Ty is the 2nd most important Australian cultural export, #1 being Spoiler so it deserves a dedicated lore thread. Have you seen the ad they made? The evil cassowary Boss Cass enters the Outback to activate the Dreamtime by stealing five mystical talismans so he can become the ruler of Australia. However, he is confronted by a family of thylacines and they fight for control of the talismans. Boss Cass uses the last talisman and opens a portal to the Dreamtime to attract the tigers in. However, his plan proves to be a failure when one of the tigers family members throws his Doomarang to dislodge the talismans. The portal is destroyed and the talismans become scattered. Following his family's disappearance, Ty becomes the last of his kind, and a family of bilbies adopt him. Ty thinks that the other Tasmanian tigers are dead during his time with the bilbies. Years later, Ty falls into a cave by accident while playing with the bilbies. While there, he encounters the Bunyip elder Nandu Gilli, who informs him about his heritage and Cass' intentions to seek out the talismans again. Ty resolves to retrieve the talismans and save his family, and is rescued by Maurie, his sulphur-crested cockatoo friend. At Bli-Bli Station, Ty is introduced to a scientist named Julius, a koala who has invented a device that will find the Talismans. Because Thunder Eggs are required to power the device, Ty must find the Thunder Eggs by visiting portals to other worlds. Maurie informs Ty that he must find another boomerang. From there, Ty makes his way through a billabong and finds his second boomerang with the help of Maurie, At a rainforest, he helps save his dingo girlfriend Shazza and helps Ranger Ken by clearing the bats out of a cave, and learns to swim from the lifeguard Rex and find a wrecked ship on a tropical island. When Julius finds the first talisman, Ty encounters Bull, a boar. He tames Bull by luring him into the rocks and rescues the first talisman. At Julius' laboratory, Ty learns that Julius has developed elemental boomerangs by diverting the excess energy from the Fire Thunder Eggs through his Hyper Techno Boomerang Maker. Ty makes his way through Pippy Beach by using his Flamerangs. He uses Bull to travel around the outback and help Shazza and Ken once more. Ty also befriends Dennis, a cowardly green tree frog. He helps Dennis get to his home by lighting up the paths, and also rescues a group of koala children, who are lost in the snow. As Julius finds the second talisman, Cass stations another one of his henchmen, Crikey. Ty jumps across a group of platforms and, after using the oxygen tanks, defeats Crikey. Ty puts out a group of bushfires and enters Lake Burril, a small lake. However, having discovered that Ty is the one collecting the talismans and Thunder Eggs, Cass deploys Sly, another one of his high-ranking henchmen and Ty's rival. As Ty makes his way through another rainforest (while being misguided by a lyrebird named Lenny), he is confronted by Sly inside the rainforest's factory. Ty easily defeats Sly, but he runs off. He later saves the koala children again and puts out bushfires on a snowy mountain, and crosses a group of tropical islands. When the third talisman is located, Ty finds and battles Fluffy, another of Cass' henchmen. Despite attacking with her giant mechanical Yeti, Ty defeats her and crosses a group of tropical islands. After gathering enough golden cogs and Thunder Eggs and noticing that the last two talismans are at Cass' Lair, Ty enters a rainforest leading to Cass' lair while avoiding booby traps and Cass' minions. Inside the lair, Ty sees Shazza. Cass has another of his henchmen, Shadow, capture Shazza. Ty uses the ventilation shafts to defeat Shadow and save Shazza and the fourth talisman. While he continues to searching for Cass, he confronts Sly again and easily overpowers him. Just as Sly is saved from falling into the lava pit, he runs off and vows vengeance on Ty. Ty finds Cass' massive robot, where he is confronted by the cassowary. Ty damages the robot before Sly arrives and betrays Cass. He gives Ty the Doomarang, which Ty uses to destroy the robot and send Cass falling out of the sky. After giving the Bunyip elder the last talisman, his mother and father arrive from the Dreamtime. If Ty collects every opal, Golden Cog and Thunder Egg in the game, a robotic Tasmanian tiger awakens.
