GameZone writes: "Murder mysteries are only as good as the mystery at hand. That's good news for Dead Mountaineer's Hotel, a game with source material that goes a bit deeper than the average programmer's gobbledygook. "Dead Mountaineer's Hotel is one of the most impressive novels, written by the Strugatsky brothers in their early period of work," said Producer Sergey Kiselev. "The story is told by the detective officer Glebsky, who came to the hotel to spend his vacation. He was occasionally involved into investigation of a mysterious crime connected with the aliens."
