Today, Warm Lamp Games and Alawar Premium announced that their new game, Beholder 2, will be released later today at 7PM PST. It will be released in a 3D format while taking place in the same grim and hopeless dystopian universe as the first game.
With its strong Orwellian theme, the first original Beholder game garnered the attention of multiple publications and gaming communities and was featured on Metacritic’s 100 Most Talked About Games of 2016 list. It was also awarded IGN Russia’s Best Adventure Game of 2016, one of 8 finalists of GDC’s Best in Play 2017 and was recognized in numerous categories at Moscow’s DevGamm Awards. Beholder 2 intends to deliver the same award-winning experience to players.
In Beholder 2, you have recently been employed as the department officer within The Ministry, the totalitarian government at the head of the dystopian world. Throughout its point-and-click gameplay, you can make choices that will have consequences on the story, or take on quests eventually leading to one of several different endings.
In addition to news of the launch, Beholder: Complete Edition, which includes the base game and DLC, will be released on Nintendo Switch on December 6th, 2018.
Beholder 2 will be released today at 7PM PST on Mac and PC via Steam for $14.99. Owners of the original game will automatically receive a 20% coupon for the game. For more information, visit the official Steam page.
