This was so sweet! Take your time with the rest of the game, I'm sure it will be amazing. (^~ ^)
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Brissa Cruz is a shy college student who’s majorly nervous about her upcoming art exhibition. She’s also a werewolf living in the town of Innisburg, where paranormal beings are just your average citizens. To help her socialize more, her best friend gets her a part-time job at Crescent Coffee, a local cafe that caters to nocturnal clientele like vampires, demons, and witches. But will sparks fly between her and one of Crescent’s regulars? And will this new gig prepare her for the crowds at the art show, or will she crumble under the pressure?
Crescent Coffee is an otome visual novel about love, anxiety, and caffeine. It has 3 romance options of varying genders, and in the full version, will have 8 possible endings. The player’s choices will determine whether Brissa’s fairy tale ends with a happily ever after.
The demo was developed as an entry for NaNoRenO 2019, and the full version will be released soon!
Crescent Coffee is Opal Starlight's first collaborative effort! Thank you to my wonderful partner for helping me make this game a reality! <3

21, Werewolf. A college student who works part-time at Crescent Coffee. Her old friend, Jaemin, got her the job to bring her out of her shell – she’s been painfully shy for her entire life. As a Visual Arts major, she finds it easier to express her feelings through her paintings than her words. Go-to order: small green tea with honey.
21, Vampire. A longtime Crescent Coffee barista who has known Brissa since high school. He dropped out of college and doesn’t know where his life is headed. Though he can be very sweet to his friends, he's normally quite grouchy and talks smack about annoying customers. Go-to order: extra-large black coffee with a blood shot.
23, Witch. A longtime Crescent regular who works as a chemist. They have a bouncy, optimistic attitude and put entirely too much sugar in their coffee. They love to experiment with magic in their spare time, often with disastrous results, and are always looking for new guinea pigs – er, friends! Go-to order: medium mochaccino – and pass the sugar, please!
24, Demon. A new Crescent customer who works remotely. She’s cold and notorious for being a difficult customer – her orders are complex, and heaven forbid you misspell her unusual name on the cup. She always lingers for a long time to write something on her laptop… Go-to order: large half-caf no-whip iced vanilla latte with almond milk, an extra caramel flavour shot, and a sprinkle of cinnamon on top…got it?

Um, this was ADORABLE?????
I loved Brissa, I loved Jaemin, Cyprienne, Nicky. I literally loved all the characters we met.
I played through Cyprienne's route first, and really loved to see the themes that route dealt with (as someone with a non-art day job with an art nighttime hobby, I very much identified with Cyprienne, haha.)
I also really liked how Bri being trans was organically brought up in the narrative, as well as Nicky's pronouns. And the town of Innisburg was so interesting! I wanted to learn more about their town! :D
This was SUCH a sweet game, I kept finding myself cheering for Bri, I wanted her to get her happy ending and be happy!!! I'm SO SO looking forward to the full release. IM... HYPED...!!!!
Also Brissa was my favorite character, I drew a picture of her :'D
HEIDEN.......IT IS ALWAYS A BLESSING TO RECEIVE YOUR FANART AND YOU DREW BRI SO BEAUTIFULLY???? I AM SCREECHING INTERNALLY ILY!!!!
I am so SO happy you enjoyed yourself and that you liked the main character so much!! :’) I’m v happy you felt that the trans rep was organic as well - that is something I strived for! We’ll try to have the full version out as soon as we can and give our sweet girl Brissa the ending she deserves (if you’re not like, a jerk lol)
Also I’m v happy a lot of the early players are going for Cyprienne cause she is my personal fav LOL. (Jaemin is Daniel’s - fun fact!)
Ahh, oh my gosh thank you so much, your art is super pretty and I'm really glad you enjoyed the game! I think fleshing out the setting, adding more places to go, and adding more exposition on what life is like in a world of humans and monsters is something we're definitely interested in doing, and will definitely pursue for the full version!
