Combine FTL With Dune And Foundation And You Have This Week's Free EGS Game
Get ready for some space stuff. This week's Epic Game Store freebie is Alt Shift's tactical rogue-like Crying Suns. The game puts players in the role of a fleet commander exploring a fallen empire in space. The story is inspired by both Dune and Foundation. Set in a universe where 700 years of peace overseen by god-like machines has come to an end, the story picks up with the player -- a clone of the best Imperial Admiral in history is sent on a mission to reactivate the machine gods and save mankind, which as become so reliant on the machines that they can't function without them.
The game allows players to explore a procedurally-generated universe while controlling battleships and squadron fleets. There's also plenty of focus on narrative with over 300 possible story events spread across 6 chapters.
Generally, Crying Suns runs $25 with the option for a free demo, but between now and next Thursday you can grab it for free. There's only one bit of DLC, a digital artbook for $5.
