Melsoft and Wargaming team up to launch a coffee empire

Posted on May 31, 2016

Seriously, the amount of puns in this press release is impressive. If I’m not careful, I’m gonna get roasted.

So Melsoft and Wargaming have teamed up to launch My Cafe; Recipes and Stories. This is pretty much one of those addictive mobile games that has no body or flavour to it, and that you could really do without. Playing it has left me with a rather bitter aftertaste, and I’m pretty addicted to it already.

My Café: Recipes & Stories entered soft launch in 2015 at quite an early stage,” said Andrey Yarantsau, Business Development Director at Melsoft. “We have still been enhancing the game off player feedback for around a year, and we’re truly grateful to all of them for the ideas they brought to the table. Together we’ve created a fun and engaging mobile game that can keep you entertained.”

Which is does. At least in the same way other mobile games hook you in. I don’t feel like they have done anything new here; it’s just another addictive, slow paced game that requires real life money to fast track, something I never do. I’m pretty stubborn about this, and I’ve never forked out real cash to speed up my games.

They really are trying to make this game stand out with the addition of gossip as a game mechanic. Sure, it’s great that they tried but really… “Gripping stories”? I think that this may be aimed at The Bold and The Beautiful fan base


But back to the puns:

“The latest installment in Melsoft’s portfolio brings a nice twist to the popular business simulation genre, adding a shot of storytelling to immerse players in the exciting lives of café clientèle. The game isn’t only about customizing your store with tons of equipment and furniture to get it just right. In My Café: Recipes & Stories, the cappuccinos may be hot but the drama is set to boil over.

As you level up, you’ll discover the interesting and sometimes secretive lives of dozens of diverse characters who frequent your café. Combined with a rich blend of customization options and quirky customers are competitive social features to keep track of your friends’ progress.

Don’t de-lait, download today.”

Pretty sure the puns got me into this game. And I’m not leaving any time soon. I need to see how far I can go in it. This is the current look of my cafe:


It’s no Starbucks, but I’ll get there. Besides, I gotta have something to play during bathroom breaks.
