Beholder is a game where you are a spy, but not in the typical sense that you’re likely used to. This time, you’re a spy for an oppressive totalitarian state who wishes to keep an eye on everyone and everything at all times. To help in this effort, Beholder places you, Carl, as the new building manager of an apartment building. The Ministry has tasked you with spying on your tenants, and collecting information in your pursuit to find anyone doing anything against the wishes of the state.
Beholder is somewhat linear, but it presents you with a lot of choices, and those choices have consequences. What type of person you are entirely depends on you. Are you a good little soldier that will ruin lives just because the state demands it of you, or will you go somewhat rouge, and help good people stay out of trouble in this oppressive place? What sorts of consequences do you face for your decisions? That’s the type of game this is.
I hope you enjoy this series. I intend to play it for as long as there is interest in it.
