How to Get All Holo-Brooch Designs in Beyond a Steel Sky

The complete list of all Holo-Brooch designs and how to obtain each and every one of ’em, in chronological order or otherwise

Intro

In late February 2022 Update #7 was released and with it came the spruced-up Holo-Brooch designs. If you’re

a darn eejit wee wanker with nothing better to doan unapologetic completionist like me, you’ve surely felt the urge to collect them all. Oi, but that’s why you’re here, innit? Relax, mate: I’ve got you covered 😎

This guide features the complete list of all 26 Holo-Brooch designs and how to obtain them, in chronological order (the recommended one) or the order they’re displayed on any MINOS terminal, if you’re looking for a specific one you’ve missed.

I highly recommend you follow the chronological order since some designs become unobtainable after certain events in the game. For your convenience, I marked those with the ⚠️ sign below.

Most of the designs are relatively easy to obtain if you explore the areas thoroughly but a handful of them are quite obscure, especially #17 (MINOS Scanner), #20 (Goat) and #22 (Security Services).

There be

dragonsspoilers below, of course, so peruse at your own peril, tho I did my best to keep them to the minimum.

Also, It should be noted that the designs can only be obtained while you’re in possession of the

unalteredAspiration Brooch

so between the moment you first get it at the Museum and the moment you download one of the stolen poems onto it at the Piazza in order to get an invite to the Aspiration Gala.If you spot any errors/mistakes/goofs etc. or if something seems unclear in my wording (I’m not a native speaker of English, mind you, so it may need some polish… get it?), please leave a comment: constructive criticism is always welcome.

Should you find this guide useful in any way, rate, share and favourite it to spread the good word and boost its visibility 🙂 Give it a 👍!

If you still have any opposable digits after your memorable run-in with Jimmy, that is 🙌

Chronologically

Museum of New History

Main wing

  • Social Climber (1): obtained automatically along with the Aspiration Brooch
  • Mr Spankles (2) or Joey (3): one of them is obtained by messing with Reverent Man near Joey’s arm at the Museum of New History after making a deal with Teenager (for the Mr Spankles design) or on your own volition, just for kicks and giggles (AND for the Joey design); if you choose the latter option, don’t forget to pick up the Brooch from the floor afterwards; the other design is easily obtainable after your visit to the Museum by customizing your Brooch with the Brooch Slot at the stand near Joey’s statue at the Piazza and choosing the missing blueprint
  • Bartleby Bilby (5): examine the MINOS Exhibit
  • Dave Dingo (6): examine the Spankles Exhibit
