There's a bun in the oven
Hey Buddies! Fresh out of the oven, indie developer WildArts, in partnership with Dear Villagers, have released a demo for its upcoming RPG Born of Bread on Switch in Europe, ahead of its launch later this year.
Born of Bread is a home-cooked retro turn-based role-playing adventure that throws back to classic cartoony RPGs full of fun characters and charming stories for children and adults alike. Beings from another age are causing havoc across the land and their mischief comes as a great threat for everyone. The unlikeliest hero, Loaf, a golem born of bread who possesses a never-ending childlike wonder, will find himself and his newfound friends in the middle of a drama that’s thousands of years in the making.
Explore a wonderful world ripe with mysteries, ranging from the enigmatic ruins of the Forest of Roots to the freezing landscapes of Frosty Flats. With the help of your buddies, face off against menacing baddies and engage in fun, quirky turn-based /real-time hybrid combat.
This demo encapsulates the first 45-60 minutes of the game. Here players will discover new mechanics, such as an extensive combat tutorial, an introduction to the skill tree, and you’ll meet your first companion. The full game will feature new zones, allies, NPCs, sidequests, settings, and a unique “Battle Broadcast” system that offers a fictitious, in-game chat stream during combat encounters.
This is but a taste of what the final game has in store. The full recipe to bake Born of Bread requires the following ingredients:
- One flour golem who possesses a never-ending childlike wonder and a set of odd abilities
- A wonderful world ripe with mysteries
- An eclectic cast of fleshed-out characters
- A wacky storyline
- A pinch of light puzzles
- Turn-based battles with a dash of real-time minigames
- Bright, colorful 2.5D graphics
- Side-missions (add to taste)
- A captive audience granting you bonuses in battle
To start with, you’ll want your flour golem, Loaf. Put him in a mystical land where he can mingle with his friends and local folk. Although he may not look like much, Loaf might be the hero this land kneads!
Stir in a story of beings from another age causing havoc across the land. And with their mischief comes a great threat to everyone!
Mold an eclectic cast of endearing characters, 2.5D illustrated setting, environmental puzzles, and unique turn-based /real-time hybrid battles. Be sure you know what your enemy is weak or resistant against, as it will take brains and reflexes to thwart Born of Bread’s throngs of foes.
