Visual novel Necrobarista has finally got a release date for PC, and we can expect to see Route 59's title on August 8, with Nintendo Switch and PS4 versions releasing sometime next year.
The game takes place in a magical cafe in Melbourne, Australia, called The Terminal. The difference here is that both the living and the dead visit this cafe, and a necromancer works there to cater to the patrons.
Unlike a lot of visual novels this has 3D visuals and a striking style you can see in the new trailer and screenshots below, requiring you to explore and investigate as you talk with the various characters. The dynamic camera moves and pans, and the studio has been heavily influenced by film and anime for this game.
"Necrobarista is the distillation of our deep passion for anime, video games, and storytelling," said Kevin Chen, lead designer at Route 59 Games. "We set out to pay homage to our influences while also creating something completely new and inventive. While it's taken a while to perfect the recipe, we look forward to sharing it when Necrobarista launches on PC this August."
