Rotorist Workshop‘s top-down survival horror Tunguska: The Visitation brings the DRM-free apocalypse to GOG.
Tunguska: The Visitation is the perfect example of indie development, as it’s done by one man whose love for the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series shines through both atmosphere, presentation, and gameplay. One plays as a Ghoul Hunter and tries to figure out what happened in Tunguska back in 1908 (already used as storytelling material in the adventure game Secret Files: Tunguska I reviewed), as disaster struck the Soviet area, bringing with it all sorts of radiation hazards and mutants.
Bringing together shooter as well as survival and light RPG elements, the game caters for all sorts of players, but stays true to its post-apocalyptic roots. The freedom to go almost anywhere (and probably die there) in addition to a day/night cycle adds to the open-world atmosphere and should make the waiting time for the next S.T.A.L.K.E.R. title easier to bear.
Tunguska: The Visitation was originally released in June 2021 and is now available DRM-free on GOG with a 25% launch discount that lasts until tomorrow, August 2, 2021, at 1 PM UTC.
