Beholder 

 

Okay so Family Friendly Gaming was offered a digital downloadable code for Beholder on Steam. I looked at the pictures and said I wanted to review it. The PR contact kindly sent us a code for this PC video game. Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it. I should have read about Beholder. I was shocked to find out the goal of this game. We are supposed to spy on the tenants and report them to the government.

Beholder makes me think of Russia in the Cold War, or Democrats in power in America. Beholder even started out in some foreign language. I stumbled around until I found the way to put Beholder into English. Then I found out I got to play a nosy land lord. If you thought Tomodachi Life was a creepy voyeuristic game then you will definitely be bothered by Beholder on Steam. The dark graphics and illegally putting cameras in apartments made me realize how controlling big government is.

I am not sure what the goal of Beholder is. We are given choices to decide if we want to serve the people and freedom or the government. Will you do what is asked of you? If you don't then you could wind up like the last landlord. He is beaten up and taken away by the police. Does the threat of your own freedom make you willing to fight for it? Beholder even lets you avoid sleeping. The government injected you with an experimental drug. Don't Do Drugs!

I liked the music in the intro portion of Beholder. After the game got going I found the music to be creepy. I believe Beholder teaches us that big government is bad. It also taught me socialism and communism are evil. I had to break into people's apartments to investigate them, and install cameras to try and find some dirt on them. Let the cops beat up and haul of others to keep my own family safe.

The controls are a bit weird for me. We move the camera around by pressing the directional keys on the keyboard. We then tap with the mouse were we want our character to go. Tapping on the mouse also initiates conversations and interactions with objects. The dark graphics in Beholder are not to my personal preference. Too much like that disgusting Limbo game for me.
