Australian game developer, Route 59, has released a new gameplay trailer for its 3D anime style visual novel, Necrobarista.
Necrobarista is set in a cafe in Melbourne that serves coffee to both the living and dead. The new gameplay trailer depicts the player going through several menus, walking through rooms, and choosing dialogue choices. The game’s official Steam page provides more information:
“Inspired equally by film and anime, Necrobarista is a unique take on the visual novel. Follow a dynamic and diverse cast of characters as they navigate Melbourne’s hipster coffee culture, the questionable ethics of necromancy, and the process of letting go.”
The Steam page also lists an enticing set of features:
Stylized, fully 3D cinematic presentation that draws from anime aesthetics.
Soundtrack by Kevin Penkin, BAFTA-winning composer for Florence, Made in Abyss, and Norn9.
Delve into the world of the Terminal and fantasy Melbourne through free-roaming first-person scenes.
Featuring goon-sack robots, alchemical coffee, and Australian folk hero Ned Kelly.
Multi-lingual support: English, Chinese, and Japanese.
Necrobarista was present at PAX Australia late last year. The game is set to release on August 8, 2019 on Steam and other platforms, including PlayStation 4 and Switch, in 2020.
