News editor sim Headliner: NoviNews is out now on Nintendo Switch!

Seattle, Washington – September 5th, 2019 – Unbound Creations’ unapologetically politically charged potboiler and news editor sim Headliner: NoviNews launches today on Nintendo Switch, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions to follow in December through publisher Chorus Worldwide.

Cast in the role of a “Headliner”, you operate as the chief editor of the country’s largest news publication. Acting as the voice of the publication, you must decide what stories to run, meet your quotas, keep your audience engaged, and make enough money to keep food in the dog bowl. Controversy equals clicks, and with the world in conflict, it’s up to you to cultivate the country’s culture through the court of public opinion.

Beyond making executive decisions behind your desk, Headliner: NoviNews also lets you walk the streets as your custom made avatar observes 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? With geopolitical tensions at an all-time high, it’s never an easy decision being the Headliner!

“Now, more than ever, it is important to question the media that we are exposed to. The Nintendo Switch is great platform to house a serious political game exploring the consequences of the stories that are deemed newsworthy in our society,” said Unbound Creations founder and director Jakub Kasztalski. “I’m excited for players to be able to investigate these themes for themselves.”

Headliner: NoviNews is an official nominee for IndieCade 2019, recently won “Games for Good” silver award at Serious Play Conference 2019, the “Best Overall Game” of Intel Buzz Seattle, 2018, was 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 Megabooth and the same year’s Seattle Indies Expo.

News editor sim Headliner: NoviNews is coming to Nintendo Switch this Summer!

Seattle, Washington – August 7th, 2019 – Hot off the press: Unbound Creations’ acclaimed news editor sim Headliner: NoviNews is coming to Nintendo Switch in Summer 2019.

Cast in the role of a “Headliner”, you operate as the chief editor of the country’s largest news publication. Acting as the voice of the publication, you must decide what stories to run, meet your quotas, keep your audience engaged, and make enough money to keep food in the dog bowl. Controversy equals clicks, and with the world in conflict, it’s up to you to cultivate the country’s culture through the court of public opinion.

Much of Headliner: NoviNews is set behind your desk, but every night ends with your custom made avatar walking home, 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? With geopolitical tensions at an all-time high, it’s never an easy decision being the Headliner!

“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 recently won the “Best Overall Game” of Intel Buzz Seattle, 2018, was 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.
