Route 50 announced that their adventure visual novel Necrobarista will launch on PC-via Steam on August 8 for $14.99, with a PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch release to follow in 2020.
Necrobarista is set in a magic cafe in Melbourne, Australia that just so happens to be frequented by living and dead customers. The cafe is staffed by a necromancer, that has opened the gates for the dead to come hang out with the living for one final day before leaving forever.
Necrobarista is a visual novel that takes the genre to the world of 3D and has player experience the story through the cinematic narrative with branching scenarios and depth. Players will also be able to explore the cafe and investigate its environments as they speak with customers and learn about their unfinished business.
The camera of the game will shift between several characters’ perspectives as players get to understand this world and the story it’s trying to tell. The idea is to have a free-roaming experience that tells a compelling story that adventure fans will feel comfortable with.
The developer also released a new gameplay trailer showing characters and situations quickly to give players a preview of what’s to come.
