A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Dead Mountain Diary was made in 48 Hours for the Public Domain Game Jam by Tyler Robertson (that's me!), using Processing. It is based on the true events of the Dyatlov Pass Incident, February of 1959. Special thanks to Lauren Lark for telling me about that.

Controls: Use your MOUSE to find clues in the snow. LEFT CLICK moves your character, and RIGHT CLICK drops a flare (you only have ten!).

Note: This game has randomly-generated elements, so every player will have a slightly different experience. I want this game to be the start of a conversation-- so compare your play-through with a friend's!

This game is Public Domain! The source code is available as a .PDE (Processing File) in the "Source" folder included in your download! Use and abuse it! Let me know if you have questions or comments about anything I wrote.

Install instructions

Because of how Processing exports applications, each file is a .ZIP that you will have to uncompress with the application of your choice. Once unzipped, run the application titled "Dead_Mountain_Diary" and you'll be good to go!
