New Spiritual Successor to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Surfaces


Development team Vostok Games is working on a game called Survarium. But I'm sure most of you already know that. Recently, a completely separate project showed up on Kickstarter, called Areal, which was described as a "definitive spiritual successor to the cult hit S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series."

Here's a bit more about the game (read more):

Areal's story is not linear – players can choose how their characters act and speak – everything from how you talk to who you kill changes the storyline of Areal. There is no morality system in Areal, so you are free to make choices that you think are best in any given situation, without being blinded and limited by a standard good/evil system. Ultimately, Areal is the culmination of everything that we want to see from a post apocalyptic game, and it's something that we can realize with full creative freedom because of the unique platform that is Kickstarter. All we need is your support!

It appears that these are two different teams both with former team members from S.T.A.L.K.E.R.'s GSC Game World. The scattered devs have clearly started working on different projects. Also, there was a thread on the Survarium forums which contained threats of legal action, but these have been removed since.

By the look of it, a lot of the assets, art and weapons seem rather similar to what we've seen in games like STALKER, as well as the upcoming Survarium and Areal.

The campaign is so bad it borders on trolling. But people are throwing money at the screen so what do I know ?

I wouldn't mind a new Stalker game.

I've gotta say I agree with His Buns. STALKER 1&3 are my favorite games of all time. But this campaign is just "since we have no game to show you here's a bunch of STALKER videos". Disingenuous to say the least. The game screenshot at the top looks a bit like an iso RPG, in which case I'm convinced this is going to be nothing like STALKER.

Not to mention that the art looks way too pretty and sunlit to achieve the same atmosphere.
