Chernobylite - The Farm 51
Early Access

Impressions:

It feels like a FALLOUT + STALKER + METRO + DYING LIGHT hybrid.

FALLOUT: It feels like this because its post apocalyptical
STALKER: It screams stalker vibes with lots of *BOO* moments to make you jump while playing.
METRO: Its Russian, it has that metro world look.
DYING LIGHT: It has jobs which you select each day to do.
The story i hear is dynamic and not linear so the jobs you complete, the people you recruit, can impact story.
You setup your own camp, and take care of your people.
There is also limited base building so i guess you can also call it a State of Decay type game too.

Thoughts:
So i am still playing though it.
I can't believe i didn't get any notice of it, and randomly ran into on youtube.
So far it feels OK, the story i have not yet progressed, but its an interesting game.

Is it worth it:
Currently as i type this, in early access its 29.99 USD.
Is it worth it, so far i got about 5 hours in game play on it, so at roughly 6 dollars/hr initially i think its a bit high.
But i am going to play more, so that investment may go down significantly, the game is also in early access.
But honestly any game where i feel is less then $.50/hr you paid for the game is considered a great buy, so it maybe different to others on what they consider a great game.

Looks interesting but I'd probably wait until their is more content. Valheim spoiled me by giving out dozens of hours of coop game play for $20. How are the graphics though? They look quite good in those screens.

I've heard people call this the S.T.A.L.K.E.R of Escape From Tarkov. I never looked into this game much since it's still in early access, but I may have to throw it on my wishlist and check back in a few years to see what kind of progress is being made.

Its not bad.
Its not Cyberpunk quality, but its fairly acceptable.

No unfortunately its single player.
At the moment it has two modes, a story mode, and a free mode, which i am assuming is the full on base building survival type where you gather AI companions and try to survive.

That is exactly it... it is Tarkov with STALKER emphasis.
But i also called it fallout because you gather companions and you do build a base.

That actually sounds amazing, but my strict "No Early Access" policy is forcing my hand. I have plenty of other games on my list, but I think it's definitely at the top of my list to grab after it comes out of EA and I'll likely be watching to grab it on sale before it releases.
