Making our list of 2016’s must-own indie games and selling more than 300,000 copies on Steam so far, get ready to serve up more cocktails when VA-11 HALL-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action comes to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on 2 May 2019.
The booze em’up about waifus, technology, and post-dystopia life will come in Limited Run physical editions for both consoles and Nintendo Switch Collector’s Editions 😮 are also on the way (more details later this year).
Bartender Jill listens to everyone’s tales while mixing drinks for strangers and regulars alike. Engage in lively conversations with a humanoid robot popstar, the editor-in-chief of a prominent magazine, a boy-crazy hacker and others to unveil the society of Glitch City as seen through the eyes of its citizens. Jill pours libations, but her patrons pour out their souls.
VA-11 HALL-A puts a shaken-not-stirred spin on point-and-click games with mixology: characters react differently depending on the drinks served and how much alcohol they’ve had. Learn more about Glitch City through the lens of a resident doing her best to maintain a somewhat ordinary life in an extraordinary metropolis.
Enhance the atmosphere of this futuristic experience by curating different electronic playlists on the jukebox to listen throughout the night. Infectious synthpop, ambient electronic music and a dark pixelated anime art style frame the gloomy but laid back experience.
