- A Space For The Unbound takes players to late ‘90s rural Indonesia on a beautiful slice-of-life adventure on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5|4, Xbox, and PC via Steam Thursday, January 19, 2023
Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly, Toge Productions’ continuation of 2020’s heart-to-heart talking sim Coffee Talk, brews a fresh pot of stories early next year. Embrace the cozy atmosphere that drew more than a million would-be baristas to the first game.

Create latte-art masterpieces while listening to the personal issues plaguing each individual. Provide warmth through a decorated cup of coffee and influential conversations.
A Space For The Unbound, Mojiken Studio’s gorgeous pixelart adventure, stars two high school sweethearts on a journey of self-discovery. A strange supernatural power threatens their community, so the pair strives to use their own newfound powers to heal those they love. As a looming comet collision approaches, rally together as a town coping with the end of the world and alleviate the communal pressures of the anxieties that follow.
Navigate a melancholic reality laden with unearthly happenings in a story about overcoming anxiety and depression. Dive into the minds of others, interact with their emotions, and help improve their wellbeing in a lovingly crafted narrative told through richly detailed pixel art bringing the Indonesian setting to life.
