Cast in the role of a “Headliner”, you operate as the chief editor of the country’s largest news publication. With great editorial power comes great editorial responsibility as you must decide what stories to run, meet your quotas, and keep your audience engaged. 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! Each playthrough will last roughly three hours, but with every decision you make drastically changing the outcome, you’ll want to sit back in the editor’s chair time and time again!
