About

If someone has to live in the totalitarian society, that person has to work not to become a victim of it. Carl, a state-appointed landlord, has to spy on the tenants and to receive orders from the government. But to follow them or to dismiss them is up to the player, controlling Carl. Players will have to eavesdrop, bug the apartments of tenants, search through their personal items and complete quests, given to them by the higher ups. The moral choice system will take note of every action players will make, and every decision will have consequences. Much like in a similar in spirit game “Papers, please,” a government worker has to report any suspicious activity or anyone involved in suspicious activity. Beholder has multiple endings, and each of them is a compilation of player-made choices over the course of the game. Each tenant has their own personality, distinct appearance, conditions, and issues. It’s up to the player, to empathize with the lives of the tenant, or to follow orders.

Is there any reason the second game has been taken off the Uk Switch store recently?

Beholder reviews and comments

Game is fun and amusing how to reinvent the tenants. But you have to blackmail a lot because the family wants a lot of money quickly. Too fast and hard then to create everything. Sometimes you do not know how to go on because apparently a person is missing the break. To make a little more money less at one go and still not miss anything would be my suggestion. And I only played on training (easy). Build the game more, little more help or tip requests if it does not work. Saving with Cloud spins by the way totally and then nothing works because there is a cancel button if the junk does not work! But you can buy it for the price. What I really like is the voice of the little daughter. She speaks s and witty: D

The game is nice at first. As promised, there are several ends, however the ends are always about the same (the government does not want you anymore). And when you start again, it will always be with the same characters around you and the same tireless quest. The game was promising on paper, but absolutely not in practice. Wait only a few hours of play of this application before you totally disinterested. So too expensive for what it is. Despite everything, I still think there is a potential hidden work from developers, and I encourage them. Dear Citizen, thank you for submitting your report. We will forward it to our Ministry of Order for further consideration. In case you have any more questions / suggestions please contact us via https://support.creative-mobile.com/Tickets/Submit We'll get back to you ASAP! Yours, Ministry of Citizen Security / G

I'm a little bit annoyed that the developers obviously assume that they are inevitably rebelling against the state. Right at the beginning I had my wife and son rattling and the daughter also died. Reported every rule violation. But in the end I was killed because I "and my family", which did not exist anymore Had tried to leave the country when was this attempt to take place? Also in the dialogues one notices that the way of playing actually hardly affects one and one on this one way "fixed" is. Would be nice if there was a chance to win the game "Regelkomform" so only a bit of disappointment at the end After several hours of play time. In general, several logic mistakes in the story are an example of ownership and the reading of books are prohibited. Nevertheless, there is a library a librarian and searchable bookshelves in which you can not find a book ... meaning?
An interesting concept marred by repetitive gameplay and awful grammar. The game mostly felt like busywork, being given errands to do in a certain amount of time, so there wasn't much opportunity to play around and try things out. Also, there were at least a few requests that I couldn't understand what they wanted or what I was supposed to do until I stumbled upon the answer. Luckily those are pretty rare, and usually you can piece together what they're trying to say.

Overall if the concept really interests you then give it a try, but keep your expectations low.
