The developers from The Farm 51 are no strangers when talking about survival horror games. Their previous release Get Even was very impressive when it was released in 2017. With Chernobylite, they had recently started a Kickstarter to fund this new game. in just 10 days, it has seen massive success so far with less than $6,000 left that is needed to complete the fund’s goal of $100,000.
Though the game is planned for a full release next year in 2020, an Early Access version of Chernobylite will be available later this year.
Take a look at the gameplay below:
The plot of the story is around the physicist protagonist that you will play as, in search of his girlfriend lost to the nuclear disaster. In search of closure and seeking answers you will enter the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.
April 26th, 1:23 a.m. Ukrainian time, 1986. The day on which the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe happened and the lives of 350,000 people changed forever. At the time you were just a young, passionate, naive physicist working at the facility. And like many, you’ve lost what was most dear to you—a loved one. 30 years later you’re still struggling with the demons of the past. So, to finally put them to rest, you return to what’s now called the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.
As the gameplay video shows, you will encounter the horrors that lie within the zone. The gameplay is not linear, as the video showcases its features one at a time. You will be able to build a home base, talk with other Stalkers that are in the area and allying with them, branching choices and random events among many other things.
Survive – Ally or compete with other stalkers of the Chernobyl zone to survive. Remember that life is fragile, and it is your decisions that determine the fate of your companions. You can spend as long as you need preparing; however, be aware that your story is still being written. Every passing moment your chances of success are dwindling, comrades are dying, supplies are running out, or an unexpected patrol could discover you. On top of this, supernatural dangers are arising around you in mysterious patterns. Each day brings new challenges, adding to the ever-increasing severity of your current situation. Plan your strategy carefully if you want to survive.
Play by Your Own Rules – Craft your gear and weapons to protect yourself from the hostile military personnel and supernatural threats lurking in the zone. Make use of the sophisticated tools at your disposal to aid you in your struggle while navigating the rough and contaminated environment. Stay undetected and gather all the evidence you can in order to piece together events from the past. Decide what happens in the world around you by making choices and finding or avoiding the truth.
