This seems like a bunch of dialogue for dialogue's sake.

If you think this look cool, check out VA-11 HALL-A instead.

This is crazy similar to VA-11 Hall-A, which was a great game. Although I think the drink mixing part was a bit more involved if I remember.

This doesn't look that interesting but I'll probably pick it up anyway just to support a game made in Indonesia

Yea everything I've seen about this game so far has shown me that this is just a worse version of the game VA-11 Hall-A which is a fantastic game that's extremely well written, with great characters and amazing music that everyone should play.

Agree with everyone here saying to just play VA-11 Hall-A instead, it's very similar to this but infinitely better in terms of characters, writing, and music. Even the drink-making mechanic is more interesting in that game.

I mean, c'mon. Look at this cool dog.

Another visual novel-style game that also has drink making is The Red Strings Club, which I adored. That one is more cyberpunk, and has a lot of interesting dialogue choices. You are also like a magic bartender (to be reductive) in that game, where the way you make the drinks can affect customer's moods, and change the dialogue in very meaningful ways.

Either of those games seem like a better version of this, check 'em out if you haven't!

Being open only after midnight isn't as crazy and stupid as you guys would suspect. It reminds me a lot of the Netflix series: Midnight Diner. It's about a Japanese restaurant that opens after midnight and about the people that come through. Wait, this game is almost exactly like this. Wonder if the creators were inspired by that.

Also: the demo is also on Xbox. Probably even PlayStation if I had to guess.

I was really thinking we'd get a Warcraft reformed quick look ... yet nothing on the main page I swear someone mentioned a quick look when it came out. I'm in the hospital and on morphine drip for 24 hours so maybe I imagined it

One thing I've often found "off" about a lot of modern dialog-heavy games like this one is that the creator(s) sometimes seem to only be able to write one kind of dialog style and/or perspective and just apply that to every character; no matter what walk of life they are supposed to be coming from and what that might mean in terms of a differing manner of speaking or perspective on events and life.

It's jarring – and in my opinion, no fun – for an entire game's dialog to all read the same way and obviously be coming essentially from the same person.

I havent gotten a chance to watch the full QL yet, so apologies if this gets brought up, but is this basically "Fantasy Va-11 Hall-A" ?

I guess this might be a decent holdover for some peeps until N1RV Ann-A comes out? I'm not digging the world here from what I'm seeing in this vidya though.

I'd like a tea with a tea and a tea please. This is how we humans talk.

I'm surprised that they all played this game beforehand. There doesn't seem to be that much going on.
