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!
Imagine Papers Please but from the standpoint of someone further into the city than the border guard. You manage an apartment in clearly-not-soviet-Russia-istan and work with the Government to spy on the citizens in your building all the while managing life with your wife, teenage boy and young daughter. You spy using cameras and by peeping through windows for any illegal or noteworthy activity to either profile or report your tennants. It's absorbing to say the least, as you patiently wait, watching your newly moved in tennant through a peephole, waiting for them to leave so you can ransack their appartment for information and good stuff to steal and then re-sell, cause damn it dude, I gotta get your rent money somehow. Amazing game for the price it is (specially with green man gaming disccount)
The sensational game that attracted a lot of positive feedback. Probably still it is because the developers had a small budget, thus making a very good game. But I am, nevertheless, failed to play it to the end and it has found its own reasons. The whole story, which begins with the eviction of the former caretaker of the property under the pen with the policeImmediately draws us into the game and its details gradually lures the inside of the basket with the "dirty laundry" of our guests. Well, you, my dear, you are a caretaker of the hotel, where you lived together with his family. It's like, your job is spying on your tenants,by extract information and podglyadok exposed by your cameras in their rooms. This alone indicates that you are not a very good person who will delve into the secrets of these people. But, as this is a great feature of the game, I'm not too hung up on this. I do not know about you,I always try to choose the human and acceptable for normal living options. But to be honest and good is impossible. Of course, in the beginning of the game, our boss will give the job to dig into your desktop and find a pair of cameras, after which they must be installed in the common dining room. Play a whistle - well established.But in the apartment to put them is not necessary. Of course, you are given the task and you can not give up on them, because the consequences would be, and then the game is over. But God be with him, we will sag under the command and set the camera only where told. What to do such work. And then begins Veselukha. Your family begin to throw your requests,that you can not afford. And then I realized that to find the money in this game is only one way. Actually, in real life and: steal, knock, make reports and so on. In general, to be a rat, which I badly wanted. And then my interest fell sharply for the game and I started it again, but this time I did not find an honest way to make money. Well,here I decided that my acquaintance with the game is over ... The game is completely linear story, just too much dialogue and Encyclopedias, because of which it seems that there are some random blotches generations. Yes, definitely, you can influence evicted any character or not, how and for what. That's all you are entitled to do.You can pass a few attempts to learn the characters, to make it easier to understand someone who can substitute, cheat and kill to build a strategy, but it is a game of God, and the interest is not the same, seeing the same actions. Perhaps due to the low budget, it was not possible to fully realize the idea of ??the authors of the game, but most likelyThey wanted to show that, as in real life, especially in those hard times, having a large family, it is necessary to go beyond what is permitted, stepping on their principles and do terrible things, closing their eyes. Evil for further peace of mind, this is the motto of the game, unfortunately. But to plunge into this game you just have to, very much here waiting for you.
