You’re also tasked with making decisions which affect the nonlinear story line. There’s also a crafting system, enabling the player to craft their own equipment and weapons.
“Our game is being developed in a small, but very experienced team of 20 professionals who work both in the office and in the rogue wastelands of Chernobyl Exclusion Zone using laser scanning, photogrammetry, drones, movie equipment and hand-crafted props and costumes. We’ve already went through the pre-production phase and we have a playable demo version of our game that we want to share with our Kickstarter backers, giving them possibility of experiencing Chernobylite world in 1-2 hours of pre-alpha gameplay,” according to the developers.
