Wired Productions and Storm in a Teacup to electrify PC gamers on May 2 with consoles to follow in 2019. Sparks fly as global release date for Tesla-inspired horror adventure, Close to the Sun, marks its arrival via Epic Games Store

One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane… Award-winning global publisher, Wired Productions and leading Italian game studio, Storm in a Teacup, are today proud to announce that the highly-anticipated first-person horror game, Close to the Sun, will release exclusively on the Epic Games store for PC on 2nd May 2019.

Available now for pre-purchase worldwide, adventurers can discover Close to the Sun at EpicGames.com, for £24.99, with €29.99 in most European countries* and $29.99 in North America. All pre-purchasers will receive an exclusive, limited edition digital artbook at release. The game will release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later in 2019.

Grounded in an alternative 19th century where famed inventor and futurist Nikola Tesla was able to fulfill his potential and change the world forever, Close to the Sun sees players step aboard the Helios, a colossal vessel for scientific research, steeped in horror and mystery. Grand halls stand empty. The stench of rotting flesh lingers in the air. Silence. A single word is painted across the entrance… QUARANTINE!

Using the raw power of the Unreal® Engine 4 and embracing leading-edge technology to increase fidelity and quality within the game to deliver a breathtaking experience for players, Close to the Sun has already garnered considerable interest and praise from critics as well as fans.

“May 2 can’t come quick enough for us,” said Leo Zullo, Managing Director, Wired Productions. “Our partnership with the amazing team at Epic Games has not only accelerated the development process of Close to the Sun in terms of accessing the sheer pixel-pushing grunt of Unreal Engine 4, but allowed the incredibly talented Storm in a Teacup team to showcase their collective talents to deliver a truly memorable and breathtaking first-person horror adventure.”

In addition to the long-awaited release date announcement, Storm in a Teacup are also pleased to unveil the voice cast for the French, Italian, German and Spanish versions of the game which can be viewed in full at http://www.closetothesungame.com/.
