Created by pioneering Italian development studio Storm in a Teacup, Close to the Sun transports players to an alternate history defined by the scientific breakthroughs of Nikola Tesla. Rose Archer arrives aboard the Helios where an epic adventure and mystery shrouds the disappearance of her sister Ada and the ship’s crew.
Eerie and mesmerizing, the game will arrive for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one entertainment system from Microsoft, and Nintendo Switch on October 29th, digitally and at global physical retail.
To celebrate the upcoming multiplatform release of Close to the Sun, and as part of Wired’s commitment to deliver outstanding physical products, a limited Collector’s Edition has been produced to release alongside the standard physical edition of the game. With only 1,000 pieces produced, the Close to the Sun Collector’s Edition is available to pre-order now from the Wired Productions Store.
The limited Collector’s Edition of Close to the Sun is something quite quirky and ads further to the depth of the alternate history narrative the game is setting up. I’m particularly interested in the vinyl album available in the Collector’s Edition. This just all looks like a lot of fun for people looking to pick up Close to the Sun ahead of its release.
What I imagine would be a lot of fun is if gamers got to stick the vinyl on while the game is playing giving an eerie and atmospheric tone to your gaming experience.
