- Pixel Cafe — Baltoro Games’ Biggest Project Yet — will be released on November 30, 2023.
- The game makes use of underutilized tropes to deliver a highly impactful story.
- We interviewed the Narrative and Game Designer at Baltoro Games to gain insights about Pixel Cafe.
Baltoro Games is working on Pixel Cafe, its biggest title yet, and it delivers a story that will feel familiar to most Eastern Europeans, especially those knowledgeable about the aftermath of the Soviet Union’s collapse. The game focuses on the coming-of-age story of Pixel, a young town girl trying to navigate a big city. One of the major aspects of Pixel Cafe is how realistic or relatable Pixel’s situations and conversations feel to the player.
If you played the demo, you would understand just how impactful the story can be for some gamers. Not only that, but the game also has enough gameplay on the cooking side to keep the players engaged and sometimes challenged on higher difficulties. To understand the intricacies of Pixel Cafe, eXputer recently sat down with Katarzyna Okońska, the Narrative Designer, and Wojciech Nikorowicz, the Game Designer at Baltoro Games, over an email interview.
Read ahead for the full interview containing their invaluable insights.
While depicting a story inspired by real historical events, Baltoro Games found many similarities between those and the current times. The studio aims to deliver those elements in the personalities of many revealed characters that Pixel interacts with throughout the game and the challenges she faces in some situations. The true extent of her journey will be explored once the game releases on November 30, 2023, and rest assured, it will be complete.
