“Xbox Game Pass helped introduce new fans to the first Coffee Talk, and we’re excited that Episode 2 will be on the service from day one,” said Chorus Worldwide founder and CEO Shintaro Kanaoya in a press release. “With Coffee Talk still on Game Pass, now is the perfect time for Game Pass subscribers to play the original game in time for the release of Episode 2 on April 20.”
Here is an overview of the game, via Chorus Worldwide:
Open the coffee shop doors—and patrons’ hearts—in a present-day, fantastical Seattle where memorable humans, quirky orcs, business-oriented succubi, and other mythological denizens coexist. Customize each requested drink with a mixture of ingredients like tea, ginger, chocolate, mint and more to make a standout latte they won’t soon forget. Become the barista everyone feels comfortable enough to talk to, and lend them a much-needed ear.
Turn strangers into friends and encounter familiar faces while listening to people vent about their real-life problems. Improve customers’ moods by serving them warm drinks complete with personalized latte-art designed with an in-game fluid simulation. Relax in a soothing environment and cozy up for emotional warmth to the tunes of lo-fi chillhop beats. Explore various narrative arcs, concoct recipes with distinct combinations of ingredients, and help heal the souls of city denizens in dire need of conversation.
