Presentation of a survival horror computer game that allows you to discover all the dark secrets of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. Conspiracy, horror, survival, love and obsession. It’s all in the form of a non-linear, interactive story, playing with the concepts of truth and lies, reality and fiction, science and fantasy. The title of Chernobylite refers to the highly radioactive material that arose as a result of mixing the molten core of the burning reactor # 4 with other chemicals. The game combines free exploration of the world with non-linear story telling, exciting gameplay full of challenges and skirmishes, as well as a unique system of making items, constantly facing the player a number of challenges.
