Svoboda 1945: Liberation is a narrative game that uses footage of real actors to tell an interweaving story about the aftermath of the Second World War.

NotesAccessibility Notes


There is never any need to do things quickly or have fast reactions, as the game mostly revolves around conversations where you have as long as you need to choose a reply/dialogue option.

While some of the text is fairly small and of low contrast to the background, the subtitles are large and clear. While there is voice acting, it is in Czech.

The conversations you have are shot with a real camera so there is motion blur and depth of field, but these are mostly shot from a locked-off perspective and facing a mostly static subject. The other parts of the game have no motion blur and are also mostly static.
