Closer the Distance is a deeply moving slice-of-life sim that tells a story about the connections between family and friends in the face of tragedy.

In Closer The Distance, players take on the role of Angela, who recently passed away in a tragic accident. Angela finds herself in limbo from which she can observe the small cozy village of Yesterby that she once lived in. Quickly discovering that she is connected to the residents, Angela decides to help guide these individuals, finding ways to mend their grief over her own death.

Each character that Angela is able to interact with is fully simulated, with their own emotional states, wishes, memories, and intertwined relationships with other residents of the town. These complex and narratively-rich characters develop over time as they interact with each other, with or without Angela’s guidance.

Through their choices and interactions, players will discover the story of the community of Yesterby and the impact Angela has made on the lives of its diverse cast of characters. Each choice has incredible significance over the rich and poignant narrative that follows, and players will learn that at times, choices made in human relationships can have a deeper impact on your consequences.

Will you be able to help Yesterby’s community heal and chart a new path forwards?

Closer The Distance is coming to Xbox Series X|S, PS5 and PC (Steam) on August 2, 2024.
