Spirited Cafe - A Game of Spirits, Cooking & Family Drama

Take on the exciting role of part of a family that is indentured to the witch Baba, bound by ineffable obligation to run her restaurant in the Crossroads until you can repay your family’s debts. It exists at the eternal nexus where the Human World and the Spirit World overlap. Your job is to protect the Human World by satisfying any guest that arrives from the Spirit World to this strange little place in space and time. If these spirits are fed and contented, they will return home with the sunrise. If they are not, then there is no telling what strange aims they will pursue among the Human World.

You're all that stands between the Human World and all manner of things from outside. On your side, you've got a finnicky stove, a creepy cookbook, and a little bit of magic. Ghosts, goblins, trolls, and tengu file into your little cafe, hungry for mischief. You and your family better cook for your lives!        


You never know what you’ll have to feed, or what it wants to eat!  

Spirited Café is a fun, quirky, and frenetic TTRPG based on the personality of the spirit market in the opening scenes of Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirted Away, and kitchen chaos of the video game Overcooked. At its core, this is a rules-light and high-energy game about family drama and all the things that go bump in the night. It is built on the bones of the Forged in the Dark system, using the  “Position and Effect” mechanics to keep the tension high, and board-game style elements to keep track of racing clocks as you feed troublesome spirits in the Crossroads and work off your debt to the witch Baba.


"There's a whole lot more story packed into a game inspired by cooking simulation games than I expected there to be. And the Studio Ghibli feels are strongs. Well done, very cute, and a lot of fun."--LoneGunman

As a fan of light-hearted games like Golden Sky Stories, I had to check out Spirited Cafe the moment I learned about it. Spirited Cafe is a game in which you play a family that have by some means become indebted to Baba, a cruel and demanding spirit wh [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
