Beyond the high stakes moral and ethical dilemmas your Headliner will face. Players will also have to make more personal decisions interacting with other key characters. Learn about your coworker’s health struggles. Also encourage your brother aspiring to be a comedian. And advise a single father how to run his store and provide for his daughter.
Because even though you control the news, at the end of the day, you’re still just a person. With your own circle of friends and part of the community you are influencing.
“Having travelled the world studying various regional conflicts, I wanted to make a game that explores the difficulties of using the media to bring people together in a society that revels in turmoil,” said Unbound Creations founder and director Jakub Kasztalski. “We live in a world of conflicting realities shaped by the media, and it’s not an easy web to untangle. Headliner: NoviNews explores not only the power of the media, but the challenges that come with wielding such power.”
