In the game, players will have to run a café while also taking care of a dragon. The game offers the opportunity to do everything from growing and harvesting ingredients to helping out customers (for PR purposes). As for the dragon, it seems the sibling protagonists must raise it properly if they want to save their mother who has fallen into a deep sleep.
From the publisher (via Gematsu):
The story opens with a twin brother and sister learning to cook and manage a small café under their mother’s tutelage. All was peaceful and routine until one morning when the twins discover that their mother has fallen into a deep sleep and won’t wake up. Suddenly, a strange old man appears to inform them that they must raise a dragon in order to save her. Working together with three quirky café employees, the two siblings must figure out how to a wrangle a dragon and manage the family business while finding a way to save their mother.
