Closure the flash game gone Playstation Network title, has finally made it back to the PC with its release on Steam on Friday the 7th of September. There has been much buzz around Closure and it has deservingly won several indie awards both this year and in 2011 . Closure uses unique gameplay focused on dynamic use of lighting, as it is only what you see exists.
Closure is a dark and somewhat somber puzzle game where your manipulation of light is what will drive the puzzles by allowing you to phase objects in and out of reality, this take on puzzle games allows for some greatly innovative puzzles and solutions to come from Closure so check out the release trailer below.
In Closure you play as a strange spider-like demon in the opening chapters but end up exploring the stories of three human characters through the highly stylized settings across a decrepit factory, a murky forest, an abandoned carnival, along with the strange and surreal world that connects them together.
Closure will no doubt be a promising addition to anyones PC library due to its interesting take on the puzzle genre, the stark monochromatic stylings look very closely related to that of Limbo and other gritty gothic styled games, however Eyebrow interactive have taken the original visual concept and taken it a slightly different direction. Closures visuals although hark back to Limbo the overall artistic stylings differ quite a lot with no blur and a higher amount of contrast between the foreground objects and the backdrop creating a spotlight feel to game elements.
The story is told in a somewhat unconventional manner with the player having to seek out parts of the story over the course of the game piecing together the elements, however even when the story is brought together it is also open for interpretations making the narrative actually quite engaging.
