Steam Closure Announced (No, Not Like That)

As the headline immediately informed you with a great deal of clarity, Tyler Glaiel’s tricksy puzzler, Closure, is finally coming to PC after its PSN debut, with a Steam release set for September 7th. Originally a free Flash release, Closure’s weirdness is that each part of the monochromatic world only exists when there is a light shining on it. Just as popular digital download services cease to exist when you switch off your monitor, Closure’s platforms and switches have no solidity unless they are illuminated. Trailer and more details below.

Eurogamer discovered that the PC version can be played in “any resolution”, will have an unlockable dev commentary and comes bundled with the internal development tools. So, modding will be possible by anyone capable of getting to grips with those.

There you go then. Closure is coming to Steam.

    On a scale of 1-10, where 7-9 are the only valid answers, how much did you enjoy making that title?

  2. Dowson says:

    I wonder how tempting it must have been not to include the “(No, Not Like That)”.

    Almost had me there, you little trickster you.

    My ceiling now has two holes in it as a result of my eyebrows arching to the point of reaching escape velocity. Shall I forward you the invoice Adam? :)

    On topic, always pleased to see PSN and XBLA games make the jump to PC.

    Fear of the dark, feeear ooof the daaaaaaaaaark.

    Wow, you guys really need more clicks apparently.

  7. dE says:

    So THAT explains the sudden burst of happiness, glee and schadenfreude from the Anti-Steam Bandwagon. Quickly followed by a collective “ah bummer”.

  8. Hoaxfish says:

    two can play at that game!

    Valve Closing: no More Steam

      And then Gabe shows up and plays the ultimate trump card. Actually closes Steam.

  9. Urthman says:

    Didn’t I already play this game on PC? Was there maybe a free Flash version first?

  10. Fazer says:

    I see you trollin’, I hatin’.

  11. Gregg B says:

    Wow, that looks brilliant. I loved the Flash version waaay back so I’ve high hopes for this.

    What? Steam is closing? NOOOOO ALL THE OF THE STEAM NAY SAYERS ARE RIGHT! *jumps out window…which is only 3 feet off the ground. Looks both ways, and then runs off into the woods never to be seen again.*

  13. Jahkaivah says:

    Haven’t seen such a fun title since link to

  14. MythArcana says:

    Why does every new Gleam game look and play exactly alike? They really don’t seem to care for diversity and fresh ideas/art over there too much it seems.

    • Saldek says:

      What is this Gleam you speak of, Impaler?

    • RobF says:

      Your ability to shoehorn in an anti-Steam comment whilst never being able to type “Steam” is unceasingly amazing.

      Also, amazingly ill considered in reference to the game we’re talking about here considering…

    • Ahtaps says:

      Is that a commentary on the games industry?

  15. kwyjibo says:

    The flash game has better art than the actual game.

    Sticking with the Flash.

  16. PodX140 says:

    Only forgivable for the pun :D

    (But seriously, let’s not go down the kotaku path, eh?)

  17. RichieJohn says:

    Can’t wait. It never came to UK PSN for some reason so I should be able to play it now.

  18. DickSocrates says:

    The game looks really nice. The music, in the trailer at least, seems totally inappropriate.
