A partnership with Humble Bundle, a new free demo and a live stream!

Posted by Caroline (Collaborator)

Greetings Crying Suns fans, 

All the team is proud to announce the release of a new free demo of its story-driven and tactical rogue-lite game, Crying Suns. With this newest version, downloadable on Crying Suns’ Steam page, you will be able to experience a major update to Crying Suns’ battle gameplay that the team has been working on for several months now. 

We are also thrilled to announce our recent partnership with publisher Humble Bundle for the Windows and OSX release of Crying Suns, in 2019.

New battle gameplay

Following your feedback, and after a long period of thinking about the gaming experience, the team took the decision to streamline the game flow during battles, making the following changes: 

  • Removed focus points,
  • Altered roles of the Heroes so that they now support different battleship functions: hull maintenance, squadrons and weapons control,
  • Tweaked functioning of critical damages,
  • Added many other additional features.

The result of this major update is a smoother, deeper and more intuitive game, playable for free on the newest version of Crying Suns’ downloadable demo

Partnership with Humble Bundle

We chose recently to partner with Humble Bundle for the release of Crying Suns, particularly to benefit from the publisher's expertise and advice for Windows and OSX releases. The game will still be released in 2019 and with all the stretch goals and new features promised in the Kickstarter campaign.

Gameplay live stream

See you on Monday, February 4 at noon (PST) for the Crying Suns’ demo live stream simultaneously on:

The development team will answer your questions about the game in the stream chats.

Check the changelogs on our forum to access the complete list of all changes made since we started the Beta phase.

      I don't know if there is some sort of problem with the Mac version, but when I go to download the demo it says that it's ready to play but it hasn't actually downloaded anything. When I hit "Play" I get an error saying that the executable is missing.

      Amazing demo. Everything you've put into the game feels very fresh, and operatic. Looking forward to the release!
