Game Information

Available on:PlayStation 4Jan 16, 2018
Xbox OneJan 16, 2018

Developer: Curve Digital

Genre: Strategy

You’re a Government-installed landlord in a totalitarian State. Your job is to spy on tenants, peep into their lives, eavesdrop on their conversations and profile everyone to ensure laws are beyond obeyed and the State is kept happy.

Anyone caught plotting against the State’s ever-changing laws MUST be reported.

But will you?

Set in a dystopian world where privacy is dead and the State controls every aspect of life, it’s your choice to continue being what the State requires, or be the empathetic landlord who turns a blind eye. All your choices will have consequences , and the consequences will be yours to deal with.

Beholder Complete Edition also contains the Blissful Sleep DLC, a new scenario based on an ex-landlord, with all new tenants and stories to discover.

Beholder is an intriguing concept and thematically rather strong, as it twists and exaggerates a Cold War totalitarian surveillance state into the form of a video game. However, with a sequel on the way, we hope that Warm Lamp can improve on an idea that's rather rough around the edges but is dying to be fleshed out further.

Beholder: Complete Edition is a bit too much like an exhausting job, a job that I wished I could quit after a while.

the game will still play the same: spy, report, build relationships, and try not to get shot in the face.

Beholder: Complete Edition is a fun strategy game. Its gorgeous yet subtle dystopian aesthetic illustrates a totalitarian world on the brink of revolution, with an interesting set of characters and soundtrack to boot. But while it's geared towards player agency, it can feel like you're under the thumb of the state more often than not, and that means you may feel forced to walk a path you didn't necessarily choose.
