Since 1986, the biggest disaster of the nuclear reactor in history occurred in Chernobyl, people are fascinated by the banning zone in northern Ukraine. After all, the disaster had effects to Europe: who was at that time in the world, perhaps recalling how in this country before the consumption of mushrooms was warned – the nuclear cloud has spread beyond our latitudes.
Chronicle of ChernobylOn the super-GAU of Chernobyl
On April 26, 1986, the worst civil nuclear disaster happened. The simulation of power failure led to an uncontrolled increase in power in reactor 4 from the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in northern Ukraine. At 1.23 in the morning, the reactor exploded, releasing radiation from several trillion becquerels; the region northeast of the plant was completely contaminated. The reactor was closed in November 1986 with a reinforced concrete shell. Especially affected by the disaster was the northeastern city of Pripyat. Radioactive failures reached Europe.
The site also fascinated the players. What kind of background is better for a dystopian game than a real apocalypse, as happened in Chernobyl? As early as 1987, players were able to find a nuclear reactor with the inscription "Produced in Chernobyl" in the adventurous adventure "Maniac". As a playground for the entire game zone of exclusion around the melted nuclear reactor, but in 2007 in the brilliant shooter "ST.AL.K.K.R.: Shadows of Chernobyl". The next two "S.T.A.L.K.E.R." The games also played in the populated area with mutated creatures. Theme was Chernobyl, also in 2007 announced "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare."
Measure the radiation several times a day
However, none of these games was as far away as they currently advertised in Kickstarter the terrible survival game "Chernobyl" from the Polish studio "Farm 51". Developers specializing in 3-D scans, especially want to scan Chernobyl, including the environment accurately and conveniently to build. The game is underway for five years, starting as a virtual documentary for the restricted zone. Using 3-D scans, drones, film sequences and similar photo-based surveys, about 20 players reproduced the real environment of the reactor. Actors and props end the game; One of the main characters was a modern graphic design model.
In order for developers to be housed in a military-controlled area with a limited area of 2,500 square kilometers, they had to seek official consent and to pass several checkpoints. Because radiation exposure is still high, they had to be tested several times a day for radioactive radiation, the creators disclose in making a video.
Atomic launch of Kickstarter
The regular view of opponent Gaiger also plays an important role in the game itself. The "Chernobyl" begins on April 26 at 1:23 am. This is the time when the nuclear disaster was taking place. A young physicist must leave his lover behind him in the game and return a few years later to find out what happened to her. He fulfills survivors, adventurers, but also supernatural events. In addition to the science fiction horror story, the virtual attraction of the right zone of shutdown and the reactor should be the main attraction.
At least because of this, the Kickstarter campaign for the "Chernobyl" probably goes well. The campaign, which started on April 11th, has already recorded more than half of the 100,000 francs that creators need to complete, namely, to increase the scanned area. A little later, the minimum amount was reached.
