Route 59 Games‘ Necrobarista is one of the indie games that Eurogamer’s Johnny Chiodini says you need to have on your wishlist. He describes his experience at PAX West 2018 with the cinematic cel-shaded visual novel that takes place in a supernatural coffee house in magical modern-day Melbourne:
As you have conversations in game, you’re able to select keywords and keep them with you. You can only hold so many words in mind however, so you quickly have to learn to be selective…you quickly start curating a mood, rather, than, say, a puzzle solution. And it’s a mood that really starts to inform how you interact with the rest of the game.
