Test Your Moral Compass in a Bleak Dystopian World.

Press release:
Siberia, Russia – April 18, 2016 – Alawar and Warm Lamp Games today announced that their dystopia simulator Beholder, available on Steam for PC, MAC and Linux, will soon receive a major DLC pack called Blissful Sleep. Keeping the totalitarian atmosphere of the original Beholder, the DLC transports players back in time, telling the pre-story of the events that happened in the house before The Ministry of Introductions appointed Carl as the snitching landlord, who is torn by moral choices on a daily basis.

“After the successful launch of Beholder last year, we saw how involved people got into the narrative so we decided to start working on a DLC pack introducing the backstory of the original game”, said Evgeny Sister, Producer at Alawar. “As a cog in a totalitarian machine players face an unrelenting dystopian reality: the laws are oppressive, people are under complete surveillance and privacy is non-existent. They must decide whether to keep ‘the machine’ running smoothly or to follow their gut and choose a more ethical course of action.”

The Beholder: Blissful Sleep DLC introduces several deeper, more complicated character backgrounds and shocking story twists taking place in the same Krushvice 6 house before the original storyline begins. The State laws have become more oppressive than ever, disrupting the lives of the people and leaving them miserable and in search of salvation. Players continue to operate under strict totalitarian rules, everyday making moral choices that eventually lead to one of several story endings available.

Inspired heavily by George Orwell’s groundbreaking 1984 the philosophical narrative of Beholder, opens up questions around issues of social and moral values. 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? Who decides what is deserved? And what if two different people deserve to be saved, but one has to go? Who will you choose?
