Time to Mix Drinks and Change Lives

VA-11 HALL-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action is a booze em' up about waifus, technology, and post-dystopia life.

DRM-Free and Steam Key

All users that purchase this title on Playism will receive both a DRM-free copy and a Steam key!

In this world, corporations reign supreme, all human life is infected with nanomachines designed to oppress them, and the terrifying White Knights ensure that everyone obeys the laws.

But, this is not about those people.

You are a bartender at VA-11 HALL-A, affectionately nicknamed "Valhalla." Although it is just a small bar downtown, it attracts the most fascinating people this side of dystopia. Keep your clients lubricated and you will be made privy to the most interesting stories.

  • Features

  • Learn about daily life in the cyberpunk dystopia of Glitch City.
  • A branching storyline where your decisions do not depend on traditional choices, but through the drinks you prepare.
  • Visuals inspired by old Japanese adventure games for the PC-98, with a modern touch for an otherworldly experience.
  • Get to know your clients, their tastes, and prepare the drink that will change their lives.
  • Reviews

Although there aren't dialogue options, VA-11 HALL-A creates a storytelling experience that's grippingly personal. If, like many game theorists argue, story should always act as a supporter to mechanics, then VA-11 HALL-A is the exception that makes the rule.

Kill Screen

Never falls into the trap of simply alternating “gameplay” and “story” as so many narrative-based games do; rather, everything you do feels relevant to what is unfolding in front of you.

Moe Gamer

It's through these brief, unguarded conversations that the cyberpunk bartending sim slowly unfolds its story; not of a dystopian world, but of the people living in it.

PC Gamer

We are a game developer based in Venezuela. Born as a blog discussing japanese pop culture, we took a huge interest in game development and decided it was the path we wanted to follow. Our first finished title was a small visual novel made for our blog’s first anniversary, soon after we decided to take on a much bigger project which proved to be way too ambitious for our skills at the time. Not long after cancelling it, we just focused on making smaller games for contests and that’s how we started VA-11 HALL-A, a much simple undertaking that actually managed to be more popular than our first full fledged project and decided to go on with it. The rest is history. Our name means “delinquent girl” or “delinquent boss girl”, which is pretty cool, we love the concept and feel connected to its rebellious nature.
