Close to the Sun

Close to the Sun is coming to Switch alongside the previously announced PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions later in 2019, publisher Wired Productions and developer Storm in a Teacup announced.

The game first launched for PC via the Epic Games Store in May.

Here is an overview of the game, via Wired Productions:

Grounded in an alternative 19th Century where famed inventor and futurist Nikola Tesla was able to fulfill his potential and change the world forever, Close to the Sun sees players step onto the Helios, a colossal vessel for scientific research, steeped in horror and mystery. As the heroine, Rose, players find themselves walking the massive area looking for their lost sister on the majestic yet mysterious ship created by Tesla. Where is Ada and what happened? Grand halls stand empty. The stench of rotting flesh lingers in the air. Silence. A single word is painted across the entrance… QUARANTINE!

Furthering the game’s experience is an exclusive single from pioneering Australian folktronica act, Porcelain Pill, that players can listen to right now on YouTube or Spotify. Composed by Porcelain Pill founder Adam Scott-McGuinness, the Close to the Sun single was created for the atmospheric horror game of the same name, exploring the title’s dark themes and warnings through stunning vocals and mesmerizing instrumentals.

Using the raw power of the Unreal Engine 4 and embracing leading-edge technology to increase fidelity and quality within the game to deliver a breath-taking experience for players, Close to the Sun has already garnered considerable interest and praise from critics as well as fans.
