VA-11 HALL-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action Coming To PS4 And Switch

Cyberpunk Bartender Action, the booze em'up about waifus, technology, and post-dystopia life with more than 200,000 copies sold on Steam from Ysbryd Games and Sukeban Games, will launch on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in Q1 2019.

Nevertheless, there's a cyberpunk soundtrack attached to the game that you can cycle through on the in-game jukebox while you put together drinks and listen to the stories from the denizens of Glitch City, and you can alter the way some conversations unfold as you soak in the neon-hued setting of the VA-11 HALL-A dive.

VA-11 HALL-A originally came to life as a prototype for the Cyberpunk Game Jam. In fact, the prototype is still available on developer Sukeban Games' website. Eventually, Sukeban Games developed the concept into a full game.

Cyberpunk Bartender Action was first released on 2016 for Steam and PS Vita for $14.99 Dollars. While Sukeban Games reports that they have sold over 200,000 copies of the game on PC and PlayStation Vita, the game (which now boasts a flawless score on Steam) will certainly broaden its audience with the help of these additional platforms.

The off kilter bartending simulator, which mixes in elements of point-and-click games with actual drink mixing and some visual novel elements, already managed to capture a niche audience on PC. "Every story you hear is important, and drinks served to even the supporting characters can have tangible impacts on progression through the game".

With 24 drinks to concoct, there is no one correct drink to serve in any given situation, as characters are impacted by whatever cocktail they are poured.

Watch the announcement trailer below to see what the cyberpunk indie game is all about.
