Hardcore Gamer: Over the past few years, a new discussion has begun brewing in the game community. For some, it seems that there are now games coming out that they are unwilling to even consider as “games.” It sounds odd but there are some who decry anything without an inherently fun play value. Titles that focus primarily on story, sad events, or politics have been using the video game medium in increasing amounts and some are not ready for this change. Thankfully, there is a large enough audience for more distinctive ideas to rise to popularity. It is on that note that a new game by the name of The Novelist arrived on Steam.
