this came out yesterday and i picked it up on a whim. the title is a bit of a misnomer since it's really a visual novel and the bartending is hilariously easy.
aside from the "action" being not really there (so far; i haven't played all that much yet), it's pretty much exactly what it says on the tin, with the added interest that you get a bunch of different stories from the various patrons. it looks like it's going to tie some of them together in various ways.
was wondering if anyone else had picked this up yet.
the binary text on day two of the augmented eye reads "THE RETRIBUTION IS CO-"

I'm enjoying it, it's incredibly comfy. I want to create a page for it once I finish the game, I'm on like Day 5. Some people may be annoyed that the game has more than a few 4chan references, but most of them don't feel obnoxious (as most of them are from reading the all-female 4chan that apparently exists in the future).
Considering that the devs of this game are from Venezuela and what's been happening there, I'm surprised this game got finished at all.
thankfully, the 4chan references are passing over my head since i'm so unfamiliar with it.
i'm somewhat surprised that the game is fairly mature with all the topics people bring up, but i'm not against it; after all, cyberpunk is a genre that may use flashy robots and kickass cybernetics, but at its core it's still a genre that's about the human experience.
all in all, for not being, and i quote "Papers Please - Cyberpunk Waifu Bartending Edition" (-sedmikrasky), it's quite enjoyable. not what i expected, but fun nonetheless!
While I am greatly enjoying the story, I will admit some of the references are rather forced. My main complaint is how almost every character design is a direct shout-out to something with almost no subtly. At least they all have original personalities.
Also, as someone who browses 4chan regularly (yes, I do hate myself), I can say that a majority of the danger/u/ threads feel almost copy and pasted from /v/ threads. It's actually pretty funny, especially because the people on /v/ aren't too happy about it.
I enjoyed it a lot. The fact that I missed the last target was incredibly frustrating (I was, like, less than a hundred bucks short!), but it was because I went on a shopping bender so I have no one to blame but myself.
I liked the story and most of the characters, but I'm ultimately not thrilled about the bartending. It felt samey, so much so that I don't really have the patient to tries for another ending.
I've been watching a let's play on youtube of this and it looks really good. I'd have already bought it, but $15 is a touch steep for me and it's too new for it to be on the Summer Sale. It is definitely on my list. Also, thanks to whoever is doing the Works page, I was planning on starting it myself before you said anything.
uninstall and i both had interest in it and i got one started myself in google docs, but haven't had as much time to play the game as i would like, due to my schedule.
help would most definitely be appreciated on my end of things.
I just finished it, and I have no qualms about combing it over again for the sake of troping. Someone else would have to detect all the 4chan references, though, since I know nothing about that stuff.
Found it in my Steam queue. It's on my wishlist now. Soundtrack seems fun.
I remember playing the demo way back when and I was all "man this is neat and pretty comfy"
it still is
So is there a TV tropes page for this game?
Yes, there is: VA11HALLA
son of a bitch, someone got to it before i did.
oh well, there's plenty to do on that page.
normally im chill as fuck about spoilers, like if i know a game is gonna take a while to beat i wont care if i see shit on its page here
but im strangely reluctant to look at anything for this one
its so nice
FUCK YOU VIRGILIO YOU RUINED MY PERFECT ORDER STREAK YOU PRETENTIOUS PRICK

Know what I love about the characters?
They're fantastically real, but all of them still have a touch of cyberpunk fantasy to them that keeps them entertaining even when they're talking about mundane things.
I wish this didnt come out right when the summer sale started, because everyone is talking about everything else.
i'm appreciating the same as well, especially with sei, given that she isn't a dick like the rest of the white knights and the game does go that distance to remind people that there are good individuals within a crappy group.
oh my god the title screen changes when you beat the game
im crying again
Game's coming to PS4 and Nintendo Switch!
That's good to hear. I hope the creator of the game is doing fine since his country isn't in a good state.
Well this is a pleasant surprise. VA-11 HALL-A is getting a standalone sequel in the form of a new game, titled N 1 RV Ann-A!
i'll be keeping an eye out for that one, for sure.
no use making a new thread when it comes out though
Might as well rename this thread. Seems like "Cyberpunk Bartender Action" is going to be the name of the series going forward.
