The Novelist 1.13

We're very excited to announce The Novelist version 1.13, which is a stability and longevity update that also improves the save game system and adds Steam Cloud support.

Here's the list of changes:

  • The Novelist has been updated to Unity 4.7.2, the final build of the Unity 4.x branch. This brings stability, performance, and compatibility improvements that will extend the life of the game.
  • The game now uses a unified file format for saved games across all platforms, instead of using platform-specific systems like the Windows Registry and macOS .plist files. This makes it much easier to debug issues and move savegame files between computers. Existing saves will be converted to the new format the next time the game is launched; game progress will not be lost.
  • The Novelist now supports Steam Cloud for syncing save games. Note: Steam Cloud requires the new save game format to function, so you must launch the game once to convert your save to the new format before Steam Cloud can sync your save.
  • Fixed a bug where toggling fullscreen would sometimes not keep the current resolution.
  • Characters now save and restore the clothes they're wearing.
  • The Unity resolution picker can now be brought up by holding Alt (Windows) or Option (macOS) when the game is launched. This is helpful if you encounter issues with window placement or resolution.

Thanks so much to everyone who has supported the game over the years!

Recensies

“The Novelist affected me, deeply and painfully ... I frequently cried at the outcomes of the decisions I made for the Kaplan family.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“While it arrives on the heels of other notable non-combat, story-based games, it still manages to feel fresh and emotionally resonant. This is thanks to sincere, realistic writing and an inspired approach to player choice, which has you picking sides and making difficult compromises in the context of family conflicts.”
Polygon

“The Novelist is the most personal and beautiful game I have ever experienced. The creator, Kent Hudson, has quite plainly poured his heart and soul into this game, and the outcome is genuinely something to behold. Never before have I felt so emotionally involved in the characters, their situation and potential future, as in this truly player-driven story.”

Over dit spel

The Novelist asks one central question: can you achieve your dreams without pushing away the people you love? The game focuses on Dan Kaplan, a novelist struggling to write the most important book of his career while trying to be the best husband and father he can be. The Kaplans have come to a remote coastal home for the summer, unaware that they’re sharing the house with a mysterious ghostly presence: you.

Read the family’s thoughts. Explore their memories. Uncover their desires and intervene in their lives. But stay out of sight; you can’t help the Kaplans if they know there’s a ghost in the house. It’s up to you to decide how Dan’s career and family life will evolve, but choose carefully; there are no easy answers, and every choice has a cost.

Dan’s relationships – to his work, his wife, and his son – react and shift in response to your choices. With a different sequence of events in every playthrough, The Novelist gives life to a unique experience each time you play.

The decisions you make will define the Kaplans’ lives, but they may also tell you something about yourself.
