* ResourcesManagementGameplay: Besides your health and ammo, you also have to manage your temperature, which drops quicker the colder the room your are in is, and can only be restored by the limited number of warming drinks in the base. You even have to manage the temperature of the rooms in the base, as leaving doors open to exposed areas or much colder sections (like the freezing main hallway) will result in the temperature of that room dropping rapidly. Just like a ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' game, there's also a limited number of save items.

* TankControls: While the game mostly uses standard first-person controls, attempting to run backwards causes your character to turn around 180 degrees instead, just like in an old Survival Horror game. This is actually pretty important for combat, as enemies move faster than you if you simply back away from them while facing them.

He managed to crash the snowcat just outside the base, and the remaining researchers were stranded due to being unable to reach his body and get the keys to the spare snowcat back.
