Indie Game ‘Necrobarista: Final Pour’ – A Story About Death and Coffee, Out Now for Switch

In a back-alley cafe, the dead are granted one last night to mingle with the living.

The concept of Necrobarista: Final Pour is truly intriguing as the game centers around the concept of being a barista at a cafe where the dearly departed come together for “one last night to mingle with the living“.

While Necrobarista comes across as a clever story for a game, I can’t help but feeling like it would be a truly incredible anime series. And that is kind of the point, as dev team Route 59 has done so intentionally creating a concept that is heavily inspired by manga and anime.

Inspired equally by film and anime, Necrobarista is a unique take on the visual novel medium. Follow a dynamic and diverse cast of characters as they navigate Melbourne’s hipstery coffee culture, the questionable ethics of necromancy, and the process of letting go.

Stylized, fully 3D cinematic presentation that draws from anime aesthetics.
Soundtrack by Kevin Penkin, BAFTA-nominated composer for Florence, Made in Abyss, and Norn9. Delve into the world of the Terminal and fantasy Melbourne through free-roaming first-person scenes. Featuring goon-sack robots, alchemical coffee, and Australian folk hero Ned Kelly.

I prefer Crocs for their style over their comfort.
