Rock Paper Shotgun’s Dominic Tarason served readers with the news that Necrobarista, the gorgeous cinematic cel-shaded visual novel from Route 59 Games, hits Steam for PC with a double-shot, no water kick of magic, myth, and necromancy on August 8, 2019. In this modern-day tale, players serve up foamy, caffeinated drinks to the living and dead alike:
Clearly, a good brew is not to be rushed, and the trailer below has me entirely enraptured. Necrobarista has you playing as Maddy Xiao, a young necromancer whose teacher was also a coffee expert. She runs The Terminal, a hipster coffee shop. . . . Route 59 describe it as a suspense story, with movie and anime inspirations, so expect drama and peril, on top of people having died on the way to your store.
Necrobarista is out on Steam for PC August 8. Console versions are planned for 2020. For more on Necrobarista’s aromatic delights, check out the official website and follow Route 59 Games on Twitter and Facebook.
