If you think you’ve seen it all in the world of game development, think again. Meet the most audacious game developer in the world, who fearlessly ventures into radioactive zones to obtain crucial documents. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at this unprecedented approach and explore the fascinating game inspired by it.
A Game Born from Tragedy
Chernobylite, a survival role-playing game, emerged from the talented minds at The Farm 51. Released in Early Access in 2019, this game takes place against the haunting backdrop of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. As you delve into the game, you’ll assume the role of a physicist who tragically lost their family in the catastrophe 30 years ago.
Unveiling the Creative Process
In a recent developer diary, The Farm 51 shared intriguing insights into the making of Chernobylite. Creative director Wojciech Pazdur revealed that the team drew inspiration from their field research expeditions to the Exclusion Zone, situated at the heart of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor. During these daring missions, they stumbled upon a treasure trove of electronic components strewn across the area. It was these invaluable findings that eventually found their way into the game.
“In fact, we found barrels of chemicals there, not to mention tons of scrap metal lying around, all of which ended up in our game,” Pazdur candidly admitted.
Courage and Commitment
Venturing into areas potentially contaminated with radioactivity is no small feat. However, such audacity exemplifies the unwavering dedication of The Farm 51’s development team. Their extraordinary commitment to authenticity and realism shines through in every aspect of Chernobylite.
Currently available in Early Access, Chernobylite will soon unleash its full potential on Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store on July 28.
