Forced Encounter (Kongo in the Rear Mirror)
The game portrays the war in Kongo 1961 and the consequences it had for four Swedish soldiers that were part of it. The scenario was inspired by Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness (1902), Jonas Waern’s Katanga (1980), Claes Löfgren’s Fredsknektarna (Squires of Peace) (1990) and numerous articles from newspaper archives and own experiences of the downside of life.
