Close To The Sun, a first person horror game from publisher Wired Productions and game studio Storm in a Teacup, arrives on PC May 2 on the Epic Games store. The title will also come out later this year on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Set in the 19th century where futurist Nikola Tesla chased his passion for changing the world, Close to the Sun finds gamers aboard a colossal vessel named the Helios. Though it was initially a craft aimed to further scientific research, it is now filled with a haunted atmosphere. The smell of rotting flesh as well as a sign that says “Quarantine” are just two signs that this vessel may not be a safe haven. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
Gamers who pre-purchase Close to the Sunon EpicGames.com will receive an exclusive, limited edition digital artbook.
A game that claims to have the narrative echoes of Stranger Things, The X-Files, and Twin Peaks is not one to be ignored, and hopefully adventure game Trüberbrook lives up to its bold proclamations.
Gamers take on the role of Hans Tannhauser, an American scientist who wins a European vacation in the late 1960s. Initially enamored with the remote German village of Trüberbrook, Hans realizes that this sleepy environment holds a wealth of mystery and possible danger.
Each scene in the game, according to the developers, were staged with actual physical lighting. The handcrafted nature of Trüberbrook is evident in the trailer, and considering the title achieved its Kickstarter goal of $200,000 in just 30 hours, this title should have a following.
Trüberbrook hits PC, Mac, and Linux on March 12, with an April 17th release on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
Most adventure games, whether it’s RPG or even brawler based, relay on the simple aesthetics of its action elements. If one wants a deeper experience, side missions as well as interactions with other characters is almost imperative. With the impending release One Piece: World Seeker, gamers will be able to immerse themselves with the game’s Karma System.
Playing as rubbery powerhouse Luffy, gamers can open different side quests based on their interactions with new characters as well as completing various quests. Such an open ended universe, along with the eye catching visuals of One Piece World Seeker, are just two of the reasons why I’m looking forward to playing this title.
