The Novelist launches on Steam today at a discounted price

The Novelist, Kent Hudson's indie game about a father juggling his familial responsibilities while trying to finish the greatest novel of his career, has launched on Steam today. You can grab it for $15 up until December 17, at which point it'll revert to its full $20 price.

In The Novelist, you play a ghost inhabiting the summer home of the Kaplan family. You must watch them, learn about them and make decisions ultimately affecting their relationships with one another. Every choice has a cost and "there are no easy answers," the game's description reads.

The Novelist, which is compatible with both PC and Mac, supports Steam Play – so if you pick it up for one platform, you own it on both.
