Venezuelan indie studio, Sukeban Games, recently finished development of VA-11 HALL-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action, a unique bartending simulator/visual novel.
You work as a bartender at VA-11 Hall-A, or more commonly referred to as ‘Valhalla’, in a ‘cyberpunk dystopia’ known as Glitch City. Individuality is non-existent in Glitch City because all humans are injected with ‘nanomachines designed to oppress them’. Only the most fearless people dare hope to survive and enjoy life.
As a bartender, you will encounter colorfully designed characters. You must fulfill their orders in specific ways to unlock additional dialogue about them and Glitch City. If you’re having trouble, you may consider ‘accidently’ increasing the alcohol content, if you catch my drift… Ultimately, the story develops based upon the drinks you prepare.
VA-11 Hall-A has an artistic style very reminiscent of old Japanese adventure games. It utilizes cool colors to create calm and relaxed visuals. The art style is definitely a selling-point, especially for anyone that might feel nostalgic because of it.
The official trailer for VA-11 Hall-A is linked below to provide a look at parts of the game:
VA-11 Hall-A may be purchased for $14.99 on the Humble Store to either distribute more money to Sukeban Games or charities. A Steam key will be provided after purchase, or the game can be downloaded DRM-free. Now go and fulfill your life-long goal of being a bartender!
