Waifu bartending: VA-11 HALL-A seems like the best dive this side of Catherine

0

Also, racist talking corgis

I love Catherine. Part of the reason is its block puzzles. Part of the reason is its small scale, with most playable segments taking place in the homey bar Stray Sheep. VA-11 HALL-A--or Valhalla--is that same sort of bar, packed with regulars just trying to get through their nightmarish cyberpunk existence. Games don't always need to be bombastic save-the-world-'em-ups.

Over 20 clients will come into Valhalla, where you tend bar, serving an odd cast drinks as they serve up their life stories. And the bartending is as important to the stories as the stories are to bartending as you learn what clients like and, maybe, why that talking corgi is such a racist.

You can download and play the prototype here for free or at your own price if you can spare it. You can also pre-order the full game (and get a Steam key) for $5, which is less than the full game will be at launch. With that, you'll get the Prologue as well, which you can play until Sukeban gets the full game finished. Eight bucks gets you the Prologue, full game on release, and the soundtrack.

Plus,

Sold.
