Good news for all you gamers out there who’ve been dreaming of a deeper digital exploration of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone – Chernobylite is planning to expand, and by launching this Kickstarter campaign with its excellent ‘Story Trailer’, we aim to deliver you exactly that experience.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – April 11th, Gliwice, Poland.

The Farm 51, creators of the critically-acclaimed Get Even and Chernobylite, are focused on making your Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant and Pripyat Ghost City experience more immersive. With their extraordinary Reality 51 scanning technology, they plan to scan as much of the area as possible to make you feel like a true stalker. To accomplish this, they need extra funding. Support the developers and enter a warped world soaked in contamination and bristling with natural and supernatural horrors alike. Try to retain what is left of your sanity so that you can achieve your ultimate goal: rescuing your beloved.

Watch the Chernobylite Story Trailer HERE and see for yourself that this game is worth every hryvnia, ruble or dollar you can put towards it!

Now, then: Igor, Chernobylite’s main protagonist. His voice sounded familiar, right? No surprises there: the character’s voiceover was performed by none other than Aleksandr Vilkov – the voice of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.’s main protagonist and some of the principal NPCs in the Metro series.

So, if you like what you see (and hear), support Chernobylite on Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thefarm51/chernobylite-survival-horror-in-3d-scanned-chernob) or help us spread the good news. Every post counts!

ABOUT THE GAME:

Chernobylite is a science-fiction survival horror experience from the team behind the critically-acclaimed Get Even. The game mixes the free exploration of its disturbing world with challenging combat, unique crafting, and non-linear storytelling. This exceptional title will constantly challenge you to:

SURVIVE

Ally or compete with other stalkers of the Chernobyl zone to survive. Remember that life is fragile, and it is your decisions that will 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. With 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.

EXPERIENCE

Maintain your resolve and keep your wits about you; the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant is not what it once was. None can foresee the horrors that may have befallen your beloved.

CHERNOBYLITE MAIN FEATURES:

  • Explore the beautiful and horrifyingly accurate 3D-scanned recreation of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone;

  • Collaborate or compete with other stalkers of the Zone. But whatever you do, never fully trust them. Remember everybody has a hidden agenda. Always.
