Remember Coffee Talk, the game that dared to ask, “What if Shadowrun was set in the modern day and all the orcs and elves really wanted was a decent late-night latte?” We already knew there was a sequel on the way in which, and the extra slice of Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly proven at this 12 months’s Wholesome Direct doesn’t include any revolutionary additions to our data, although it does verify we’ll be capable to serve extra drinks to chill individuals.

What we did see had been some new drinks we’ll be capable to brew, just like the pink spice, butterfly pea, and blue pea latte, which gamers will then be capable to adorn with foam artwork masterpieces due to Coffee Talk’s fluid simulation system. (Here’s a scorching videogame tip: in case your flat white comes with a coronary heart on prime, this doesn’t really imply the waitstaff are literally in love with you.) 

Hibiscus & Butterfly can even add new characters to the cast, and showcase new appears to be like for returning characters. (Freya’s obtained herself a trendy hoodie, as an example.) There are new options promised as properly, with a distinct UI structure while you’re brewing a cup of tea or espresso and a approach of checking on characters’ social updates through the ‘Tomodachill’ app.

Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly will probably be out there on Steam and GOG in 2023.
