Close to The Sun Review

Close to The Sun follows Rose aboard the Helios: A massive ship structure built in the middle of the ocean from the fantastic mind of Tesla.

With visual and tonal inspirations clear to see from the likes of the Bioshock series, Close to The Sun sets up a fantastic narrative experience that asks many questions but doesn’t necessarily answer enough to deliver a satisfying finale.

It is still a fantastic journey through a beautiful world that keeps the mystery dangling for its complete runtime.
