I have recently picked up this game on Steam. It's called "VA-11 HALL-A Cyberpunk Bartender Action" and it's currently 15% off, since it's a moderately new release. I don't usually buy VNs on Steam, but this one was kind of... appealing. Here's the link: VA-11 HALL-A.
If you visited this link, you may have noticed the description of the game put there by the devs: "VA-11 HALL-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action is a booze em' up about waifus, technology, and post-dystopia life.". While it's catchy and simple to understand, it's also exactly what this game has to offer. In the game, you play as a female bartender called Jill, who got her entire bank account cleaned by a ghost (cause, you know, you have to start on an empty account right), recently learned the bar she works at faces a danger of closing down, and the entire place itself smells of dog urine and soap (cause last Friday there was a big clientele consisting entirely of Corgis - yes, Corgis, the dogs). Sounds quite ordinary for a VN, while also ridiculous enough to get you started, right? That's what I thought too.
Well, the game takes place in a cyberpunk kind of world, where Corgis drinking booze or 13-year-old-looking robot prostitutes are a normal sight. In there, your role is limited to sitting behind a counter of a downtown bar and serving what your clients order while also keeping them company to their drink, hearing their stories. Between the days you work at you can worry about yourself and your own problems - your needs (Jill has the things she wants too, and if she doesn't get them, she can become distressed) and everyday world problems (you get a phone, an app resembling The Times, a toned down version of 4chan and god knows what else).
If you wanted to know more, you can pick it up. I still haven't even finished it myself - I just wanted to share that this game is totally worth a look. It's really good, it takes itself seriously while also keeping you entertained with mixing drinks or randomly 'dank' or 'kek' quotes. Seriously, if this game had a counter for how many times I wanted to press F12 to screenshot the best quotes but couldn't because whoever saw it wouldn't have any context, that'd be way over 9000 by now. And I only played it for 3 hours.
If you're still not convinced, Steam reviews speak for themselves. If anyone else has played it... share your opinions below?
That's it from me, thanks for dropping by. I'll see you around now that I'm back.
