Close to the Sun

Wired Productions have announced that Storm in a Teacup’s Close to the Sun, a Nikola Tesla-inspired first-person horror game, is headed to the Nintendo Switch later this year.

Here’s a trailer and some details:

Grounded in an alternative 19th Century where famed inventor and futurist Nikola Tesla was able to fulfil 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. As the heroine, Rose, players find themselves walking the massive area looking for their lost sister on the majestic yet mysterious ship created by Tesla. Where is Ada and what happened? Grand halls stand empty. The stench of rotting flesh lingers in the air. Silence. A single word is painted across the entrance… QUARANTINE!

Close to the Sun (Switch – eShop) comes out later this year in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!

Team17 and Hermes Interactive have announced that Automachef will be released on July 23rd. Here’s the latest trailer and the list of key features for the game:

  • Three tasty modes! Take on the campaign levels, build a business in Contracts Mode or play untethered in Test Site Mode
  • Feisty robots! Well, robot. Throughout your time in Automachef, you will be accompanied by Robert Person, who will offer you help and abundant charm.
  • Machines! From the order reader to the assembler and everything in between, you must tell each machine what it needs to do (they can’t think for themselves…yet)
  • Human food! Whether it’s cheeseburgers or salads, each recipe requires different machines with different commands to make it… and don’t even get me started on combo meals!
  • Blueprints! Created the perfect production line? Save your plans as blueprints to use in future kitchens.

Automachef (Switch – eShop) comes out on July 23rd worldwide. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
