On Sale!

2014년 5월 6일

Hey, everyone, I wanted to quickly let you know the game is part of the Humble Spring Sale here.

I didn't know that the Humble Spring Sale was coming when I put the game on a Weeklong Deal here last month, and unfortunately there is a two-month waiting period for sales here on Steam. This means that I'm prevented from reflecting the same 50% discount here on Steam. :-/

That said, Humble sales do come with a Steam key, so you can buy it there and then activate your game on Steam via your Humble account.

Sorry for the confusion, but I hope you enjoy the deal!

평가

“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.”

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.

This game made me confront the fact that I was slowly destroying my relationship with my partner through neglect. That it was able to speak to me on such a human level is probably the greatest accolade I could give it.

This game is a brilliant change of pace from a lot of other games. I'm not sure if I've ever seen a game that fits into 'real life' (define that however you wish) so well as this one. A lot of the scenarios in here are perfect practice for what people would really want out of life, and I'm learning things about myself playing this. It's really interesting.

Certainly may not be for everybody, but nothing worth anything ever is.

I just finished this, and all I can say is it is probably one of the best games I have ever played. People interested in intricate gameplay might be dissapointed with the simple controls and limited actions, but the story has tons of different outcomes, and i'm already halfway through my second playthrough! Oh god, the story is amazing. It is so real and so raw. The art style is also really beautiful, and the side-story of the ghost that you play as is really cool. I love this game and would recommend it to anyone.
