Jalopy

Beware is an original survival horror by the Czech developer Ondøej Švadlena, the creator of the short animation MRDRCHAIN – the winner of The Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival. The game is co-founded by the players.

Plot

In Beware, we assume the role of a car driver who is travelling through a gloomy, communist country in order to gather information. The hero constantly needs to fight for survival, as he is chased by other road users trying to spoil his mission.

The author drew inspiration from his childhood spent in Czechoslovakia where his family suffered repression by the totalitarian regime. Eventually, young Ondøej Švadlena and his mother managed to escape the country and settled in Canada. Once the Iron Curtain fell, he returned to Europe and stayed in Germany.

Mechanics

Beware features the first-person perspective. Similarly to the first part of Driver, we do not step out of the car, which is modelled on communist technologies. The game offers an open world where we can freely travel and accomplish quests. Gameplay is diversified not only by encounters with other drivers but also car chases inspired by action movies from the 70s. There are also missions which require extreme caution.

Technical aspects

Beware creates its atmosphere of fear with the soundtrack and the use of grim colours. Furthermore, a fog constantly lay over the country, and the only source of light during the night is few lanterns and the car lamps.
