Kholat, a game of survival and exploration, is available now for Windows, DRM-free on GOG.com with a launch 10% discount.
February 2, 1959. A group of hikers sets up camp on the eastmost side of Kholat Syakhl, Russia. A snowstorm rages.
February 3, 1959. There are no survivors. Nine bodies are strewn across the campsite and surrounding areas. Half-dressed, barefoot. Cuts in the tent indicate a frantic escape.
May 4, 1959. Authorities determine an “unknown, compelling force” to be the cause of the deaths.
Narrated by Sean Bean, Kholat takes place years after the infamous Dyatlov Pass incident, so named after the leader of the lost expedition. In it you’ll traverse the treacherous forests of Dyatlov Pass on your search for the truth behind the mysterious tragedy. Explore an open world, relying on nothing more than a map, a compass and your instincts to survive the darkness that lurks beneath. If a real-life mystery and gameplay inspired by titles like Amnesia or Dear Esther aren’t enough to pique your interest, then maybe “experimental horror game” will. In the words of the developers themselves, “Kholat is a game that doesn’t follow mainstream game design rules but creates its own”.
Kholat is available now, DRM-free on GOG.com! The 10% launch discount will last until June 22, 10:59 PM GMT.
