Coffee Crisis is set to release on February 15, 2018.
If you’ve never heard about it before, it’s a game developed by Mega Cat Studios. It was originally released as a Sega Genesis cart, but now it’s available for multiple platforms- Windows, Mac, and Linux, as well as PS4, Xbox One some time later in the future.
The game first appeared from a successful Kickstarter campaign about a year ago in 2017. It rolled out as a Genesis cart with a box and instruction manual. Mega Cat Studios basically wanted to create another Genesis game without all the laws and regulations of creating one. It’s completely fan-made with no input from Sega.
The game was a success and they continued to work on new updates for the game via the circuit boards and new cartridges because the game was in a physical format and had no connection to the internet. Some updates included art, combos, and new hitboxes. It’s a real blast to the past.
Now, Coffee Crisis is the next game. It’s an action sidescroller beat ’em up with gorgeous 2D graphics. If you’ve played legendary classics like Streets of Rage and Final Fight, you’ll know exactly what the game is like. Players play as one of two characters who need to fight off an alien race in Penn State. It’s a 2-player game with 10 stages that are hand-drawn with complete couch co-op. The game also has some awesome music made by a band called Greywalker and has 12 tracks.
If you’re into indie games, this is one you don’t want to give up.
It’s already being planned for Xbox One as they’ve already begun the process and PS4 will be announced some time later. Windows, Mac, and Linux will be released on the 15th of February.
There will be also some exclusive PC features as well.
The keys for the PC version were delivered to backers in March, and since then we’ve been adapting their feedback into the game. Because of their suggestions, the PC release will have a ton of polished content and exclusive features! We’ve also started the Xbox certification process, so a cup of crisis is coming to consoles too!

I specialize in indie games as I think they don’t get the attention they deserve. I’m just your typical consumer who has some opinions to share. I’ve been reviewing games since I was 12. I started out reviewing them with friends on old forums that now no longer exist. Then I went to online VoDs, which I’ve lost interest in.
And now I’m here to deliver my thoughts in written format!
