Unbound Creations announced today that Headliner: NoviNews will be coming to the Nintendo Switch sometime this summer. In Headliner: NoviNews, players will be cast in the role of an editor who gets to decide what news pieces to run, thereby influencing the general public opinion. At the end of each day, the customized avatar created by the player will walk home and see in the background how his/her decisions affected the city and its inhabitants.
“Headliner: NoviNews tackles one of today’s most pertinent issues: the mass distribution of information,” said Unbound Creations founder and director Jakub Kasztalski. “We’re constantly being fed conflicting realities and ‘alternative facts’ that are making it increasingly hard for us to make sense of the world around us. I wanted to make a game that explores the difficulties in uniting a nation in a world where skepticism and bias have left us increasingly distrustful of everything we hear.”
Headliner: NoviNews won "Best Overall Game" of Intel Buzz Seattle, 2018. It is currently available on Steam.
