About

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


"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


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.

I tried a lot but I just can't force myself anymore. There's promise but they could do so much more with the drinks mixing with the mechanics they built and the story is a pretty banal brogressive cyberpunk story. The setting is cute and all but they don't do enough and the story is too long and drawn out to make it worth it.
one of the best visual novel games out there, the music is a 10/10, writing is an 11/10 but the ending was very sudden, highly recommend

Wow, the Story, who thinks a Game about a Barkellress sounds boring, was vastly wrong about this Game. Nothing expected, totally picked up, emotionally impressed and Soundtrack bought. There's nothing you could say bad about the Game and the only People who don't like the Game are probably people who are reading Aulids or can't speak English.

The gameplay itself is pretty easy, you can take your time by mixing the drinks and discarding them doesnt penalize you whatsoever. The actual reason to buy this game are the stories resolving around it wich is the main motivator of the game (even through the game lets you customize your room from the cash you earned but don´t expect it to be totally spectacular) wich turns it more into a visual novel th en a "real" bartender game. If you like unique characters, Sci-Fi and philosophical dilemmas now and then this game is totally worth a buy (i don´t need to add that you will read ALOT in this game), if you are looking for a challenge it will be better to buy a other game.

OK this Game is sometimes a completely different visual the Characters are profound. You play a Bardame who is trying to get money in the City glitch city. As you talk to the Customers, you mix together a wide variety of Drinks and listen to a wide variety of Life Stories. Sounds quite boring at first but once you're in the routine of listening and mixing in it, listening is incredibly Fun and it's really interesting what you get to hear. The game is mainly VERY LANG AND it is at no time boring The game has immediately reached the Top 10 Games for me! Playing is worth PS buys it on humble bundle;-)

Be Sure to watch, the Game is very worthwhile. One of the best Visual Novels I have played and generally one of the Games that will have a fat Place in my Heart and my Memory for a long Time. Visual Novel is perhaps a lot said because the Game experiments felt something around with the said genre, I'm also not going to delve too deeply into the Matter because to find out how this game Builds game principle and Atmosphere is actually the big one Sticking point Of the Product. In any case, a clear Buy recommendation from me, the Developers have put Visibly great Effort and a lot of Love into the product and I would be very happy if I can have more such enjoyable Experiences in the Future. Great Music, great Characters and above all a great Atmosphere. This game has accompanied me many Evenings lying and let me relax with one or the other Drink in my Hand while zooming. Reviews read set and just looseat.
The best visual novel on Steam.
