5. Kholat

Kholat official release trailer

Deep in the Ural Mountains, you must uncover a mystery and survive.

In 1959, nine hikers went missing in the Ural Mountains. Known as the Dyatlov Pass Incident, the story is still a bit of a mystery. This is the basis of the story behind Kholat.

An indie survival horror, you take on the role of an adventurer who has the chance to explore and discover where the events occurred so see if you can make sense of any of it.

This game is unsettling in its own right. The mystery of what happened is still just that: a mystery. Theories from avalanches and hypothermia, all the way down to a yeti attack have been made in an attempt to truly understand what went down. You won’t find the answer, because there isn’t one, but you will experience the fear.

The game is narrated by Sean Bean, which is a treat for anyone who is a fan.

The overall creep factor of this game for me is an 8 out of 10 based on the fact that it’s based on a true story. Also, the thought of being stranded in the woods and hunted by something terrifies me!
