Welcome to VA-11 Hall-A! In this world, corporations reign supreme, all human life is infected with nanomachines designed to oppress them, and the terrifying White Knights ensure that everyone obeys the laws.

Although it is just a small bar in downtown Glitch City, it attracts the most fascinating people this side of dystopia. Keep your clients lubricated and you will be made privy to the most interesting stories. The experience of VA-11 Hall-A offers a branching storyline where your decisions do not depend on traditional choices, but through the drinks you prepare.

Throughout this otherworldly experience, savor the legendary electronic soundtrack by Michael "Garoad" Kelly, while planting your eyes on visuals inspired by old Japanese adventure games for the PC-98 with a modern flourish.

VA-11 HALL-A is a visual novel at heart, but all of the elements surrounding it make for a unique experience on its own. The Nintendo Switch version stands on its own as an excellent way of experiencing this cyberpunk tale, even if it's not completely flawless in terms of controls.

It truly does feel like you’re sat at the barstools with your friends, chugging some brewskis, shooting the shit, and (mostly) having a good time. You might be making out with a toilet come morning, but hey, in life there’s no reward without risk. So if you’ve yet to play VA-11 HALL-A, or if you just want to revisit it, prep your finest glass cleaning rag, because it’s time to mix drinks and change lives.

As far as contemporary cyberpunk games go, you’d be pressed to find a better game than VA-11 HALL-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action. Like a refreshing drink after a hard day’s work, this game hits the spot for those thirsting for another taste of that sweet, sweet mechanical dystopian feeling. And, thanks to its engaging story that manages to straddle both humor and drama without being overbearing on either front, it’s got a little bit of something for everyone. So, whether it’s because you like booze, banter, or a bevy of bubbly (or not-so-bubbly) bros and babes, VA-11 HALL-A is one hole-in-the-wall worth visiting.
