Currently in Early Access, Caffeine: Victoria's Legacy is a fantasy Visual Novel with a Steampunk theme and it's going to be releasing in full on March 20 with Linux support.

"Caffeine: Victoria's Legacy is a choice-rich, fantasy adventure visual novel set in a steampunk Victorian reality. Join Taka in discovering his roots and search for his family's secrets, in a city where baristas are knights and coffee is king."

Visual Novels aren't something I usually cover here myself, mainly as they're not what really interests me. However, Caffeine: Victoria's Legacy has a level of quality that appears to rise above a lot of what's come out in recent years. Some pretty good writing, it's graphically very pretty, wonderful music and there's plenty of actual animation included too.

It does look nice but actually I can't hack the music. I had to stop the trailer halfway through.

Same, what awful bawling that was. Muted, it's just a very slow slideshow; really can't get a feel for how this plays or what the themes are (apart from maybe something about a terrible musical karaoke night).

Ugh, i agree with Purple and Cybolic. The music is ughh. I was expecting sometihng in japanese for some reason and the ong just was not good.
Setting seems interesting though. ( Steampunk ? )
Will wait and see some reviews.
