The subject matter of this article was cut from the final version of a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game.

Time is an anomaly cut from S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl.


"A true miracle of an anomaly: an area several meters in diameter where the time flow is significantly slower than usual. Appears to have no negative effect on human health. However, the Time Machine can be very difficult to get out of. Interestingly, removing Mama's Beads – an artifact usually found in the center of the anomaly – causes the Time Machine to disappear."


  • This is the only data of Time (machine) left in Shadow of Chernobyl.
  • While the anomaly has been removed from the game, the artifact it creates has not been removed.
  • This anomaly appears to have been superseded by the Space Anomaly in S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Clear Sky.
