“You are a newly employed department officer within the Ministry of a totalitarian State. While you are poised to have an illustrious career and possibly become Prime Minister someday, the way up won’t be easy. So, how high up the career ladder will you climb? The choice is still yours to make!” –  Evgeny Sister, Producer – Alawar Premium

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.

“Beholder 2 shows another side to the Orwellian dystopia – ‘The Ministry.’ While we continued to stick with rich stories, moral choices and multiple endings — this time we’ve ramped up on the overall absurdity.” – Evgeny Sister, Producer – Alawar Premium

Every citizen of our great State dreams of working at the Prime Ministry!

  • Have you already decided what you’re going to become?
  • Will you become a diligent and responsible officer decorated by the Wise Leader himself?
  • Or will you become a hardline careerist capable of destroying anyone who stands between you and the Prime Minister’s seat?
  • Or maybe you are just a whistle-blower?
  • Whatever the case, you are now part of the Ministry!
  • From this moment on, no one beyond these walls has ascendancy over you!
  • So, what are you going to become?
