Close to the Sun Switch pre-order is open as the game is coming later this year. This FPS Horror is best described as a Tesla-inspired game developed by Storm in a Teacup. The initial release date was in May 2019 for Microsoft Windows, and if you played it you know it really does feature a character named Nikola Tesla. As the gamers wait for the game to transition to Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch, let’s look at what we know already.
The story follows Rose Archer, a journalist, who is searching for Ada, her sister. Close to the Sun storyline is set in an alternate reality or fictional history if you will, somewhere in the first half of the 20th century. Here, Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison, two rival inventors and scientists, fight each other for world technological domination. Almost the entirety of the game is set aboard the fabled ‘Helios’, operated by Tesla.
Close to the Sun game really does depict a darker, terrible Earth and shows us what could happen, or at least the direction of it, if the technology was ever used for dark purposes. However, despite its ambitious storytelling, gloomy visuals, and immersive gameplay. The PC version got mixed reviews and is mostly somewhere between score 6 and 7 on most big critic sites. Despite all that, the game transitions to other platforms and perhaps it will manage to find its targeted audience on Nintendo Switch.
