Miracle Gates Entertainment based in Bali, Indonesia, has spun a calm and cozy tale – and it comes in a bowl of soup.

The Night Soup is a point-and-click story-driven game set in Southside Town on Dewata Island. You play as the ex-”Grand Hotel” chef Nathan, whose life takes a tragic turn, and he has to step away from the glamour of luxury culinary life.

In the game, you help him run a small roadside soup shop, open exclusively on sunrise watch hours, in order to survive the competition. Due to this unique selling point, Nathan’s soup shop attracts a different crowd, made up of night shift workers and others craving good soup from 10 PM to 7 AM.

As you progress through the story, Nathan’s sous chef chops are put to the test in the form of cooking puzzles. Players can sharpen their culinary skills with recipes and mini-games through a fun and simple point-and-click interface.

The trailer features some of the colorful cast of characters – or, should we say, customers. You not only share the ups and downs of life with these interesting guests, but they could also give you a new recipe or two.

Key gameplay features include:

  • Narrative-focused, simple gameplay for a calm experience
  • Interactive, animated cooking mini-games
  • Beautifully illustrated characters and environments with a comfy OST

With several menus, cooking styles, characters, and events to keep you on your toes, The Night Soup has a lot to offer visual novel and cooking game lovers. It also helps that the game features a number of real-life delicious Indonesian dishes – we’re drooling already!

You can download the relaxing and cheery demo at their page. You can catch updates from the Miracle Gates Entertainment website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Youtube.
