Before you ask, YES, they still make games for the Sega Genesis. Well, small indie studios do. MegaCat Studios, for example. They put out a fun and funky Sega Genesis game called Coffee Crisis that got enough notice as a cartridge game that it was eventually ported to PC and can now be yours on Steam for less than the price of a can of coffee, or a few small coffees if you need a gauge of some sort.
As for what the game is about, go pour yourself a cuppa joe (I’ll wait) and click, then read what’s below the jump.
Save the Metal, Save the World, Save the Coffee!
Coffee Crisis is a neo-rogue brawler that puts you in the shoes of the only baristas on Earth with enough heavy metal in their veins to fend off an alien assault. Play solo or join up with a friend to fight across eight unique locations ranging from your Coffee House HQ to the far reaches of outer space. Go up against an army of wild alien enemies, and the humans they have brainwashed with a variety of weapons, special moves, suplexes, and coffee!
The Smurglian race has come to Earth and they’re not leaving until they steal our three most prized commodities: heavy metal, free Wifi, and our coffee. Crunch through fistfuls of alien meat as you stop their invasion, and enjoy random modifiers to the enemies and action on each playthrough. It’s a totally unique cup of beat ’em up action every time you play!
– Single or Local Co-Op Play
– Controller Support
– Steam Trading Cards and Badges
– Already averted the crisis? Come back for more in Death Metal Mode, where the difficulty is cranked to 11!
– Encounter random modifiers that could make you an invincible killing machine or summon a swarm of raging possessed cowgirls! You’ll never experience the same cup of cosmic coffee carnage twice!
– Twitch/Mixer integration lets you enjoy the game while keeping both hands on your coffee cup!
– Heavy Metal
– Possessed Grannies
– Dangerous amounts of caffeine
So grab a hot mug and save the world!
Yep. That’s worth slapping down the six bucks this costs on Steam, grabbing a pal and perhaps a few pastries and having at it. Although, it is kinda hard to pull off a special move with a cup pf coffee in one hand and a cheese danish in the other. But hey, I won’t tell you how to play any game you’ve bought. That said, if you do play this with your feet so you can get that buzz going, don’t let me know about it.
