Get Even developer The Farm 51 has announced that its post-nuclear survival game Chernobylite will head to Kickstarter “soon.”
Coinciding with the announcement is a brief teaser (embedded below), showing off changing environments and some suitably creepy scenes and enemies.
The Farm 51 describes Chernobylite as a survival horror experience set in “the beautiful and horrifyingly accurate 3D-scanned recreation of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.”
However, the description of the gameplay—as well as the visions included in the teaser—seems to lean more towards survival aspects. Noted among the key features are non-linear storytelling, crafting, and the need to balance supplies.
While no funding goal or start date has been revealed for the Kickstarter campaign, it should begin within a matter of weeks.
The Farm 51 CEO Wojciech Pazdur did take the time to speak about the choice to take the crowdfunding route:
“[W]e should expand the locations in the game comparing to the original concept we had, and ask gamers for their help in doing so. It’s a hard and dangerous task, keeping in mind that to achieve that goal, we’ll need to make some extra trips to the Exclusion Zone and scan even more buildings and objects. […] The crowdfunding campaign will also let us collect some extra funds to do the Chernobylite location expansions plus add some extra features that we were always dreaming of.”
OnlySP was impressed with the developer’s previous effort, Get Even, back in 2017, scoring it as a Distinction (4/5), saying that “Clocking in at 8-10 hours for the first playthrough, Get Even is a weekend well spent.”
