    A nice walking simulator that is very boring. The horror elements are out of place and disturb the fun. The animation is also ridiculous.
    Why does the beautiful game have to break so bad?

    Horror-adventure Close to the Sun pairs an emotionally-engaging narrative with arguably one of the most stunning and memorable game worlds of 2019. Pity about the frustrating gameplay choices and story decisions that ramp up in the final third of the game. They cast a shadow over the accomplishments that preceded them.

    While the atmosphere, scares, and narrative are successful, the game suffers from sluggish controls and the odd confusing puzzle. [Issue#169, p.96]

    If you like first-person adventure games of the horror and mystery variety then you'll definitely enjoy Close to the Sun.
