Published in 2020, Coffee Talk is a visual novel set in a cafeteria inhabited by fantastical creations. Fahmi developed the idea for the game while working as marketing and public relations director at Toge Productions, and after the launch opened his own studio, Pikselnesi, which published What Comes After.
Of Coffee Talk we say in its review that “the best thing about Coffee Talk is that it reproduces, in itself, the romantic experience of being in a cafeteria for those of us who like that kind of thing”.
Pikselnesia is awaiting the release of the Switch version of the Afterlove EP, which was announced during the Nintendo Indie World Showcase last December.
Today we received the most devastating news. Our beloved Fahmi, the author of Coffee Talk and a beloved friend of Toge Productions has passed away. We are absolutely devastated by his untimely departure.
Rest in peace.
