Publisher Humble Games and developer Alt Shift Studio will release science-fiction roguelite game Crying Suns for Switch on May 27 for $24.99, the companies announced. Pre-orders are available now via the Nintendo eShop at a 10 percent-off discount price of $22.49.
Here is an overview of the game, via Humble Games:
With over one million players across platforms (PC, Mac, iOS, and Android), Crying Suns is a narrative and tactical game putting players in the role of Ellys Idaho, a space fleet commander, exploring a mysteriously fallen empire. In this roguelite-structured experience, deeply inspired by science-fiction classics as Dune or Foundation, but also BattleStar Galactica, each successful run progressively uncovers the truth about the underlying post-apocalyptic story. Players encounter several gameplay phases such as story events in which choices can have positive or negative consequences, planets exploration for resources, and tactical fights between space fleets.
- Exploration – Space exploration in a procedurally-generated universe.
- Battle – Tactical fights between battleships and their squadron fleets.
- Story – More than 300 possible story events including a deep and dramatic storyline structured in six chapters.
- A Science-Fiction Universe – A dark and disturbing atmosphere inspired by classic science-fiction universes.
