The game begins with you (Rose) getting a letter from your sister (Ada) asking you to go join her on a massive ship called The Helios, which is full of some of the greatest scientific minds there are. Sadly upon docking your ship you soon find out all is not well, with the port lifeless and in a mess, and upon getting fully inside having doors with quarantine written on them in blood slamming shut behind you and locking, you know something has gone wrong. Along the way, you will meet a few characters like your sister and a guy named Aubrey. But other than that I will let you see what happens for yourself, as that is what is the stand out thing in the whole game.
In terms of looks, the game really does do well. While not really being breathtaking at any point, it does a great job of just looking nice, a lot nicer than I expected infact. Characters do a good enough job of you investing in them, but the twists it throws are a little bit obvious what with only four or so people alive and one monster-like figure to note throughout the whole game. It offers nothing you've not played a million times before, but even so, it was a really enjoyable few weekends.
Overall: I've had fun here once things got going. The only thing letting it down is shortness and replay value. Two playthroughs tops to max out the game, but it did leave me wanting more, so hopefully, this isn't the last we see from Close to the Sun. I highly doubt we have.
