Beholder Short Film Captures the Game's Atmosphere

Fan film showcases the Beholder's world

Beholder is an indie hit that released back in 2016 that has players controlling a landlord in charge of a large apartment complex and tasked with spying on the residents for a totalitarian government. It was a difficult choice-based game that had players making difficult decisions relating to the people fighting against the government or protecting the protagonist's family. Recently, a short filmed was released that does the game justice.


“We are preserving the approach that we have developed while working on the Papers, Please adaptation: we try to vividly depict the original game and avoid adding any imagined details,’ says Nikita, ‘That's why we’ve decided to go with a black-and-white reproduction, drop the dialogues and stick to a silent movie. We believe that this approach will help us convey the grim atmosphere of the game best.” - Nikita Ordynskiy, Founder at KINODOM

The film titled Beholder from KINODOM captures the atmosphere and tension of the world. Told entirely without dialogue and simply using actions to convey motives it's a gripping film that will make any fan of the series look on in joy.
