now features the
first release version of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha
, a modification that
attempts to bring to life a version of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. more closely aligned with
the vision of the game first presented by developer GSC Game World during the
game's development. As they explain, at some point this took on a life of its
own: "We started to develop Lost Alpha in the summer of 2008. The project first
started out as a modification to add back the cut levels which all Stalker fans
knew of. After a while, it became more than just a modification, it became our
dream game, how we saw S.T.A.L.K.E.R. We hope to give you the same feeling when
you first played S.T.A.L.K.E.R. A new chapter with familiar elements without
which S.T.A.L.K.E.R. would not be the game we all grew to love. Lost Alpha was a
labour of love. We are passionate about it and we hope you all will enjoy it as
much as we enjoyed creating it!"
