Crying Suns, as explained by the above image, is a tactical rogue-lite game where you take the role of the commander of a space fleet. Exploring the ruins of a mysteriously-fallen empire, this indie game will explore the secrets behind its demise. This game is inspired by such properties as Dune and Foundation, and beyond uncovering the truth about this decimated empire, the game boasts that you'll find the truth behind yourself. You can watch the trailer below:

According to Humble Games, the game's premise is as such:

After 700 years of peace and prosperity, the Galactic Empire has been shattered into pieces. God-like machines (OMNI's) which did everything for their human masters, have mysteriously shut down. Humankind has long since lost the ability to survive on its own and is dangerously close to extinction. Somewhere in a far corner of the Galaxy is Gehenna, a planet that is the pinnacle of Imperial Tech and humanity's last chance.
