Our company was founded in March 2012 in Kiev, Ukraine. Ten years earlier, when at GSC Game World started developing the renowned S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game series and continued working on it until late December 2011 when the studio was unexpectedly shut down and the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 project ‘frozen’. We were unable to reach an agreement with the rights owner regarding the use of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. brand. That’s why we made the decision to move forward as an independent studio with a new project. That day became the starting point for Vostok Games.
Vostok Games is a new studio founded by veterans of Ukrainian game industry with multiple years of experience in developing and releasing commercially successful projects. In March 2012 we reached an agreement with Vostok Ventures Ltd o supply the financing for our new game – free2play MMOFPS Survarium (work-in-progress).
To create games that broaden the limits of the human experience that raise current questions of our time. These are questions of science, ecology, relationship of human and nature, cruelty, inventiveness of modern civilization, and, certainly, spirituality.
