Coffee Talk is a cute and chill game where you make and serve coffee to mythological creatures.
Coffee Talk is a talking/conversation simulator game in which you bend your ear to the troubles of all manner of beings, human and not. Brew up a fine cup of joe, and serve it to someone or something that could also really use someone to talk to.
You take on the role of a barista in an alternate universe version of Seattle, Washington. The perfect setting for any game that revolves around a relaxing coffee shop experience, while aiding the woeful hearts of the inhabitants.
You will meet all sorts of fantastical creatures to talk to throughout the game, including mermaids, elves, orcs and many of the other usual casts of mythical beasts. To the best of your abilities, make delicious drink for your patrons, by hand, while helping them unburden themselves of the daily grind through stimulating conversation.
It’s already a new year and we’re off to a good start with some wholesome games releasing in January 2020. I’m still keeping on eye on games that haven’t been officially announced with a specific date but will be coming out sometime during the winter such as Garden Paws (Switch version) and Rune Factory 4 Special. For now, take a look at the games releasing soon and let us know what you’re most excited to play!
Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3!? – January 2020
The first Cook, Serve, Delicious! game came to PC and mobile devices in 2013. Selling more than a million copies, it was more than popular enough to warrant a sequel. Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2 was released for PC, Switch, PS4 and Xbox One, as well as Mac and Linux. Now a third entry into the series will be releasing on Steam Early Access in January 2020.
Mythic Ocean – January 9th, 2020
This wonderful adventure under the sea about building relationships and making choices that will change the fate of all of creation was created by indie developer Paralune. Mythic Ocean has a free demo now and will be releasing on Steam on January 9th, 2020.
Coffee Talk is a casual talking simulation game developed by Toge Productions. This game caught my eye in early development due to your customers being fantasy characters! Now, not only do we know that Coffee Talk will be releasing January 29th, 2020, but that it will also release simultaneously on PC, Switch, PS4, and Xbox One!
Let’s not forget that the Nintendo Switch is region-free. Meaning, you can pop in a Japanese disc into your Switch, and even select the language you want as mentioned above! Sounds like the physical Switch version will be accessible to all!
Chorus Worldwide, the publisher of Coffee Talk teased fans with a tweet today. According to their post it appears that a Nintendo Switch Demo of this exciting and relaxing story game could be on the way!
For anyone who doesn’t know, Coffee Talk is a narrative game currently in development and production by Toge Productions. You may know Toge for games like She and the Light Bearer or Magicat. Although seemingly dark, I find Coffee Talk to be a warm and relaxing story of everyday problems through the lens of magic.
The tweet states that the publisher is currently prepping a demo but it isn’t 100% confirmed yet. Chorus Worldwide is asking fans to stay tuned for more information on this.

About Coffee Talk
Set in an alternate version of Seattle, Washington, you will be a barista serving fantastical patrons. As rain fills the night outside, you’ll get a glimpse into the lives of orcs, elves, mermaids, and more. You will participate in dialogue with customers while also trying to perfect whatever drink they order.
Unlike other narrative-based games, the storylines and decisions will branch not from your dialogue options but from “how you treat and serve the customers of your café.”
A dark and earthy color scheme meets with a ‘90s anime-inspired art style that is both beautiful and calming. On top of that, the music is a jazzy assortment of lo-fi. Toge calls the game “an experience to make you think, feel, and help rest your body and soul.”
Fantasy Characters: Although the problems are familiar, the characters are anything but. Meet mermaids, orcs, elves, and other yet-to-be-disclosed fantasy races.
Unique Outcomes: The way you treat characters while serving them will change the decisions they make.
Chill Aesthetics: Along with the look of the game, you will have a selection of chillhop music to help set the scene.
Here’s the teaser trailer
Coffee Talk is slated for a PC and Mac release “sometime after midnight” this year. A playable demo is available on Steam, itch.io, or directly from Toge Productions’ website. You can follow updates for the game on Twitter.
Gamescom is the world’s largest event for tech and video games held in Cologne, Germany. Unlike E3, there typically aren’t that many press announcements with release dates but rather you’re given the opportunity to play game demos and possibly get the chance to speak with the developers. This year, Gamescom opens its doors to trade visitors on Tuesday, August 20, 2019, and to members of the public on Wednesday, August 21, 2019. Events and the show floor will be scheduled until Saturday, August 24th, 2019.

With this new addition of a pre-show, we here at myPotatoGames are looking forward to some amazing new reveals!
The Indie Village and Indie Arena Booth
Another new addition to Gamescom 2019 is that developers of indie games will now have considerably more space in the entertainment area. Indie Village (in hall 10.2) will be showcasing more than 140 independent developers. The central element of Indie Village is the Indie Arena Booth, which has been taking applications from indie developers for a few years now and supplying them with booths. More than 100 games can be seen in the Indie Arena Booth alone. In addition, you can look forward to a stage program coordinated especially for indie fans, the MIX.
As you know, we here at myPotatoGames are huge fans of wholesome indie games so we’ve written a list below, including their links to our previous articles for more information. You can also watch the trailer by Indie Arena Booth for the confirmed indie games for Gamescom 2019.
Other games like Cat Quest II by The Gentlebros Games are teasing that the announcement for their release date is coming soon and that they are “saving it for a special event.” We can only hope that they are talking about Gamescom 2019 as that is less than 2 weeks away!
