The Novelist getting closer to release

novelist-bannerHey, so remember The Novelist?  The game, in which you play a ghost trying to help guide the lives of a troubled family, is getting closer to a release date.  Kent Hudson, the independent developer behind the game, has provided an update on where development on The Novelist stands.  Read on for the details.

We were introduced to The Novelist back in May, and the game’s unique premise and design immediately caught our attention.  Since then, Kent Hudson has been working hard on the game, and has provided a steady stream of updates on the game’s official website.  His most recent update talked about his plans for releasing The Novelist.  Although he will no longer make his self-imposed deadline of September 22nd, he insists that the game is nearing completion, and should be available to purchase in the relatively near future.  Ken points out that he fully intends to make The Novelist the best game it can possibly be.

 “I don’t want it to be a near miss. I want it to be something special. I want it to be the game I see when I close my eyes at night.”

Can you blame him?  Personally, I can’t wait to play The Novelist, but I’m more than happy to give Kent all the time he needs to finish it.  The game is available for preorder right now on the official site, and upon release, all preorders will receive The Novelist soundtrack for free as a bonus.  If you’ve never seen The Novelist in action, and are curious as to what it’s all about, check out the demo Kent gave to IGN below.

Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
