Route 59 Games announced that their cel-shaded visual novel Necrobarista will be coming to PC via Steam on July 22.
For those following, this announcement comes long-awaited after the game’s most recent delay from its previously announced Q3 release date, which was a delay from its previously announced August 8 release date. However, that’s all in the past now as ‘GAME’S COMING OUT JULY 22 OR WE ALL WALK INTO THE OCEAN’, according to the lead writer in their official discord server. You can watch the trailer below.
Necrobarista is a visual novel that takes the genre to the world of 3D and has players experience a story through a cinematic narrative with branching scenarios and depth. Players will also be able to explore and investigate the main cafe and its surrounding 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.
