Two years ago, Alex "Koan" Sitjanov released a package into the care of Loxotron, a rather prominent S.T.A.L.K.E.R. community member. This package, known as Koan's Gift, contained design documents for S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Oblivion Lost, including the original story draft, gameplay proposal, level descriptions, game flow etc.

The original release went more or less unnoticed, so we at No Mutants Allowed decided to make up for this. Over the course of the next three days, we'll be releasing the documents (along with something extra) for everyone to enjoy.

Today's English Day; enjoy those design documents from the package that were released in English:

story.doc - storyline summary, with a vastly different plot than the one on Shadow of Chernobyl (13 pages)

OldDesigneDocument Story.doc - the ancient design document describing gameplay in Oblivion Lost: gunplay, factions, stalker interaction, mutants, weapons... (65 pages, includes storyline summary)

Tomorrow's Russian Day and much, much more. For the time being, enjoy a small gallery companion.
