A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

This is a short and simple game about exploring 3D environment in realistic period setting. The game is currently unfinished and will receive updates.

Here is a short video from the game on my twitter.

This game is about wandering around city streets, exploring the atmosphere, listening to sounds. Spend as much or as little time in game as you like. There is no endpoint, no gameplay challenge. In video game terms, this software can be described as an "empty level" or a "walking simulator".

This game visuals are inspired by 20th century european history: the drab reality of life behind the iron curtain. See what the atmosphere of everyday life in Czechoslovakia might have been like sometime in the early 1980s. The environment is modeled after old derelict buildings I photographed in Prague between 2017-2020. While the urbanscape is left in its contemporary condition, with graffitied facades and modern details, these structures were chosen for their state of decay is closely reminiscent to what european cities in Eastern Bloc were like. This comparison will later be supported in-game with a display of real-life photographs.

Download is free and available down below.

Where is the car that is driveable? And what key do you press to enter it?

Right now it's the blue car in parking lot infront of the building with elevator (go right and turn right from where the game starts, then on the left). Press E or mouse wheel when near it.
