Description

The Novelist is a story-driven game about a father (Dan Kaplan) and writer who has problems dealing with caring for his family and writing his current book at the same time. He decides to take his family on a vacation to tackle this problem.

Linda, Dan's wife, wants him to become an artist and work on their marriage. Tommy, their son, has growing problems with sensitivity and loneliness. The player controls a ghostly presence who must read the family members' minds and discover all their desires. Certain actions or decisions will affect the lives of the Kaplans and also the career of Dan.

There are two modes in this game. The storytelling mode and the stealth mode. In the storytelling mode its all about making choices and changing the fate of the Kaplans, whereas the stealth mode does also feature this, but the player must not be seen by any of them, or otherwise the decisions will not have an effect on the ultimate outcome.
