You can grab a free to keep copy of Beholder on Steam

By - | Views: 9,444

Beholder, a very well-reviewed game about being a state-installed landlord in a totalitarian country is currently available free for keeps on Steam. You might want to act fast on this one, as it seems the free to keep period ends tomorrow, November 11.

"A totalitarian State controls every aspect of private and public life. Laws are oppressive. Surveillance is total. Privacy is dead. You are the State-installed manager of an apartment building. Your daily routine involves making the building a sweet spot for tenants, who will come and go.

However, that is simply a facade that hides your real mission...

The State has appointed you to SPY ON YOUR TENANTS! Your primary task is to covertly watch your tenants and eavesdrop on their conversations. You must BUG their apartments while they're away, SEARCH their belongings for whatever can threaten the authority of the State, and PROFILE them for your superiors. You must also REPORT anyone capable of violating the laws or plotting subversive activities against the State to the authorities."

Why are they doing this? Clearly it's a quick bit of marketing for the upcoming Beholder 3, which releases early in 2022.

I dunno about being a Beholder. When you're a Beholder, people will kill you just to get the beauty in your eye.

Well, better a beholder than a bee holder. That's a vocation that stings!

On a more serious note, I hope the release of the sequel goes well. Giving away games must surely give publicity and bring in sales at some point, because everyone seems to be doing it. All the time.

I made a rough estimate, and I have picked up close to 100 gratis titles so far this year. That's just from GOG/Steam/Epic and only redeeming the games that look at least mildly interesting.

And, ooh, look, while writing this, another giveaway, SteamWorld Dig 2 on GOG!

Thanks both of you for pointing out!
I don't grab as many games by far, but did get SteamWorld Dig 2. It might be one of the games that are more collected than actually played on my side, though. :)
