OverviewOverview

Coffee Talk is an interactive story about a barista working in a coffee shop in Seattle. You listen to customer's concerns about life and love, in a retro pixilated world backed with lo-fi chilled hip-hop music.

This version of Seattle is populated by fantasy characters, Elves, orcs, mermaids, and others unfold a plot over the course of two weeks. Each day you meet specific characters and learn about their lives. You can also check out your customer's profile on social media via your character's smartphone.

Along with the narrative, there are mini-games to brew various drinks using the ingredients in the coffee shop. How well you make the drinks can have an effect on the game's plot. There are lots of endings for each of the customers, who's stories range from the mundane to the personal. In these interactions, there are sensitive subjects broached such as racism, segregation, love and intolerance.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 12 because it features use of offensive language and dialogue of a sexual nature. Offensive language is often used and includes the words ‘*!@?*’, ‘*!@?*’ and ‘*!@?*’. There are scenes where the dialogue becomes laden with sexual innuendo, including references to BDSM, porn and using condoms. Certain characters can be seen smoking a cigarette.

Skill Rating

11+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content. You need to be able to process requests for coffee and work out which drinks people need. Younger teenagers can enjoy this, but the focus is on the fantasy narrative and characters (with adult themes) which requires a little more maturity to fully engage with.

AccessibilityAccessibility

Our Coffee Talk Accessibility Report documents 29 accessibility features:
This game involves a lot of continuous dialog reading, there are options to speed up the text and to have it auto-advance, which allows you to watch and read along until an interactive segment occurs. With no voice acting and long stretches of written dialog, the game can have a high cognitive load for attention and memory, however there is a text log available so you can go back and reread anything you want to or that you may have missed.
