New indie game PC game on Steam, Affogato, blends coffee shop management and card battling RPG, with unique reversed tower defense gameplay. The debut title from indie developer Befun Studio, Affogato will release in 2023, with a demo on Steam available on 29 July 2022.
Here’s what players can expect from Affogato:
Brand New Reversed Tower Defense System with Cards
Reversed tower defense combat awaits once players step into the mind of a wicked customer. It’s a system that combines various card-game mechanics: choose the best cards for each stage, evaluate their cost, the route to take, and how to best use the skill and item cards in real time.
Climb the Career Ladder of Professional Coffee Baristas
Making a good cuppa is the foundation of being a barista. To be a truly great barista, however, you need to weigh up a customer’s words and judge which brew is perfect for them. Bring a smile with every cup you make! Affogato features realistic coffee-making simulation in which you’ll need to familiarize yourself with the workings of various equipment to make your brew. Different flavors and blends will have knock-on effects on the storyline dialogue.
Schedule Your Daily Life as a Sorceress
Manage your time wisely. Will you focus on your cafe’s profit? Or on your friendships with each customer? Or maybe you’re more interested in creating the strongest deck you can? Or perhaps all of the above! Every action costs time in Affogato. Once the clock hits 12 PM, the next day will roll around, so you’ll need to plan each day with care.
Build Unique Friendships by Helping Customers
Get to know customers of all varieties, hear their stories, step into their minds and solve what’s troubling them. You can even pursue closer relationships with those you feel attracted to! There are 6 NPCs with whom you can interact, each one with a whopping 10,000 words of unique storylines.
