What surprised me most when comparing Necrobarista’s development from the year prior, is their updated look for main character Maddy. Last year she was a very austere looking hipster who looked like she’d hex you just for fun. However this time her appearance is softer and could even be described as looking more like a quiet, shy anime girl with glasses. Being an anime fan, I’m definitely digging the new look and can’t wait to see what else the crew at Route 59 come up with. If their Ned Kelly character is anything to go off, I’m sure in for a treat.
Despite the demo being shorter than its 2017 predecessor, due to the more direct nature of the gameplay, I enjoyed the 15 minute play through. It’s managed to keep its eerie presence while improving upon the game’s overall aesthetic.
Route 59 are planning to release Necrobarista in the first half of 2019 on PC, Mac and the Nintendo Switch. For more information regarding both Route 59 Games and Necrobarista follow their official website and make sure to sign up to their mailing list.
