Kholat is a game focused on experience and storytelling, largely by means of visual medium. In order to provide best graphics quality possible, we made a decision to switch to the Unreal Engine 4. Last month was spent on porting of all the game assets and now we’re ready to share the effects of our work.
“The Light is On” Trailer shows the initial game location – the town of Ivdel. It’s where the actual story of Dyatlov Pass Incident starts, as well as the first place witnessed by the Kholat protagonist. We put a lot of research efforts into recreating the environment as closely as it really is. A good example is the accurately recreated Ivdel Train Station – a place where the ill-fated train carrying Dyatlov group arrived on 25th January 1959.
