The original Beholder game was released in November 2016, and was a quick success with the gaming community, winning a spot on Metacritic’s 100 Most Talked About Games of 2016. Beholder 2 launched in 2018 and fans continued to enjoy the thrills and chills inside Beholder’s twisted Dystopian Universe. Together with Paintbucket Games, Alawar Premium intends to deliver the same award-winning experience to players.

“We played the Beholder game back when they came out and loved them for telling stories of human tragedies in an inhumane system in an entertaining and clever way. So naturally, when given the opportunity to develop Beholder 3, we felt extremely honored and excited.” – Jörg Friedrich, CEO at Paintbucket Games

Different political factions are fighting for power. Pick your side wisely.

What awaits you with Beholder 3?!
You are Frank Schwarz, a husband, and father who lost his cushy office job at the Ministry after someone set him up. The only way to avoid jail time was to make a deal with a high-ranking security officer. When the high-ranking security officer saves you from prison, you end up a pawn in her schemes. Now you must eliminate anyone standing in the way of her secret plans and try to get your life back while working two jobs. No tenant, employee or superior is safe from your spying. A totalitarian state that controls everything and everyone through oppressive laws, total surveillance, and intimidation.

Can you get your old life back, or even something better?
Will you fight for change and truth or uphold the status quo?
Who are you willing to sacrifice to get what you want?


  • Work two jobs: in an apartment block and in the Ministry.
  • Different political factions are fighting for power. Pick your side wisely.
  • Complete quests from the Ministry: promote the ideology of the totalitarian state, manipulate flags and spread whatever propaganda you’re told to.
  • Install surveillance cameras and search apartments and offices.
  • Maintain your cover by doing everyday chores like paying bills, fixing up apartments, and keeping your tenants happy.
