First revealed last month, ambitious sci-fi horror game Chernobylite has hit Kickstarter alongside a new story trailer which includes an in-game look at what we can expect.

The S.T.A.L.K.E.R. vibes are strong with this one and it’s evident GSC Game World’s seminal open-world survival shooter is proving a huge influence. Chernobylite looks to be a smaller-scale affair, although it still promises to off a non-linear game world, full crafting systems, intense combat, and a 3D-scanned reaction of the real-life Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.

The Chernobylite Kickstarter went live a couple of days ago and the development team are looking to hit a target goal of £76,470 over the coming 29 days. They’ve already scooped up £17K at the time of writing so they’re off to a strong start, and that figure is ticking up pretty regularly.

It’s an all or nothing target so The Farm 51 will need to hit this if they hope the project becomes a reality. Which is a little odd really, considering Chernobylite already has a Steam page, full system requirements, and an Autumn 2019 release date. Making games ain’t cheap though, so perhaps this final injection is needed to get the project over the line.
