To 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, and the additional slice of Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly shown in this year’s Wholesome Direct doesn’t contain any revolutionary additions to our knowledge, although it does confirm that we’ll be able to serve more drinks to refresh people.
What we saw were some new drinks that we will be able to prepare, such as the pink spice, the butterfly pea and the blue pea latte, which players will be able to decorate with foam artwork thanks to Coffee Talk’s fluid simulation system. (Here’s a hot video game tip: If your flat white comes with a heart on top, that doesn’t mean the waiters are actually in love with you.)
Hibiscus & Butterfly will also add new characters to the cast and show new looks for returning characters. (Freya has a stylish sweatshirt, for example.) There are promised new features too, with a different UI layout when you’re brewing a cup of tea or coffee, and a way to check character social updates via ‘Tomodachill’. application.
