Close To The Sun is an Intriguing 19th Century Horror Game

By Kim Snaith on at

From Storm in a Teacup, a Rome-based indie developer who previously brought us NEROClose To The Sun is an upcoming horror adventure set in an alternate-history 1800s.

As is trendy these days, Nikola Tesla is at the heart of Close To The Sun. His scientific discoveries have majorly changed the world, and at the core of the game's story is a ship created by Tesla himself.

It looks dark, it looks gory, and the trailer shows off a gorgeous Victorian era-meets-steampunk vibe. It's a little bit The Order, a little bit Bioshock, and I'm thoroughly intrigued.

Whether it will actually be any good though remains to be seen. The studio's previous games haven't been particularly remarkable, but from the trailer, Close To The Sun certainly looks a cut above the rest. It's expected to release sometime in 2019, so I guess we've got a while to wait to find out.

For more information, keep an eye on the game's official website.
