Totalitarian Dystopian Simulation “Beholder” Launches on November 9 for Steam
Alawar and Warm Lamp Games today announced that a dystopian simulator Beholder will launch on Steam for PC, MAC and Linux on November 9. In Beholder you play as Carl, a state-installed Landlord living in a totalitarian State who must spy on tenants, eavesdrop on them and place wiretaps and cameras to build profiles and report on anyone capable of plotting subversion against the State.
Evgeny Sister Producer at Alawar Entertainment accompanied the press release with the following statement:
“Every choice in Beholder has a direct consequence, as you live in a dystopian future where a totalitarian State owns your life, laws are oppressive, surveillance is total and privacy is dead”, said Evgeny Sister, Producer at Alawar. “Actions during Beholder require a moral decision – as a family man, do you report on a doctor, who may be an underground revolutionary? But what if he is the only one able to heal your child?”
Check out the Trailer:
“Just like in Papers, Please, there’s an option to report on people who violate the strict rules of the despotic and oppressive government institution. Reporting people will keep you safe but will you be willing to betray people simply trying to survive?
Part of the appeal of Beholder is that the game relies heavily on the choice of the player and the consequences that follow. They don’t say exactly what the consequences are but it doesn’t take long to find out while you play.”
