Close to the Sun Gameplay and Review on YouTube

Being compared a lot to Bioshock, I really wanted to get in deep and see if the comparisons are only skin-deep, or if there’s more inspiration laying there. In my honest opinion, Bioshock and Close to the Sun are completely different games. They’re both dark and set in a watery environment, but that’s as far as the similarities go.

Close to the Sun carries a deep and compelling narrative and mixes it with beautiful graphics, AAA quality voice-acting, intense enemy encounters and twists that’ll have you tearing up and swearing at your computer screen.
