Remember “Driver,” one of the first semi-open-world games out there? If you’re a fan of the cult-classic but also taken aback by unnerving scenery and brooding mysteries, you should definitely try out “Beware”, an indie horror driving game.
What the Fudge Is “Beware”?
As Beware’s creator put it, the title is an open-world, exploration- and stealth-based game that puts the players in the shoes of a driver who sets out to “gather information.” Yes, that’s right – in this game you’ll need to steer, break, and hit that gas pedal to get away from other crazy drivers.
The game’s uniqueness comes from the blend of horror and driving. So far, Beware seems to be the first title that compels players to unravel a horror-like plot from the questionable safety of his car.
Note that all we know about the game comes from the demo, which was recently added to IndieDB.com.
The beginning kind of reminds us of Kholat, another Indie horror masterpiece, but the fog and 70s style car-chase-like camera panning takes everything to an entirely different level. It’s like Silent Hill, only with homicidal phantom drivers and, obviously, lots of driving.
As the game’s indieDB description suggests, Beware is still under development, so we should expect more surprises along the way.
Thus far, we’ve only driven around for a couple of miles and outraced a dude in a fancy car who was hell-bent on ramming our car.
We have to admit that, for an indie title, the world is astoundingly rich in details, with a soundtrack to match. If you can get passed the rudimentary UI and the slightly confusing menu, Beware will surely grow on you.
Launch-wise, we don’t know for sure what to expect from the title. Still, if you’re interested in Beware, be sure to hop on to indieDB and download the demo.
