Stalker is one of the most iconic games of domestic developers. A game that has become a symbol of an entire generation. Despite the solid time of the project, this universe is still alive and existing. However, predominantly in books. Books like Stalker: Weapons of Choice practically re-create the game universe from scratch. A huge number of atmospheric additions are introduced into the game world, which the developers of the original trilogy did not even think about.
Stalker is legendary in itself. Native landscapes, mysteries, monsters, gunfights, politics - it all makes the game attractive. The fact that the developers, when creating the game, in the truest sense of the word, copied it from the real exclusion zone is a huge step towards realism. Many objects that exist in the game also exist in reality. However, the original universe was not enough for the fans. Appeareda huge number of high-quality and not very modifications that are still being produced. Mods like Dead Air give the game a real second chance.
The book universe infuses ideas into the modifications of "Stalker". It is in the books that the authors describe the concept of an ideal anomalous zone. They write ready-made stories, solve riddles and fill the world with new characters. For example, in "Stalker: Weapon Choice" the main characters only discover one of the secrets of the zone - namely, a softened space that can be broken through and get into parallel sections. This element alone gives life to a whole group of spatial anomalies that can be very cool to fit into the game world.
The Stalker universe is huge. Hundreds of books have revived it, filled it with characters and events. Diversified the expectations of the players and threw thousands of ideas to the creators of the original trilogy, which would be nice to implement in the next part of this cult project.
Stalker: weapon choice
The plot of this book revolves around two completely opposite characters, namely, a researcher nicknamed the Chemist and a stupid, but very capable stalker nicknamed A Fistful. These people get along well with each other and are partners. One day, while habitually working for one of the local hucksters, they take on a mission to track down a certain person and then get into big trouble, from which they can't just get out.
Partners are pulled into a deadlyan anomaly, but, to the surprise of the heroes, it does not kill, but throws it into an unknown place, which turns out to be a closed local area. It has nothing to do with the real world and it is possible to get out of it only by finding a way to "pierce" the space. To the delight of partners, it is there that the old research complexes of the military are located, who worked on electromagnetic weapons and experimented with space. In other words, there is no doubt that this local area was accidentally created by military scientists during experiments on the territory of the anomalous zone.
The title of the book - "Stalker: choice of weapons", hints that the heroes will have to make a very difficult and difficult choice. Not only to take a certain side, but also to choose the right weapon for the most dangerous journey through the labyrinths of underground utilities and through this mysterious area.
Andrey Levitsky, the author of this book, decided to write a full-fledged trilogy about the adventures of two partners and opened it with this book. The author masterfully described not only the world of the exclusion zone, but also the relationship between various groups and even between hucksters and stalkers. The idea, although it does not claim to be the best, but, at the same time, fits perfectly into the concept of the game world. The anomalous zone, filled with mutants, is itself filled with gravitational anomalies and unusual phenomena that go against the laws of physics. Why not assume that the territory of the "Zone" has become a kind of "hyper-area", fromwhich can open passages not only to local closed areas, like the one where the heroes of the novel were thrown, but also full-fledged doors to parallel worlds!
Andrey Levitsky started this idea with a simple one, but developed it intelligently and competently. Throughout the plot, not only of this book, but also of others, he does not endow the characters with any special abilities. It demonstrates that the characters gradually understand how multidimensional space works. Getting into trouble and traveling through the laboratories, they learn a lot of new things that no one else knows.
The logical continuation of the novel "S T A L K E R: choice of weapons" develops over two more books, namely "Heart of the Zone" and "Three against the Zone." The time gaps between events in the novels are insignificant, we can say that the plot is almost inseparable.
