What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This is the first big game I'm releasing and I have developed it by myself, that is why community feedback is so important to me, I want to build a game that you will enjoy and love, and the best way to achieve that is to hear you loud and clear, by publishing Coffee Shop Tycoon as early access I have more freedom to tweak and craft the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I have a set of objectives that I want to achieve before considering it a full release, my top priority is to create enough content for you. From the beginning I always envisioned the game with many different coffee shops and styles, from furniture to customers, allowing you to customize your store however you prefer.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full versions will have a wider variety of styles and coffee shops. Game mechanics will be more polished and balanced and overall you will have more things to discover.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of the game features two coffee shops where you can hire employees, brew coffee, and customize your store. It includes almost every feature planned for the game. During early access I will keep adding more coffee shops and items.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game will have a higher price after Early Access since you will be getting more content. However by supporting the game during Early Access you get to pay less and play if before anyone else.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I will be actively interacting with the community and opening discussions to suggest changes and new features.”

June Update

Hello, I wanted to give you an update on the next updates. I’ve been working on implementing the new mechanics for the “CEO update” not every mechanic is complete yet but I’m releasing a set of the new mechanics on the next update, this includes the following changes:

Employee Salary/Happiness
I improved the employee system to provide a more realistic experience, in the next update employees will have a happiness meter, this will be affected by their compensation and training, giving you the option to adjust their salary. Based on their level, employees will request a higher salary, if their expectations are met they will be happy, if not they will gradually become angry until quitting if you don’t improve their salary. Employees are also able to gain a performance boost based on their salary. Training is now also a way to increase your employee’s happiness.

I’ve heard several times comments about how the game gets repetitive after a while, that is why I’m introducing employee specializations. When you employee reaches certain level he will be able to develop a specialization, currently he can become a “Top Barista” or a “Supply Manager”.

Top Barista -- This employee will be able to automatically brew coffee based on their orders.

Supply Manager -- This employee can restock beans and food and drop old beans/food based on their orders.

With these two new specializations, you can automate the process of running your shop, giving you more room to think about more impactful decisions for your business.

You can expect this update to roll out within one week.
The “CEO update” is still under development as it is a big update for the game and there are systems that need to be released at the same time in order to make sense. This update will feature a new shop, an office space, new items, missions, and mechanics like custom drink creation, loans, and advanced marketing.

This is all for now, keep playing and enjoy your coffee.
