Storm in a Teacup Announces Horror Game Close to the Sun
Storm in a Teacup is proud to confirm its presence at Gamescom 2017 to announce their fourth game: Close To the Sun.
In Close to the Sun, players control a girl named Rose who is a journalist looking for her younger sister. Her sleuthing leads her to a giant ship complex that was designed by Nikola Tesla for “the sake of science”. Unfortunately, once players arrive there, they find things have gone horribly wrong.
The game’s announcement trailer is pretty chilling, as it shows off many of Close to the Sun’s dark and dreary environment, followed by some shots of creepy injuries and some weird looking monsters chasing after Rose.
Here’s an overview of the game, via Storm in a Teacup:
Close to the Sun is a story-driven horror game that takes place at the turn of the 20th century on a mysterious ship complex created by Nikola Tesla for the sake of science. In this alternative version of history, his scientific breakthroughs have already had a major impact on the world.
You’re Rose, a young journalist looking for your sister and, as you approach this enormous and glorious complex for the first time, you quickly realize that something there has gone horribly wrong…
“This project is crucial for Storm in a Teacup,” said studio founder and creative director Carlo Ivo Alimo Bianchi. “After the first three games, we came back bigger and stronger than ever. We want to tell you stories, and this time we’re going to tell you about a man who dared to defy the Sun, between horror and survival. As always, we aim for a peculiar art style which is STC’s trademark. In building the ship, we’ve been inspired by art deco, art nouveau and steampunk, since visuals for us is as important as the experience itself. Our challenges vary throughout the game but are all built around the general themes of survival and progress towards a promised salvation. Expressed more simply, our challenges generally come down to: there are many ways to die, but only one way to escape.”
