In a nutshell
Tavern Talk is a cozy visual novel about running a tavern in a Dungeon and Dragon-inspired fantasy! Gather rumors, serve drinks, and meet adventurers on a life-changing quest. Tavern Talk is the debut Entertainment title of our studio that we will self-publish.
You are the owner of the Wayfarer’s Inn, a popular watering hole in the fantasy land of Asteria.
But you’re no ordinary barkeep. Be it a potion of seething fury or prancing swords, the drinks you serve can change your customer’s destiny forever. You can also turn the rumours you hear at work into intrepid quests for your patrons!
Befriend a colourful cast of adventurers as they brag about their latest triumph – or commiserate an utter failure. Whether it’s relaxation or a fresh thrill, you’re on hand to give each patron what they need.
Beyond the walls of this cosy tavern, a world-threatening danger is brewing. Every quest, rumour and conversation is intertwined with the ultimate fate of the land.
