Kholat Update #17 - Official Release Trailer
Kholat - Steam page launched!
Release date: 2014
Kholat is an adventure-horror game inspired by true event known as Dyatlov Pass incident – mysterious death of nine Russian hikers, that led to countless, unconfirmed hypotheses. Player will dive directly into boundless scenery of inhospitable Ural Mountains, with task to find out what really happened. In the course of events you may approach even more question marks.

Will you find the answer?
Will you get any closer to the truth?
Will you survive?

Dyatlov Pass incident was a real story that happened in winter of 1959. Nine skilled alpinists went for a trip to the northern part of Ural Mountains, which ended fatally. Bodies of expedition's crew were found scattered on slope of Kholat Syakhl.

Russian investigators closed the case stating that "a compelling unknown force" had caused the deaths.

If you were inspired by this story to create a game, may I suggest another? The Lake Bodom murders in the 1960's. A group of teens in Finland went camping near Lake Bodom. Over the course of the night, the teens would disappear, only one survived. There was no sign of a struggle and there was no evidence of a struggle. And there was no evidence stating that this said individual was the muderer. But due to this cold case in Finland, it has also been an inspiration for one metal band, Children of Bodom. I would highly recommend making a game out of the Lake Bodom Murders, using the Grim Reaper as the culprit.

Extremely interested and have been keeping an eye on it for half a year, but not sure about an $18 pre-order. Going to have to let other early-adopters take the lead on this, and I'll wait for reviews.

This looks incredibly interesting. I can't wait to see the finished product.
