A simple introduction to the gameplay of Cafe Crush, as well as a few basic tips to get yourself prepared for your week of work at Kitty Cafe.
Welcome to Cafe Crush! An interactive visual novel, packed with mini-games, quizzes and three cute girls to win the affection of.
Work a week at Kitty Cafe, serving customers, learning new coffees, helping in the kitchen – and get to know Lily, Emilia and Josie, the three girls who run the place.
This is a quick guide to the game play of Cafe Crush, there are no spoliers or cheats here – just a simple runthrough of the mechanics of the game, in case you’re not sure what to expect.
Interacting with the Characters
Throughout the week, you’ll be working with and chatting to three girls: Lily the bubbly waitress, Josie the aloof and straight-laced barista and Emilia, the clumsy and shy baker.
You have to try and make the right choices when they ask you questions, in order to win the heart of the girl you like the most. Remember – you will be able to take note of how a girl has reacted to your choices by looking out for the notification on the top-left corner of the screen. She’ll either like it, love it, not like it or hate it. Get too many ‘hates’ and your Crush Point score will plummet which will make it much harder for you to score a date at the end of the week.
Keep an eye on your relationship status with each girl using the notebook which will get updated at the end of every day – just listen out for the scribbling pencil sound.
Listening to the girls and paying attention to certain details is the key to success – try and consider what each girl might prefer to hear. Being too lazy, rude or lacklustre when you’re working won’t impress them so be careful! You only have a limited amount of time!
Cafe Crush is a reasonably unique visual novel in the sense that there are mini games, puzzles and quizzes to take part in, as you work in the cafe.
Some of these are timed – so act quickly to succeed.
Being successful with the puzzles and quizzes in Cafe Crush will help gain favour with the girls. Just be sure to concentrate the most on impressing the girl you would most like to date.
