We have worked tirelessly to create this Glib Activity Management Escapism: or G.A.M.E. for short. Quickly! Before your short finite existence on this small wet rock hurtling around the sun ends you can find new meaning for yourself by playing this G.A.M.E. Or at least have some fun for a while and chase away the specter of your own mortality with about five hours of "polished" simulation "fun"!

Live the dream!

Create your own coffee shop and grow it to a franchise! Will your brand sell overpriced fancy coffee in a luxurious shop or will you provide organic free-range donuts surrounded by comfy second-hand furniture? It's all up to you! Customize and build your brand and take it all the way to the big leagues!

Experiment and unlock!

Create and combine ingredients to find over 200 drink and food recipes that even the customers didn't know they wanted. From something as simple as an espresso to taste bud abominations like the Bagelcino! It's your imagination versus your patrons' stomachs in a caffeine-fueled endurance match.

Manage like a boss!

Hire staff and train them to barista mastery. Create a motley crew of surfers, baristas, hipsters, and giant autonomous mechs to make your franchise dream come true!


Follow Ruby through a story of murder, betrayal, redemption, and well, coffee. Thrust into the spotlight you have been given the chance of a lifetime - prove yourself as an exceptional business mogul and win the inheritance of the Coffeebottom Estate. That is if you can survive the competition. *Cue Dramatic Music*

Put your skills to the test!

Crazy events will require you to be ready to change up your gameplay on the fly. Did a tour bus full of seniors just park outside? Or did you decide to host local bands for a jam session? New customers are flooding in and the lines are long and customers are getting impatient and are out about to leave! Identify what the customers want and deliver it. Give your employees new orders, set out more chairs and tables, put more on your menu, and get those sweet sweet tips! That master's degree isn't going to pay for itself!

Move on and create new and different restaurants!

If you can build and manage your coffee shop well enough you can move on to bigger challenges in more lucrative locations that may require strategic planning on your part. Will you run a coffee shop on a university campus the same way you would in a busy shopping center? It's up to you to brew your own destiny, but six unique bosses may stand between you and coffee riches!

Who has time for paragraphs? Not you!

Hello! Having bought this on Humble Store – any chance of getting the update there as well? Thanks for consideration!

Which update, the Linux one?  Unfortunately, Steam's particularities don't like our Linux build.  You're basically looking here only for Linux.  If you shoot me an email, I can send you an itch key :) 


(1 edit)

Ah right, sorry: MacOS it was; but I guess Windows wasn´t updated either. Was talking about the downloadable, DRM-free version on Humble Store.

Another option would be to supply an itch.io key w/ purchases on DRM-free portals (don´t know if that´s possible on Humble though). That´s what some contributors on DRM-free bundles do. Nevermind: Just read your comment!

Bought the linux version before the update, installed it with itch and cannot play it anymore that way. Now I have to figure out how to install it on my own anew. *sigh*

Sorry about that.  We will have a stable linux update out soon! (Before Xmas).  

That would be a nice Xmas present for me. Then I shall wait with the installation.

That 1.1 Patch should be out and ready on all platforms but Linux - I'll push that before end of week!

Why won't it let the progress to the next level in stage, chapter, part, etc. 4. (The mall place) I have done all of the objectives but it won't let me advance. Pls halp D:

Oop!  Might be a bug.  We're working on version 1.1 for August 1 as we speak :)
Sorry about that.

In the meantime, you can use code IDDQD at the main menu to skip to whatever level you like! 

Appreciate the support!


Any time <3


I literally made an account to leave a review for this game. Super excited to play it!! :D

I really like the concept of the game, but 5 dollars is too much for me. I don't have enough at the moment. Is it possible for there to be an opening sale? Thank you!
