Chernobyl VR Project
Simulation 27 September 2016
Chernobyl VR Project is an extraordinary exploration game, which utilizes virtual reality to take the players into the ruins of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, as well as the city of Pripyat. Chernobyl VR Project has been developed by The Farm 51 – the studio known for such games as Get Even, Deadfall Adventures, Painkiller: Hell & Damnation or the NecroVision series. This is an interactive story of the fate that befell the citizens of the city, and areas around the power plant, most severely affected with the disaster. Instead of fighting mutants, the player roams the desolate locations and examines encountered items, left behind by the inhabitants in 1986. Thanks to Virtual Reality technology, as well as other modern techniques, such as 3D scanning, Chernobyl VR Project offers extremely pretty graphics and moving experiences – especially since the developers have based their game on the account of eye-witnesses of the terrible event, as well as journalists (including the Nobel Prize laureate – Svetlana Alexievich) in order to produce a game as faithful to history as virtually possible.

Adventure 15 August 2017

We play as a person who got stuck in a haunted house, just like the characters in the movies. To survive, we will have to discover the house's secret and find out what creatures want to kill us. Gameplay in Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul is based on the standard formula used in many other horror adventure games. During our adventures, we mostly explore the haunted house and solve simple riddles and puzzles to push the story forward. Fear is an inseparable element of the game. It can be struck into our us in many ways: by the automatically moving objects, by the disturbing sounds coming from many places, or by the classic jump scares. We will have to pay much attention to the battery supply for our flashlight. Without it, we won't be able to see anything. The game is powered by Unreal Engine 4, but its visuals are rather mediocre in terms of quality. However, the game's audio deserves to be mentioned, as it builds the suggestive and dreadful atmosphere of Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul.

When creating the game world, the developers were inspired by works of abstract art from the beginning of the twentieth century - the player observes lively colors contrasting with one another, as well as simple blocks the virtual environments are made of.
