DescriptionKholat is a survival horror video game. It is based on the Dyatlov Pass incident, where a group of nine Russian college students went missing in February 1959 on Kholat Syakhl ("Dead Mountain") and were found dead in the time span of four months. The tenth student walked back earlier due to illness. The player controls the protagonist who is retracing the steps of the students.
The game consists of three main acts in which the player has to eventually reach the scene of the Dyatlov Pass incident. By use of a map and compass system, the mountain pass has to be explored, using basic movements as walking and sprinting. Jumping nor climbing is possible. The sprinting is limited, with excessive use leading to motion impairment and vision blurring. The sprint is mostly used to escape to safety after the brief encounters you have with the mountain’s hostile “fire spirits”. Failure to escape from a "fire spirit", stepping into a trap or falling of ledges will result in an instant death. The game has limiting abilities to save your game, only when you’re visiting one of the established camp sites strewn around the pass or whenever you find a new note, article or journal page strewn across the mountain pass.
