About the game

If you love Fallout, you might just going to love this game to! S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is a series of first-person shooter video games with horror elements, developed by Ukrainian video game developer GSC Game World. The games are set in the area surrounding the Chernobyl accident site, called ‘The Zone’, in an alternative reality where a second explosion occurs at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant some time after the first and causes strange changes in the area around it.


The game begins with an unconscious, wounded stalker (the player character) being brought to Sidorovich, a black-market trader operating inside the Zone of alienation (or simply “The Zone”). Sid is able to save his life, but the wounded stalker is amnesic; the only clues to his identity are a tattoo on his arm of the acronym “S.T.A.L.K.E.R.” and his PDA which contains only one entry in the to-do list: “Kill Strelok.” The amnesiac stalker is dubbed “Marked One” by Sid.

Marked One repays Sid by performing certain tasks, and in the process receives information about Strelok’s possible whereabouts. With no other leads to his past or the cause of his amnesia, Marked One follows the information from contact to contact, tracing Strelok’s past movements. During the course of the game, the protagonist uncovers clues to his past and true identity while helping other stalkers and fighting the mutated creatures that inhabit The Zone. Shadow of Chernobyl features multiple endings, all of which are dependent on multiple controllable factors, such as money earned during the game, or how much of the protagonist’s memory was pieced together.


In December, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. won the Special Achievement award for Best Atmosphere in GameSpot’s Best and Worst 2007, stating that “S.T.A.L.K.E.R. captures the ‘ghost town’ nature of the zone, from the abandoned cities to the overgrown wilderness. Then, the game adds its own paranormal elements, which help make a spooky environment almost terrifying at times”
