Closer The Distance: A Poignant Life Simulator Set to Redefine Interactive Storytelling

Skybound Entertainment and Osmotic Games have recently unveiled their upcoming life simulator game, Closer The Distance, set to captivate players with its evocative and thought-provoking narrative. This innovative title promises to take players on an emotional journey as they navigate complex human relationships and explore the impact of their choices on the world around them.

The game’s protagonist, Angela, finds herself in limbo after a tragic accident, offering her a unique perspective on the small village of Yesterby that she once called home. Players will experience the lives of Yesterby’s diverse characters through Angela’s eyes, discovering the intricate connections that link them.

By allowing players to help guide the residents of Yesterby through their grief, Closer The Distance explores the profound impact one individual can have on others. Each character is fully simulated, with their emotional states, desires, memories, and relationships. The player’s choices will influence their path as these characters interact and develop further.

Closer The Distance offers a truly unique gaming experience through its seamless blend of life simulation mechanics and narrative-driven gameplay. The team at Osmotic Games has crafted a title that not only entertains but also challenges players to contemplate themes such as empathy, hope, and the human condition.

Daniel Marx, CEO and Game Director at Osmotic Games, shared that the studio’s mission is to explore new ways of conveying complex narratives in video games. With the success of their debut title, Orwell: Keeping an Eye On You, they have now taken the medium even further by merging life simulation with an engaging, thought-provoking narrative.

Set to release later this year for Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam, Closer The Distance is a title that will undoubtedly resonate with players and redefine interactive storytelling.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
