'Close to the Sun' (ALL) Is Also Coming To Nintendo Switch - Screens & Trailer

Close to the Sun is a story-driven horror game that takes place at the turn of the 20th century on a mysterious ship complex created by Nikola Tesla for the sake of science.

Close to the Sun casts players back to the height of Nikola Tesla’s career in the late 1890s, charging them with boarding a mysterious ship complex created by the man himself to bring the greatest minds of the world together in an alternative version of history.

Though his various scientific breakthroughs have, even at this early stage, had a major impact on the rest of the world, it quickly becomes apparent that something, somewhere on this ship has gone disastrously wrong, and history is not playing out as it should.

Players take on the role of Rose, a young journalist searching for her sister in this first-person horror adventure, with Close to the Sun’s water-laden world offering no way of escape and no easy answers to the riddles aplenty therein.

Close to the Sun’s visuals are heavily inspired by Art Deco, Art Nouveau and Steampunk, with players charged with both exploring and surviving Tesla’s dystopia domain in first-person as they venture towards a promised salvation. What lies in wait for those who manage to dance away from death within a world seemingly intent on bringing about their demise?


“Close to the Sun has been counted among the most stunning games of 2019,” said Leo Zullo, Managing Director at Wired Productions. “Bringing titles that look this good to Switch is a challenge that we relish and the standard reached is a testament to the quality of our partner studios.”

Key Features:

  • First-person horror adventure where survival is the order of the day
  • Problem solving in order to progress the story: Just what happened on board Tesla’s ship?
  • Danger aplenty as Rose pieces together just what killed most on board despite having no real means to defend herself
  • Teamwork with a yet-to-be-revealed ally who helps Rose navigate her way through the ship’s Art Deco halls
  • Nerve inducing exploration - defenseless and weaponless, the keys to Rose’s survival are running, hiding, and quick thinking

Close to the Sun is currently available for PC (Epic Games store) with Switch, PS4 and Xbox One to follow later in 2019.
