Running a new business is tough, but necromancy is even harder! Traverse the difficulties of both in Route 59 Games‘ new visual novel, Necrobarista, set to release on PC at the end of this month.
Necrobarista is a new take on the much-beloved visual novel genre. Breaking out of the standard text boxes, each chapter boasts first-personal exploration sequences and stellar cinematic sequences. The narrative is rich with “collectable keywords giving further insight into the characters and themes of the world”. This unique perspective is only enhanced by its colorful, cel-shaded visual design and masterful soundtrack.
Kevin Chen, lead designer, commented on the upcoming release, “Necrobarista is an extra-caffeinated blend of our love for games, anime, and our hometown. The resulting brew is something uniquely Australian and we’re thrilled to finally serve up our magical world and immerse everyone in coffee puns when the game launches on Steam for PC next week.”
Follow apprentice necromancer and business owner Maddie on this magical, coffee-fueled adventure:
Discover a tale of mystery, magic, and, depending on who asks, the best/worst coffee around. Hidden in an unassuming alleyway lies The Terminal, a café that serves as a waypoint between the lands of the living and the dead, where any one of the patrons could be a spirit from beyond. With strict rules defining how long ghosts can spend in the corporeal realm before being forced to pass on, running this café is more complicated than your typical Melbourne coffeehouse.
