The Kickstarter campaign for Chernobylite started just a week ago, and 50% of the goal has been reached in just two days with current pledges at over $86,000 out of the $100,000 funding goal. However The Farm 51 developers still need gamers’ support in order to revisit the site with their Reality 51 3D scanning technology and achieve the most accurate reconstruction of the entire Chernobyl area including the destroyed Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. The campaign can be supported here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thefarm51/chernobylite-survival-horror-in-3d-scanned-chernob

It’s also worth to add the game to your wishlist on Steam (https://store.steampowered.com/app/1016800/Chernobylite/) not to miss any updates on its further development.

And if you’d like to chat with developers directly you can join the game’s Discord channel (https://discord.gg/mehRmzY).

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 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.

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;
