Today, Areal received a giant boost to its legitimacy, as Alexey Sytanov, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.’s lead designer and scriptwriter, has joined the team at West Games.
In a video message, Alexey explained the political situation in Kiev, where S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and now Areal is being made, his role in S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Survivarium and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, and affirming that the West Games staff did work on S.T.A.L.K.E.R., and are in fact people he knows and have worked with.
He also dropped two bombshells; he is bringing new game ideas that were not in either S.T.A.L.K.E.R. or Survivarium, including story based online multiplayer, and, West Games is finally going to unveil some footage soon.
We won’t tell you to support this project; that’s for you to decide at this point. However, we highly recommend you read this update and watch the video from Alexey below.
