Video games are often about violence, solving puzzles, beating villains, but the indie game The Novelist takes a very different route. This new released indie project places the player as a literal ghost in the summer home of a young family in the midst of individual emotional issues.
Dan Kaplan is the titular novelist of the game, and it is the player's job as the ghost to observe the family and take not of individual problems and then influence Dan. Another unique aspect of this game is that there are no right or wrong answers. What helps one person will inevitably affect another, and not always positively. There is no way to appease all the characters, making The Novelist a realistic, emotionally heavy game.
