Many gamers out there have never tried a visual novel due to the simple fact that they don’t seem particularly “interactive.” But there are many titles in the genre which include more standard modes of gameplay. One of these titles is The Next World.
In this game, players experience a story where space colonists crash land on an alien planet and must find a means to survive. Alongside interacting with crew members, there are more standard strategy aspects such as managing resources and building new structures.
Those interested in this The Oregon Trail-styled visual novel may be interested to know that The Next World will arrive on Steam this February for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
