Chernobyl Liquidators Simulator Preview

On April 26, 1986, the Chernobyl nuclear reactor near Pripyat, Ukraine exploded. In the weeks, months and years that followed, some 600,000 civil and military personnel were brought in to contain the catastrophe — the Chernobyl liquidators. Estimates put the number of immediate deaths around 50, but several thousand liquidators are thought to have later died in the aftermath.
