're sitting on 3.8/5 after 27 votes.

A big thank you to everyone who has left us a user review in the last week! If you're playing the game on Steam or GOG and you're enjoying it, please consider leaving us a review. User reviews are the most important factor in getting more people to try Tahira.

You can also help boost the signal by retweeting us on Twitter:

Or sharing our pinned post on Facebook:


Since launch, we've pushed four hotfix patches, to fix bugs that have been reported to us through the Steam and GOG forums. Tom is now settling down to work on patch 1.1, which you can read more about here.

Beyond that, the future of Tahira depends largely on the success of this game. If you'd like to see us continue Tahira, please show everyone you know the game and share it far and wide across the internet.

Finally, thank you so much for giving us your support to make the game a reality.

      Ah yep, forget to mention that and the art book. The art book is being worked on currently. We're concentrating on stability patches at the moment. Once the 1.1 patch is done (aiming for the end of the month at the latest), we'll start work on the 80s version.

      Thank you for those kind words Adrian!

      Any update on the SUPER FRESH ULTIMATE TAHIRA X (80s colors) DLC?

      The good feedback is well deserved. For such a small development team, the result is beyond commendable.
