Necrobarista is ultimately a tale about life, limitations, and letting go. That might sound a little obvious for a tale about a cafe that hosts lost souls for the night, but the way Necrobarista presents this tale is nothing short of stunning. Don’t misunderstand me, Necrobarista substitutes any real interaction for 3D animation and dynamic camera angles.
A distinct, cel-shaded and anime-inspired style isn't the only thing remarkable about Necrobarista. From its main story to the entertaining text adventures that paint between the lines of its more stylishly presented narrative, Necrobarista is an engaging visual novel from start to finish. Some minor complaints in how it executes unlocking additional text adventures does little to hold back the death-concerned coffee shop adventure.
Necrobarista is what a good cup of coffee should be: warm, a little nutty and exactly what you crave. It leaves a lasting impression. Its characters are lovable and relatable; its story covers a deeply complicated topic with humour and charm; and the world is so well-crafted and intriguing that it could easily tell a thousand more stories.
