Launching directly into the Epic Games store, Close to the Sun by Storm in a Teacup is an atmospheric horror game that looks to be full of mystery and puzzles. While the main elements of the story aren’t very clear, the strange devices and destroyed environment that is featured certainly shows a journey through danger and curiosity.
Besides already available for pre-order for PC through the Epic Games store, the game is set to launch on both PC and Console. However, they don’t mention which console devices they plan to launch on nor do they have a launch date besides “coming soon” which means it will be here sometime in 2019.
In preparation for the upcoming release, Carlo Ivo Alimo Bianchi, CEO & Founder, Storm in a Teacup, said: “Our relationship with Epic and the decision to use the Unreal Engine have provided fantastic opportunities for our studio, enabling a greater creative freedom and the ability to double-down on quality for our games. To launch on the Epic games store feels like the perfect next step and we are delighted that our partnerships with both Wired Productions and Epic Games will help propel Close to the Sun to achieve our ambitions.”
Fans of atmospheric and experience horror games should certainly be excited for this one because, based on this trailer, it has all the elements that we could want. Mystery, horror, strange and dangerous environment, and puzzles.
