Welcome to a world in which the state stands above all and has everything under its control. You play as Carl Stein, an employee of this state that is responsible for managing a residential complex. It is your task to check your tenants, whether they respect the law or not (something which will prove to be quite pointless in the end) and to record this if necessary and report it to the ministry. It is up to you what to actually submit to the system, but it this can have very direct, dramatic consequences on your life and family. I have to admit the game pulled me in longer than I expected. The story has so far been very successful in intriguing me by interrupting the gameplay every few minutes with new events, which make the game very entertaining. Tasks of tenants, the ministry and your family are very diverse and varied. The micromanagement of both your tenants and your money are demanding but not too exaggerated (at least in normal mode). This is a game that challenges your morality and ethics, but it's still a very nice, fun pastime. How long will you endure playing as a landlord with a hidden agenda?
I really enjoy this game, and could quite easily sit here for hours ignoring all my responsibilities. There are moments where it is difficult and it can be frustrating trying to time everything and not 'fail' any objectives, but it's because of that that I find it most rewarding. Overall I think this game is great!
A very interesting game, where you are a landlord of a house in a very oppressive communist dictatorship. Your objective is to manage the house, make moral decisions trying to survive with your family by keeping the leadership satisfied without your conscience eating you alive. If you played Papers, Please the setting must be somewhat familiar, though the game mechanics are quite different: spying on your tenants, writing reports on them, framing them, turning them in, or you can choose no to do it, and trying to help them. If you liked Papers, Please, this one is also for you. Highly recommended!
Dirty, gray, dystopian. These words probably best describe the world in which we came to be the manager of the building. The world in which we must learn to make decisions from the very beginning, even the most difficult because delaying them can have even more terrible effects. The game is forcing us to think and the during game comes out we really are... worth checking out.
This is a very fun game! I picked it up because I was intrigued by the premise, and I absolutely love the art style. I was also looking for an engaging game that isn't too hyper--for times when I want to relax but still have a challenge. Beholder will be one of my favourite games to turn to during those times. Time passing at it's finest!
