Get robots drunk in VA-11 HALL-A's cyberpunk bar

Japan News - Wed, 08/20/2014 - 18:00

OK, I'll admit it right now: The main reason I'm posting about VA-11 HALL-A, a indie bartending game, is because of its website, located at a domain called (and I'm not kidding) Waifubartending.com. These people know what's up.

It also helps that the game itself looks like a cute, retro-futuristic visual novel with a fun "Cyberpunk Bartending Action" hook, and some hot synth music to go with the trailer. The prologue is available now for just the right side of "impulse buy" prices.
