Wot I Think: The Novelist

Gone Home Alone

The Novelist is a narrative-led, sort-of-stealth, sort-of-point'n'click-adventure game by Deus Ex: Invisible War, Thief: Deadly Shadows, and BioShock 2 dev Kent Hudson (with playtesting help from a remarkable number of renowned developers, according to the credits) in which you direct and decide the fate of a tormented family who've gone to stay in a remote house for the Summer, in an attempt to resolve their respective career and relationship difficulties. But they are not alone...

My head says this.

My heart says this.

The Novelist is out now.
