Coffee Talk (Game Review)

Know this, Coffee Talk isn't a barista simulator.

The game follows a barista working in a coffee shop in a fantasy version of Seattle as they listen to the concerns of the coffee shop's various patrons and prepare drinks. The game features an aesthetic inspired by 90s anime, pixel art, and the lo-fi chillhop genre of music.

You play a barista running a coffee shop aptly called “Coffee Talk”. Your little cafĂ© only opens late at night; it's kind of like a bar but without the booze. As you run your business, you will meet many customers of different species, each with a story to tell. The game is fairly straightforward. You start the day reading some headlines in the local paper and figure out how it ties into the stories of your customers. Your customers will vent, share their feelings as well as their day to you or another customer and you just listen.

The game’s art is definitely one of my favorites so far. It’s a high bit pixel art with a super retro feel to it. The colors are vibrant and warm, especially in the coffee shop, emulating a cosy coffee shop feel.
One of the main attractions of the game is definitely the soundtrack. Coffee Talk comes with its own soundtrack. The music is mostly lo-fi, giving that chill, cozy, coffee shop feeling as you play through the game. Coffee Talk is a game about making connections and getting to know people. If you’ve ever walked into your local coffee shop and wondered what that random stranger’s life is like, this would be the perfect game for you.
