Close to the Sun is a first-person adventure game with horror elements. The project was developed by the Italian studio Storm in a Teacup, the developers of N.E.R.O: Nothing Ever Remains Obscure.
The action takes place at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth century, but the vision of those times presented by the authors is very different from what we can find in history books. Here, mankind immediately noticed the genius of Nikola Tesla and his inventions became part of everyday life, providing him with the means to make even more groundbreaking discoveries changing the fate of the whole civilization.
In Close to the Sun, we play as a young journalist named Rose, who, in search of her missing sister, boards a giant sea ship designed by Tesla himself for scientific purposes. When she arrives at the place, she quickly discovers that the unit has become an arena of a supernatural nightmare. Massacred corpses of the crew lie everywhere, and the deck is terrorized by beasts unlike anything that comes from the Earth.
Close to the Sun is a first-person adventure game. The authors have prepared a variety of challenges that test both our mind and dexterity. We also spend a lot of time sneaking behind our enemies' backs and running away from them. In addition, the creators showed a lot of creativity in our character's death animations.
The game uses Unreal Engine 4. The authors combined steampunk with the styles of art deco and art nouveau, creating an attractive and unique mix.
