Contest: Win this limited Switch physical edition of Close to the Sun


Mind your wings, folks

We’ve got a limited Switch edition of Close to the Sun up for grabs in today’s contest!

Alright, I’m a happy camper today. This contest combines three of my favorite things — spookery and atmospheric storytelling, cool limited releases of games, and of course, physical prizes. Any of the three would be a good one to me, but all three together of course means it’s just that much better.

Close to the Sun is a thrilling adventure title that just released on consoles a few weeks ago. We’ve got a limited Collector’s Edition for Switch to give away, because we’re just awesome like that. This bad boy is limited to 1,000 copies, so it’s in pretty small supply. Come win it and be one of the happy few to own it!

Check out the trailer above and the press info below to learn more about the game. I’m too spooked out to try to summarize this one on my own.

Grounded in an alternative 19th Century where famed inventor and futurist Nikola Tesla was able to fulfil his shocking potential, Close to the Sun sees players step onto the Helios – a colossal vessel built for scientific research, steeped in horror and mystery. As the heroine, Rose, players find themselves walking the massive area looking for their lost sister on the majestic yet mysterious ship created by Tesla. Where is Ada and what happened? Grand halls stand empty. The stench of rotting flesh lingers in the air. Silence. A single word is painted across the entrance — QUARANTINE!

I’m getting some definite BioShock vibes here, which is absolutely a good thing.
