About the GAME

What is chernobylite?

Chernobylite is a science-fiction survival horror experience, mixing free exploration of a disturbing world with non-linear storytelling and RPG elements. Remember this when you make your choices: they may not immediately have a direct impact on the Zone. Sometimes you’ll feel the consequences many hours later.

Uncover a dark secret

1:23 AM Ukrainian time, April 26th, 1986. The day when the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe changed the life of 350,000 people forever. Now, 30 years later, play as one of the Chernobyl Power Plant’s ex-employees, physicist Igor Khymynyuk, and investigate the mysterious disappearance of your beloved on that fateful day. Survive and reveal the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone’s dark secrets. Stay alert, a military presence is not your only concern.

Build your team

In Chernobylite, your companions are key to your survival and progression through the story. It’s not a one-man journey—build a team and take care of your allies. If you do it right, they’ll support you on your way to the final heist; if you fail in creating and maintaining your relationships, your odds won’t be worth a kopiyka.

Play by your own rules

Your choices aren’t limited to the story—you decide what approach will be best. Carnage or evasion? You make the call on how to prepare for upcoming threats.

Craft gear and weapons before you face the hostile military personnel on patrol and supernatural creatures lurking in the darkness. Improve your skills to gather information about past events, but remember, your choices can make you both friends and enemies.


Prepare your strategy for the final mission. Each day can bring new challenges: the death of your comrades, low supplies, or discovery by an unexpected patrol. Supernatural beings lurk in the dark, waiting for an opportunity to strike. Craft your plans carefully…at least if you want to survive.


Visit one of the most mysterious and isolated places in the world—the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. Recreated using 3D-scanning, Chernobylite is the most accurate reconstruction of the Chernobyl area. But the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant and its surroundings are not what they once were—no one can foresee the terrible fate that may have befallen your beloved.
