Most of us aren’t properly equipped to wander about post-apocalyptic Pripyat. You could risk a visit, but I’d recommend you bring Radscorpion repellent and something to protect your fragile DNA from being devastated by the invisible pockets of radiation that have taken up residence in Ukraine’s most infamous ghost town three decades after the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant disaster forced the sudden evacuation of its original inhabitants.
Your other option is to give the Chernobyl VR Project a try. Developed by The Farm 51, this virtual reality title combines gaming with educational and movie narrative software to give players the unique opportunity to go on a virtual tour of both Chernobyl and Pripyat without the risk of being eaten alive by Ghouls.
Better yet, a portion of the sales will be donated to various charities that support victims of the Chernobyl disaster, including 10% of Bronze edition sales, 30% of the Silver edition, and 60% of the Hall of Fame edition. The Chernobyl VR Project released earlier this month on the Oculus Rift, followed by the HTC Vive in August.
