Close to The Sun - Aboard Helios


For those of you who do not know Close to The Sun, this is a horror-oriented adventure game. The story takes place in 1897 aboard the Helios, a huge ship born from the mind of Nikola Tesla. The Helios is dedicated to research and acts in total independence, not dependent on any government, and bringing together the most brilliant scientists on the planet. You play as Rose, a young journalist that boarded the ship to look for her sister Ada. But nothing will be as planned. The ship is in distress, and a smell of decomposing flesh invades the hall, in which the word Quarantine is painted. You will have to discover what is going on aboard the Helios, exploring the ship, solving puzzles, and facing the dangers that await you there. Fortunately for you, a mysterious ally may help you in your task.
