Coffee Crisis is the java packed alien invasion metal heads have been waiting for!

Posted on May 4, 2018

Are you a coffee drinking, metal loving, cat video watching gamer who constantly worries about alien invasion? Have you ever felt like there just isn’t a game out there that caters to your needs…? Well look no further because the cleaver people over at Mega Cat Studios felt the exact same way! Coffee Crisis is a neo-rogue brawler that puts you in the shoes of the only baristas on Earth with enough heavy metal in their veins to fend off an alien assault.

The Smurglian race has come to Earth and they’re not leaving until they steal our four most prized commodities: metal music, the best coffee, cat videos, and all our precious WiFi. Challenge them through unique and innovative levels inspired by real-life areas in Pittsburgh, PA, USA. Join Black Forge Coffeehouse baristas Nick and Ashley, two galaxy gladiators called to arms to stop this madness and remove the Smurglian threat from Earth.

The Smurglians may have already taken our cat videos… but they can never take our freedo… I mean Wifi!
If you don’t help our heroes fend off the alien-assimilated elderly, bros, cowgirls, and country western singers, then who knows what could happen!

Coffee Crisis allows you to play solo or join up with a friend for a hardcore jam session! Fight you way across eight unique locations ranging from your own Coffee House HQ to the far reaches of outer space, mosh stomping some major alien booty along the way.

  • Classic side-scrolling beat ‘em up action that feels better than you remember
  • 2 playable baristas, each with their own attributes and alien-crushing special moves
  • Destroy and throw a variety of environmental objects and even enemies
  • Collect coffee-themed power-ups and weapons for an espresso shot of action
  • Gorgeous hand drawn and hand-animated sprites and backgrounds true to Sega Genesis specifications
  • Unlockable mini-games to boost high scores
  • Visit Pittsburgh landmarks like the Duquesne Incline, PNC Park, and Grandview Boulevard
  • A soundtrack featuring original music by Pittsburgh metal band Greywalker
  • Already averted the crisis? Come back for more in Death Metal Mode, where the difficulty is cranked to 11!
  • Encounter random modifiers that could make you an invincible killing machine or summon a swarm of raging possessed cowgirls! You’ll never experience the same cup of cosmic coffee carnage twice!
  • Twitch/Mixer integration lets you enjoy the game while keeping both hands on your coffee cup!

If you’re looking to pick up a copy of Coffee Crisis then you can do so by heading over to Steam and purchasing the game yourself which is due for release later today. However for those looking for something a little more special those geniuses at Mega Cat have you covered once again.
