The Yokohama Coffee Shop ☕️

Welcome to Yokohama! The year is 2121. Mankind is dead. Robots still work in certain facilities to maintain the power supply. Between shifts, they visit coffee shops to experience what humans called a 'coffee break'. You are an android barista and your job is to serve your customers quickly.

This is my entry for the Cre8 Jam. I struggled for a few days after the theme was announced, but luckily I was reading Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou at the time, and this really beautiful solar punk manga is about a robot barista in a post-apocalyptic world serving coffee to the few humans (and robots) left in the area. It seemed like a good fit, so I decided to make a Tapper-like game with robots and coffee, and added some flickering neon signs for good measure.

How to play

  1. Wait for a customer to come in and order a drink (or food).
  2. Go to the top end of your bar and get the right drink.
  3. Serve the drink to the customer.

HINT: Press any action button while moving to double your move speed!

In the bottom right corner is a bomb icon that shows the number of lives you have left. You will lose a life if you take too long to serve a customer and they leave. If you lose all your lives, the game is over.

Game modes

Happy hour: Regular mode, with more and more customers coming in and patience wearing thin.

Rush hour: Like regular mode but starting in round 5.

Casual: Regular mode, but with all the patience of the robot world. However, you only get one point for each customer. It's only fair!
