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.”

Update v0.5.2 is Live

Hello everyone, the latest update is out! This update is not as content heavy as the previous update but it addresses one issue that was very evident every time new content was added to the game. I'm talking about the Store, in particular buying items for your shop.

Store UI

The UI for the store was ok when the game was starting as there weren't many options to look at, now that there are over 60 items to choose from, navigating that menu has become a painful experience. The new update brings a redesigned store, where items are organized by categories. It also remembers the active category when closed so next time you open it again you can keep buying items on the same category without having to navigate to get there.

I also updated the look of the other sections of the store to match the new design which goes in line with the more recent interfaces of the game.


No update is complete without some bug fixing, so here are some of the bugs fixed on this update:
  • One of the pumpkins not rendering with the correct material.
  • Umbrella ignored selected style when buying.
  • Minor bug fixes.

Next Update
Next update is going to be a content heavy update, featuring a new store location, rival AI stores, new drink ingredients, and new objects for your store. I'm looking forward to sharing with you the exciting new things coming to the game. Until then, enjoy your coffee!

February 8

NEW UPDATE out of beta! Includes Store Expansions, new Items, new item placing system, and improved AI.


After a long testing period and bug fixing, the new update is finally ready, I will do a recap of the features for this update and talk a little more about what is coming in the next update.

Store Expansions

Now you are able to unlock new areas on your shops! You can expand your shop by reaching the required reputation level and paying an expansion fee. The Second and Third shop have this option available, so you can start placing tables and decorations on the sidewalk or over a nice deck next to the lake. New stores will also feature expansions and will be created with this feature in mind to offer interesting options and multiple expansions.

New Items

This effort would not be complete without having new cool things to buy and customize your shop, so the new update adds 20 new objects, including tables, firepits, plants, and even some big shared tables so people can chill on your store while working on their homework. All thanks to the amazing work of Gaby which has been helping me creating new models for the game.

New customer behaviors

Large tables can now be shared between customers that don't belong to the same group. These tables are commonly used for working and it adds a nice option to your shop as you will start seeing more customers drinking coffee at your shop. Drinking time for customers has also been increased so they will stay longer.

The new placement system allows you to get customers stuck, but they are now smart enough to stop and let you know that the path is blocked so you can let them move around.

Better placement and more options

There are some common coffee shop layouts that were not possible due to the old grid system, for example, placing tables against the wall.

The new grid system gives you the flexibility to achieve this and more. Placing tables was also a little restrictive as you had a big area around your table that needed to stay clear of any other object, now tables only use the occupied slots and you can even place tables together without any restriction. Individual tables that are next to another will not become a merged larger table, but customers will still use them as each portion was an individual table.

Every small table now supports 4 chair slots, one on each side. Larger shared tables can support up to 8 customers at the same time.

Coming next

Next update will be delivered way faster as I'm just planning on updating the Store UI. The number of items has increased quite a lot since I made that screen, and sometimes it is hard to find what you are looking for. The update will add groups and persistent state so you can browse between different categories like "Chairs", "Tables", "Decorations", "Seasonal" and go back to the same search after placing the item.

I will also keep working on the AI for rival stores and I will start planning the new content update which will include a new store location and new items.

Thanks for all the support and your great feedback that has helped evolve the game into its current state. I know there are many more exciting things to come for Coffee Shop Tycoon and I will keep working to bring you these experiences. Don't forget to post any bugs you encounter and remember, enjoy your coffee.
