Yes. The infamous Cafe is the WIP this week. With 108444 views on its development log and 84 pages of posts, this game is the definition of suspense. The development thread was created in August of 2008 and has aroused a ton of interest since. In October of 2010, a release date was announced and statements including, “I jizzed all over this thread when I saw the release date” were made throughout the forum.
And as the date got closer and closer people even began to discuss reaching the speed of light to make time pass faster to play this marvelous game.
What is the release date you ask? February 30th 2011. Yep, that’s right. That day doesn’t exist.
We can only hope this means it will be released March 2nd. We can only hope this whole thing isn’t a ploy.
For those of you who haven’t fallen in love with cafe yet, and haven’t been tortured by suspense, let me introduce you. You to will wait in pain.
Over the past 3 years, not one playable build or gameplay video has been posted. People around the world cry. However, scattered across the 83 pages are beautiful mock-ups(see below) and hints of game play. The game is a 2d platformer with amazing pixel art and humorous dialogue. In the game there are 4 main “areas”, each based on a season of the year. Aside from that, not much is known about the gameplay. However, there is one thing we know for sure: “… it involves lots of coffee, mysterious things and an orange umbrella.” But like I said; tons of mock-ups have been posted along with the game sound track! Although concreate evidence of game development progress is void, we all wait and anticipate. I dream one day this will be finished. Keep your fingers crossed for March 2nd.
