Close to The Sun is ready to set sail to an era of discovery and adventure on the high seas as this haunting adventure goes live today on Xbox One, Playstation4, and Nintendo Switch.
Publisher, Wired Productions, has launched Close to The Sun into brand new waters today. After its PC release in May 2019, this first-person adventure is available on consoles. For those of you that caught its maiden voyage, or our Switch preview, you’ll already of heard the tale of our protagonist Rose. Set in an alternative 19th century where Nikola Tesla met his colossal potential, Rose sets foot on the Helios. This gargantuan floating science lab was designed to roam the high seas conducting scientific research but now it lies decimated and abandoned. Somehow it is up to Rose to find out what happened to the ship and her sister Ada. While the ship lies abandoned, a sense of dread fills the hallways and vacant libraries that riddle this environment.
Taking clear visual inspiration from titles like Bioshock and other steampunk literature, Close to the Sun creates a gorgeous mystery to play through. Players are encouraged to solve puzzles, unlock the Helios, and investigate their surroundings to find out what exactly is going on. Developers Storm in a Teacup poured themselves into the game and it shows. Carlo Ivo Alimo Bianchi, CEO & Founder, Storm in a Teacup, added that
“Close to the Sun has been a labor of love for the past few years, so the team is thrilled to be able to convey all the passion and knowledge that went into the creation of the PC version to console owners throughout the world.”
