However it is all very pleasant, fairly lightweight (if you stay out of the dictionary) and it all sort of washed over me. I like Impressionist art so that helped, and though less game-like than the recent Monet, I thought it left it for dead as far as a dip into the art world was concerned, as well as being a far more pleasurable expenditure of time.
As it turns out, Night Café is more of a documentary on the lives and works of the impressionists than a game. You are presented with an opening menu with six locations to choose from. Each location offers you more information about one or two of the eight members of the impressionist movement featured in the game, and you have to solve a little puzzle to gain a key to the gallery for each impressionist. The history is presented using period photographs and films, combined with computer graphic art to flesh out the locations and the actual paintings. It's an "edutainment" title, in this case heavier on the "edu" than the "tainment."
