  • Close to the Sun

It’s 1897. Deep in international waters, the Helios stands still. Dark clouds loom overhead as unforgiving waves crash against the hull. Colossal effigies of gold, decorated with magnificent finery, stretch as far as the eye can see.

Born of Nikola Tesla’s vision, the Helios serves as a haven for the greatest scientific minds. An unbound utopia for research, independent from state and isolated from the gaze of society. Free to push the boundaries of matter and time.

Journalist Rose Archer steps aboard the Helios in search of her sister Ada. She quickly discovers not all is as it seems. Grand halls stand empty. The stench of rotting flesh lingers in the air. Silence. A single word is painted across the entrance… QUARANTINE!

Experience a second era of scientific enlightenment, where the mind and inventions of the great Nikola Tesla have shaped the 19th century

Step aboard the Helios - Explore the colossal and mysterious vessel of scientific discovery, a safe haven for scientific progress, away from the threat of corporate espionage

Use your wits to guide Rose on her journey to find her sister Ada, overcome dangers unknown to understand the fate of the Helios and its inhabitants

Solve challenging puzzles to progress through the game and unlock secret areas

Search every corner to uncover hidden collectables and discover the history and secrets of Wardenclyffe and its workers

Explore a visually stunning environment Built in Unreal Engine™️ 4
