Toge Productions has announced a follow-up to their well-received 2020 release, Coffee Talk. The new “episode” is titled Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly and is targeting a 2022 release date on PC.
The developers have only shared a brief teaser trailer with a brief look at two new characters so far, seen below.
Like the first Coffee Talk game, the new game is a visual novel set in a coffee shop. In your role as a barista, you will talk with a variety of characters who stop by and mix their drinks. The sequel’s Steam page contains a basic list of game features, listed below, though all of this applies to the first game as well, so it doesn’t give much insight into new features of Episode 2 yet.
In a time where people are isolated from each other, Coffee Talk is a place where we can reconnect over a cup of warm drink.
It’s time to revisit your favorite late-night coffee shop and reconnect with your fantasy friends over a warm drink or two. You are a barista, and your customers aren’t always humans, listen to their stories and influence their hearts with a warm cup of coffee or two.
The game features:
