VA-11 HALL-A

A Western-developed, Japanese-inspired cyberpunk visual novel in the PC-98 tradition, in which you play the role of Jill, a bartender in the titular drinking establishment, as she witnesses the aftermath of various significant happenings. Heartfelt, touching, thought-provoking and genuinely amusing, and a spinoff of indie cyberpunk adventure Read Only Memories that is superior in almost every way to its source material.
