Kholat “The Light is On” Trailer and Game Info – September 2, 2014

Kholat is an adventure-horror game by indie developer IMGN.PRO. It takes its inspiration from the Dyatlov Pass Incident, which really happened and left many unanswered questions.

Players will dive directly into the expansive and inhospitable Ural Mountains and explore the incident’s many mysteries in an attempt to discover the truth.

In the winter of 1959, nine skilled, experienced  alpinists went ski-hiking in the northern Ural Mountains in the former Soviet Union. They were never seen alive again.

The broken, mutilated bodies of all nine hikers were found scattered on the slope of Kholat Syakhl which, in the language of the indigenous Mansi tribesmen, means Mountain of the Dead.

Russian investigators ultimately declared that the hikers were killed by “a compelling unknown force.” Due to the “absence of a guilty party,” the case was closed.

To this day, no one knows what really happened.

Game Features:

  • Fear manager: a tool responsible for the game’s tension
  • A self-made story inspired by true events
  • A main storyline as well as plenty of background information to be discovered by players
  • In-game navigation by map and compass

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
