Chernobylite Early Access

Early Access to Chernobylite is now underway on Steam, offering a first crack at this survival/horror game set in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone (thanks Rhialto). You can get a look at the game in the Early Access Launch Trailer, and an update on the Official Website has a bit on the game, its crowdfunding, and what to expect from the Early Access version. Here's a full description:
Chernobylite is a science-fiction survival horror experience. The game is mixing free exploration of its disturbing world with challenging combat, unique crafting and non-linear storytelling. We will constantly challenge you to:
