Crying Suns is a tactical and tough game. It features difficulty settings, but its nature as a rogue-lite means you can expect to fail quite a bit. The game separate’s itself from those that inspire it by weaving a deep story-line and a ton of lore into its randomly generated chaos.
It is impossible not to compare Shortest Trip to Earth and FTL. If I didn’t already know better, I’d assume the game was a direct sequel to FTL upon first glance.
