Kholat is a FPP storytelling/experience game, developed by an independent studio IMGN.PRO and inspired by true events known as the “Dyatlov Pass Incident”. We follow the path of a group of Russian students, that went for an expedition in the northern Ural Mountains. The team does not reach its goal and the entire crew dies in mysterious circumstances.
The rescue expedition is being sent. They find the tent, which is cut from the inside. Students bodies, incompletely dressed, are found within a radius of several hundred meters. Everything points to some kind of event, that caused sudden panic, which led to the tragic, chaotic escape. In most cases, death occurs as a result of chilling, but some bodies have other strange damage signs. The player is thrown into the area where the tragedy occurred, years after the actual event, with a chance to discover the real course of tragic events.
