Enter our contest and get in on the cyberpunk bartending action by winning VA-11 HALL-A for Switch!

Kick back with a stiff drink for today’s contest for VA-11 HALL-A on Switch!

Hey, I’ve been waiting for this one for a long time! I’ve missed all of its prior releases, but now that it’s finally coming to Switch I think it’s time to pony up and get in on the cyberpunk bartender action.

You can get in on it now by winning your own copy of VA-11 HALL-A!


Read an official synopsis because I’m too drunk to write one myself:

It’s 207X in Glitch City, a city boasting unparalleled technological advancements. However, residents suffer the effects of unethical nanomachine experiments and a corrupt government. To escape this sad reality, residents seek solace through android lovers, supersonic drone racing, or the bottom of a boozy glass.

Enter Jill, resident bartender at VA-11 HALL-A, Glitch City’s preeminent dive bar. She’ll pour drinks for a humanoid robot popstar, the editor-in-chief of a beloved magazine and his interns, law enforcement officials, and even a boy-crazy hacker. Meanwhile, they’ll pour out their souls.

VA-11 HALL-A  mixes alcohol with a dash of simple syrup and a hefty pour of point-and-click adventures: characters react to drinks served, with customers’ level of inebriation affecting the flow of the story. Serving drinks that suit patrons’ tastes gets Jill tips to pay her bills, but dissatisfied patrons may leave her to drown in her own sorrows.

Set the tone for the adventure by curating infectious electronic synthpop playlists for the jukebox. A dark, pixelated anime art style frames the laid back experience, adding to VA-11 HALL-A‘s immersive atmosphere.

If you haven’t played this one yet, you’ve at least heard about it. I’m getting thirsty just thinking about it!

How To Win

To enter to win your copy, make me a drink. Tell me the ingredients, how to make it, and what it’s called. I always draw winners at random, but today I’ll pick the best response as a winner and randomize the other one. Because I make the rules, and I’ve been drinking since 10 am!

We have two NA Switch copies to give out. Winners will be drawn on Thursday, May 9.

VA-11 HALL-A is available now for Nintendo Switch, and basically everything else. Head over to Destructoid for more chances to win!
