13 Coolest Games You’ve Never Heard Of
Created by Kallie Plagge on
There’s a cafe in Melbourne where the dead can come back for just one night--but while you’re there, you don’t know who’s alive or dead. Necrobarista is an anime-style visual novel with a bit of a morbid twist, taking inspiration from series like Death Parade and Time of Eve. It’s full of dramatic pauses, sassy dialogue, and a lot of mystery, plus a charming cel-shaded art style.
Like many visual novels, Necrobarista has a touch of romance, but its main focus is on its characters and the kinds of interactions they would have in an environment with so much ambiguity. How do you talk to someone when you don’t know if they’re really dead? Necrobarista aims to tell those branching stories in replayable, anime episode-length scenes. -- Kallie Plagge
Necrobarista is slated for release in early 2018.
