    Start the game in a small caravan where you hand-place your equipment to ensure the perfect set-up for you. You also get to choose your coffee recipes for the day in Coffee Caravan, which allows you to cater to your customer’s tastes! Use that money to buy new, more efficient appliances to make your business run smoother and faster. You can even buy decorations like trees, lampposts, flowers, and more to beautify your seating area. There are also different coffee recipes you can buy and experiment with to create the cozy coffee empire you always wanted! 

    Release Date

    The most exciting thing about Coffee Caravan now is that Broccoli Games announced that the game will release May 20th! That’s just a few weeks away. Then you get to experience the cozy wholesomeness of running your own tiny coffee shop. Until then, add the game to your Steam Wishlist and check out the demo, which has quite a few levels for you to play!

    There’s something so satisfying about playing restaurant management sims. Managing the decor, the employees, food options, and customer satisfaction without the real life clean-up is so much fun. But what if you had to deal with difficult workers and had to fend off disasters? Well, Recipe for Disaster lets you experience both! The game expertly captures the fast-paced, drama-filled environment of a professional kitchen. Build and decorate your dream restaurant, build your own menus with recipes you’ve created, manage staff, and satisfy customers! 

    Assemble your perfect restaurant using intuitive built-in tools. Design the layout and decorate with furniture and decor to create your ideal environment. From plants to lamps and lanterns, fun table designs and wall textures, you’re able to create whatever type of restaurant you want. Hire staff from a pool of people. Consider their traits and skill levels to gather a competent staff. You need to manage their mood and stamina levels to avoid breakdowns and poor work ethic. Recipe for Disaster also lets you assign each person to a specific task. They may or may not enjoy that task, so shuffling workers around may be necessary to find balance. Even use the recipe editor to freely create your own recipes, but remember that the customer is always right, so your recipes may need to be adjusted to suit their tastes or even allergies. 

    Release Date

    Recipe for Disaster is available now on Steam!

    This game reminds me of Restaurant Empire II in the management sim-type similarities. However, I think you should try out Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!!, too!

    The Magical Mixture Mill is an exciting, colorful business management game by developer Glowlight. Griselda’s Magical Mixtures is popular amongst adventurers as a one stop shop for all potion needs. Enhance strength, intelligence, beauty, and more with concoctions from Griselda’s. However, time has taken its toll on the elderly witch, Griselda, and she’s looking for her replacement. That replacement is you, of course! Your adventuring career has been cut short by an intolerance to concoctions, so you’re the perfect candidate to take over. 

    Alongside your goblin assistant, create an automated potion-making mega store. The Magical Mixture Mill gives you a variety of workstations to build. Plus, there are other production line necessities so you can mass-produce the necessary potions to help adventurers. You aren’t always stuck in the shop, though! Explore a beautifully vibrant world full of colorful designs, too. Find and gather the necessary resources for your business. Just be careful, some of the plants fight back! 

    Can you learn the tricks of the trade and successfully take over Griselda’s famous operation?

    News Tower, by developer Sparrow Night, lets you live the life of an aspiring influential publisher in 1930s New York. Search the globe for worthy news stories to publish. Follow key moments from the 1930s like Prohibition, the Great Depression, and more. Or write up stories that are a little less important, like the local lost cat. It’s your choice on what stories to cover, but choose wisely, as you aren’t simply writing for yourself! The mafia, the mayor, and other important factions want to use your influence to publish their “truths” for all to see. Bending to their will compromises the integrity of journalism, but it does earn you unique rewards! 

    Manage and optimize your News Tower of employees as your business expands. Hire writers, janitors, photographers, and more to make sure your newspaper becomes a success. Also ensure each person’s needs are met so they’ll be as productive as possible. Decorate each floor of the tower to offset the oily, noisy printing machines that will cause your writers to write poorly. Lush plants ought to do the trick. Your newspaper won’t make sales and become successful if your employees aren’t happy!

    Will you become a newspaper mogul?

    Release Date

    You can find News Tower on Steam now.

    In Bloody Hell Hotel by developer Unfold Games, you play as a vampire who’s just woken up from a coma that’s lasted centuries. Upon waking, you find your grand estate is in ruins. You decide to renovate it and turn it into a functioning hotel! That’s no easy task, of course. Times are tough and resources are scarce, plus you being a blood-thirsty vampire isn’t exactly helpful with customer satisfaction. But none of that will stop you! 

    Beneath your estate is a crypt and cave system. They’re the perfect spot to forage, farm, and craft! Bloody Hell Hotel has customers that expect high-quality room service, which you can give them by gathering mushrooms, milking the undead cow, and collecting eggs from zombie chickens. Prepare tasty dishes for your guests and serve them to meet their satisfaction. Use your vampire powers to clean up the run-down estate. Then, upgrade, decorate, and furnish the hotel to make it more inviting for customers. Even hire staff to help you throughout the hotel. And if there’s a demanding guest you don’t want to serve, eat them! You’re a vampire, after all. Don’t forget to head down to the crypt to craft some weapons, and set out on a journey through the dungeons to earn some resources and upgrades for the hotel! 

    Release Date

    Bloody Hell Hotel is coming to Steam, but has no release date yet.
