Chernobylite is a survival-horror RPG in the tradition of Stalker, set in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. The latest developer diary, exclusively provided to PC Gamer by The Farm 51 and All In! Games, focuses on the survival half of the equation.
As game director Artur Focjik explains, exploring the Zone is full of dangers like radiation, a nemesis who pursues you throughout the storyline, and supernatural events connected to a mysterious substance called chernobylite that’s appearing around the game’s fictionalized version of Chernobyl. That’s not enough, according to Focjik, which is where the survival elements come in.
