Headliner: NoviNews the upcoming news editor sim will get Linux and Mac support after the Windows launch. Since Unbound Creations’ plan on releasing on Steam, October 23rd.
“Yes, we are planning on a Linux and Mac support 🙂 It will likely follow after the Windows release on Oct 23rd, a similar model we followed on the first Headliner.
And we are using Unity engine, so hopefully the porting process is pretty straightforward!”
So once again, Unity 3D helps bring about another Linux release. Developer Unbound Creations did not reveal a launch date for native support. Or roughly how long after the debut. So stay tuned.
Cast in the role of a “Headliner”, you operate as the chief editor of the country’s largest news publication. With great editorial power comes great editorial responsibility. Since you must decide what stories to run, meet your quotas. And also keep your audience engaged.
Controversy equals clicks with the world in conflict. So it’s up to you to cultivate the country’s culture through the court of public opinion.
Much of Headliner: NoviNews is takes place behind your desk. But every night ends with your custom made avatar walking home. While observing how the stories you ran influenced the public. Which politicians will they support? Will a riot break out? How will you report on said riot?
So with geopolitical tensions at an all-time high. It’s never an easy decision being the Headliner! Each playthrough will last roughly three hours. While every decision you make drastically changing the outcome. So you’ll want to sit back in the editor’s chair time and time again.
Headliner: NoviNews launch date Trailer (Linux, Mac, Windows)
“Headliner: NoviNews offers a unique spin on the job sim genre. With a timely take on the harsh realities of journalism. Perpetually tasked with predicaments that put your artistic and moral integrity in conflict. Along with the capitalist need for clicks. So you’ll have to navigate the messaging behind massive societal conflicts,” said Unbound Creations founder and director Jakub Kasztalski. “It’s a mad, mad world out there, and Headliner: NoviNews investigates the difficulties in bringing people together. Since this is a society predicated on juicy controversies that drive us increasingly apart.”
Headliner: NoviNews recently won the “Best Overall Game” of Intel Buzz Seattle, 2018. Also a finalist for Best Action & Adventure Game at the 2018 TIGA Awards. And it was part of the Official Selection at PAX West 2018’s Indie Mega Booth and the same year’s Seattle Indies Expo.
Headliner: NoviNews will be available on Steam October 23rd for Windows. While that Linux and Mac launch will follow. Priced at $9.99 USD but no release week discount.
