Be a coffee tycoon and private eye in the newest genre: business management noir

The screenshots for Coffee Noir feel like they’re from three different games. One looks like a moment from a visual novel where you speak to a young woman working at a bakery. Another shows a hard-boiled detective in a trench coat at a rainy, darkened train station with a comic book narration box providing some exposition. A few more show the complicated control panel of a coffee manufacturer with dials and knobs labeled “Packaging Facility” and “Roaster” and “Forklifts,” pictures of ledgers, and what looks like an entire book of business negotiation strategies.

It’s all one game, though—a business management sim about running a coffee company and a hard-boiled noir detective tale with both a comic book and visual novel feel. And it’s set in an alt-future London.
