Unbound Creations has revealed a revised release date for their news editor sim Headliner: NoviNews on Nintendo Switch.
You are the Headliner, operating as the chief editor of the country’s largest news publication. In your role, you must decide which stories to run, meet your quotas, keep your audience engaged, and make enough money to keep food in the dog bowl.
It’s controversy that will drive clicks, and, with the world in conflict, it up to you to cultivate the country’s culture through shaping public opinion.
While your days in-game will be spent sat behind your desk, each night, while walking home, you will have the chance to observe how the stories you ran have influenced the public.
“I’ve been a big fan of the Nintendo Switch since its inception, and felt like there was untapped potential for it to house serious political games,” explains Unbound Creations founder and director Jakub Kasztalski.
“I’ve always been interested in how media shapes people’s perceptions, which in turn shapes reality. What stories we deem newsworthy, and how we report on those stories, fundamentally changes our entire society. Headliner: NoviNews explores the trials and tribulations of trying to remain unbiased in an inherently biased world.”
Headliner: NoviNews will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on September 5th priced at £11.99 ($13.99).
