Beholder DLC 'Blissful Sleep' Arrives this May
The "Blissful Sleep" DLC for Beholder
will be released on May 18, 2017, according to Alawar and Warm Lamp Games. This DLC, coming to Steam
for PC, Mac, and Linux, will take players back in time to allow them to experience the events of what happened "in the house before The Ministry of Introductions appointed Carl as the snitching landlord."
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, every day 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 the 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?
