Wired Productions and Storm in a Teacup have announced that the Nikola Tesla-inspired first-person horror game, Close to the Sun, is available now at the Epic Games Store, priced at £24.99. We’re told that players can expect to find themselves aboard a breath-taking and unforgettable experience.
Watch the Close to the Sun launch trailer below:
Close to the Sun sees players step onto the Helios, a colossal vessel for scientific research, steeped in horror and mystery. The game is set in an alternative 19th Century where famed inventor and futurist Nikola Tesla was able to fulfil his potential and change the world forever. As the heroine, Rose, players find themselves 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 Australian folktronica act, Porcelain Pill. 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 mesmerising instrumentals.
Close to the Sun is also slated to release later in 2019 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Check out the official website for more information on the game.
