We become what we behold as a casual 5-minute point-and-click game about news cycles, vicious cycles, and infinite cycles. Capture moments with your camera and see how the squares and circles react!

How to Play We Become What We Behold

The game features multiple characters randomly walking about on the screen. The only move you can make is to photograph these characters. When you aim and shoot, the photo you capture appears in the middle of the screen and is displayed on a small TV for all to see. So be careful what you decide to publicize, as this is the gist of the game.

"We become what we behold. We shape our tools, and then our tools shape us."

Characters to Photograph

There are several characters in the game. Most of the characters at the beginning are comprised of "normal peeps" with square and round heads. You'll find a few stragglers in the group, like a couple in love, a man with a hat, an angry man, and a cricket.

Fancy Man With The Hat

One of the first characters to enter the "normal peeps" is the man with the hat. It's hard not to take a photo of him since all other photos of normal peeps are less than satisfying regarding what happens when their photos are on display. When you take a photo of the man with the hat, and all the other characters see that photo, every normal peep now wants to wear a hat.

Normal Peeps With A Hat

When you photograph a normal peep with a hat, you see the chain reaction in full effect. Suddenly, no one wants to wear a hat anymore. It's become too popular.

Couple In Love

When you photograph the couple in love, and they are on public display, they will soon be shamed. And you will likely not see many couples in love roam the streets much anymore. After all, "Who tunes in to watch people get along?"

Angry Person

This is where it gets interesting. When you photograph the angry person, if you don't have to catch them yelling at anyone, you will be urged to "catch 'em while they're doing something." The only thing they do is yell, so that is something you're looking for. Take a photo of them yelling, and the media frenzy begins, aka crazed square attacks.

Anger and Fear Multiply Faster Than Love In This Game

Once you shoot anger in the photos, it's hard to go back to normalcy. The normal peeps will become increasingly afraid of each other, snub each other and then the squares and circles start turning against each other. When the normal peeps turn red, they start to hate each other. When this happens, and you photograph it, violence and hatred begin spiraling toward a violent climax.


Crickets are just crickets. Nothing happens when you photograph them.
