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.

Digital distribution platform itch.io is hosting A Good Bundle, a new indie game bundle that includes 151 games. As a response to the recent US presidential nomination, itch.io is splitting 100% of the proceeds earned from sales of A Good Bundle 50-50 between the American Civil Liberties Union, and Planned Parenthood. In the bundle’s words: “A bunch of creators are sharing their works to combat some of the ugliness in our world.”

Three different purchase tiers are available. The cheapest starts at US$2, at which you’ll receive a number of smaller, experimental, game jam-style titles. The next tier, at US$8, includes games such as Metamorphabet, Earthtongue, and Death Ray Manta.


Finally, the highest tier at US$20 will net you all of the above, in addition to larger games such as Gone Home, Proteus, Sokobond, Orion Trail, and The Novelist.

The bundle is DRM-free, and includes future updates with each game. The offer expires in just over four days, so snap it up quick!
