Ghostly cafe visual novel Necrobarista needs a little longer to brew

Necrobarista title screen

Necrobarista, a visual novel about a Melbourne cafe where the dead can share one last cup of coffee with the living before moving on, has been on our radar for a while now, but we’ll have to wait just a little longer for its release. The game was scheduled to launch August 8, but today, developer Route 59 Games announced that it was being delayed.

Necrobarista is now planned for sometime in the third quarter, which means it should be out by the end of September. Route 59 Games will use that time to put the finishing touches on it and add support for 14 languages.

A recent gameplay trailer gave us a look at the game’s beautiful visual style, plus a taste of its excellent soundtrack and a hint of how exploring Necrobarista’s version of Melbourne and chatting with otherworldly cafe patrons will play out.

They can be lured outside with promises of taco trucks and film festivals, and enjoy trawling through used book stores for works on the occult. Bryan has been gaming since the SNES era and is a sucker for good pixel art.
