Alt Shift also took time to elucidate its publisher partnership, release date, and platform plans. The studio will be partnering with Humble Bundle for release on Windows and OSX sometime in 2019. Originally envisioned as a solely kickstarted entity, the developer felt it could “benefit from the publisher’s expertise and advice for Windows and OSX releases.”
Overall, Alt Shift appears to be trying to smooth out the gameplay to reach its ambitious goals. Self-described as “FTL meets Foundation,” Crying Suns needs tight gameplay and an unobtrusive approach to the subgenre’s granular aspects in order to live up to this ambition.
