Coffee shop philosophy with a side of comedy banter, plated attractively.

Necrobarista may not make the player a part of its story, but this visual novel's narrative still hits pretty hard.

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.
