See Thirty Minutes of Chernobylite’s Survival Horror Gameplay

Developers The Farm 51 are known for some notable projects such as Get Even, their impressive psychological horror game from 2017. And their latest game sees them once again delving into sci-fi and horror, this time with real-life events. That game would be Chernobylite, which is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. The survival horror game has seen massive success so far in just under ten days, with less than $6,000 to go in order meet its funding goal as of the time of writing. So to entice players even further, The Farm 51 have released a full half-hour video of gameplay to check out. As usual, you can check out this clip below.

As the title implies, Chernobylite is a game about the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Specifically, it’s been thirty years since the disaster, when our physicist protagonist lost their girlfriend in it. And seeking closure after all these years, they decide to venture into the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone for further answers. As the video shows, though, this means encountering several kinds of horror. Unlike other gameplay videos of this type, Chernobylite’s isn’t linear, opting to showcase its features one at a time. This includes being able to build a home base, talking with other “Stalkers” in the area and allying with them, branching choices, random events, and much more. It’s a highly ambitious survival horror game, so here’s hoping it succeeds. If all goes well, expect an Early Access version of Chernobylite later this year, with a full release in 2020.
