|Warm Lamp Games’ “Beholder” Launches on Steam Today|
|Siberia, Russia – November 10, 2016 – Warm Lamp Games announces that Beholder (published by Alawar Entertainment) has launched on Steam today. Beholder places you in a hopelessly grim existence where every choice you make can have devastating consequences for your neighbors.
You’ll have many important moral choices to make. The State has entrusted you with a very important job. You’ve been installed as an apartment house manager to keep a close eye (and ear) on its tenants. Spy and eavesdrop on the tenants in your complex, and search their apartments and install bugs while they’re away. Use what you uncover to profile people and report on anyone capable of violating the (many) laws or plotting subversion against the State. It is your choice to decide the fate of everyone’s lives within your influence.
Created in Siberia, Russia, Beholder is heavily inspired by George Orwell’s groundbreaking novel, “1984.” The philosophical narrative of Beholder opens up questions around issues of social and moral values. If you are given the power to destroy privacy, should you follow the orders of the giver or treat those that you spy on the way they deserve?
– You decide what happens: Every decision of yours affects the way the story unfolds. The only thing that matters is the choice that you make when interacting with the game characters. Even a minor decision can have a disastrous impact. So, think twice and be wise!
– They aren’t just objects: Every character that you meet in the game has a thoroughly considered personality with their own past and present. Tens of characters create a unique puzzle of relationships where you have to communicate and decide on your further steps.
– The choice is going to be tough: If you are given power to destroy privacy, should you follow the orders of the giver? Or should you treat those that you spy on, the way they deserve? But who decides what is deserved? What if two different people deserve to be saved, but one has to go? Who will you choose? Is there a lesser evil, anyway?
– You don’t know where you’ll end up: Beholder is a game of multiple endings. You will have enough info to consider and decide wisely, but there is always something that you may not be aware of. Well, this is not a beautifully calibrated virtual reality! This is life! And it’s real!
Beholder is available today on Steam PC, Mac, and Linux at:
Beholder Steam Page for $9.99 and supports English, Russian, German, French and Chinese. Beholder will be available at a 20% release discount from November 9 through November 16, 2016
