GSY Video PS4 Xbox One PC

It is hard not to see a BioShock vibe in Close to the Sun, from the art style to the pitch itself (the best scientists have all decided to live on board a huge ship in the middle of the ocean), but the game is not a shooter however. With its mix of puzzles, (poor) chase sequences and exploration, the game is imperfect but clearly not bad at all, but it is very short so we can't strongly recommend it considering its price tag. Check out our videos to see if there is a chance it can appeal to you.

Wired Productions and developer Storm in a Teacup announced the release date of Close to the Sun: May 2 via the Epic Game Store. Reminiscent of BioShock with its stranded-at-sea situation and Art Deco style, the game draws however its inspirations from SOMA, Layers of Fears, Outlast and Firewatch. It's described a story-driven horror adventure set in 1827 during a new age of scientific enlightenment fueled by Tesla. The player controls Rose Archer, a journalist who boards the Helios in order to find her missing sister and discover not all is as it seems.

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog @Seth: i mean, it's a viable option, but if you were a big fan of sony exclusives to begin with you'd need to have an insane amount of patience to wait 3 years to play it on PC (5 Days ago)
