The 2015 indie survival horror game Kholat is now headed to the Nintendo Switch in a limited physical release of only 3,800 copies, which is available to pre-order from the Red Art Games website for $35 (around PHP1,600).
Billed as “the most terrifying journey of your life”, Switch owners can now experience this horror game created by Polish indie developer IMGN.PRO and narrated by famous British actor Sean Bean.
Kholat is an exploration adventure game with elements of horror inspired by the event known as Dyatlov Pass Incident. The player will plunge directly into the boundless scenery of the inhospitable Ural Mountains with the task of finding out what really happened. Controlling the main character you trace the steps of a group of nine Russian college students who went missing in February 1959 on Kholat Syakhl.
The game is told through a first-person horror adventure framework and presents an atmospheric storyline of intrigue and mystery. With standard survival equipment including map, compass and flashlight, the player must balance their health and well being with the challenges that unfold.
Kholat is available now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
