Ever wanted to design, build and manage a café on your very own home computer? Really? Jesus… that’s what you want to do with your life? OK then… welcome to Hipster Café.
Use your trust fund to buy up some old warehouse building in the run down part of town then market it to the nouveau riche in a cynical attempt to drive up property prices. Can you successfully navigate the shifting waters of pop culture in order to market your eatery to the wealthiest demographic?
-Optimise your food menu to cater to the pallets of the great and the good.
-Customise your space to keep it at the cutting edge of design.
-Fill your café with the latest greatest entertainments and distractions.
-Keep up to date on the latest trends on social media, because as soon as something goes mainstream, the hipsters are looking for the new cool thing.
Developed in the Loading Bar in the hipster centre of Dalston, London by a bunch of hairy people who work as ‘freelancers in media’, Hipster Café is a simulation game based on very real life experiences. In it, you must serve up a menu based on the latest trends, research more obscure coffees and entertain the Hipsters by building up a tower defence like map of ridiculous furniture.
The game is coming to Steam at some point in 2018 and the alpha will be available to play at EGX Rezzed in the Loading Bar booth.
