Necrobarista Now Open for Business on Steam

MELBOURNE, VIC – 23 July 2020 – Necrobarista, the cinematic cel-shaded visual novel from Route 59 Games, is fresh off the roast and now serving PC patrons on Steam.

Step into The Terminal, a magical café at the junction between the world of the living and the great beyond. Along with pouring flat whites and long blacks, this coffeehouse provides a special service for the dead, allowing them to live for one final night before crossing over.

Hidden in the laneways of Melbourne, Australia, The Terminal is populated by a flavorful blend of characters, ranging from its necromantic owner Maddy Xiāo to legendary bushranger Ned Kelly, each with their own stories to tell. Bewitch brews with dark and delicious spells while managing day to day café operations and unraveling the mysteries that lurk within its walls.

Explore this eerie and entertaining environment in first-person adventure segments, collecting keywords and piecing together clues. Then enjoy dynamically-shot cinematic narrative sequences that offer a fresh new perspective on the medium of visual novels in full 3D. 

Featuring an original soundtrack from award-winning composer Kevin Penkin (Made in Abyss, Norn9, Tower of God, Florence), Necrobarista wears its influences on its sleeve, lovingly paying tribute to anime, film, and the team’s hometown with a touching tale of love, death, and coffee.

“After years of pouring ourselves into Necrobarista, we can finally say it’s finally ready,” said Kevin Chen, lead designer, Route 59 Games. “This a special brew of what we love and who we are and we’re incredibly proud of what we’ve created. Thanks to everyone who has joined us on this journey and we can’t wait to see your reactions now that Necrobarista is out on PC.”

Necrobarista is now available on Steam for $19.99 / €16.79 / £15.49 / $24.95 AUD and via the Apple Arcade subscription service. It features English, French (European and Canadian), Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Dutch, Russian, Turkish, Arabic, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Japanese, and Korean language support. Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 versions are currently in development and planned for release in 2021.
