About This Game

Best Played with a Controller!

From the creators of Surgeon Simulator comes its prequel - an adventure with a hero like no other! ‘I am Bread’ is the epic story of a slice of bread’s journey to become toast. Take the intrepid, crumby adventurer on a journey from his natural confines of the kitchen, through the home of an unsuspecting owner and into the outside world. This bread will be boldly going where no other bread has gone before . . .

As you become attuned to bread’s uniquely challenging control system, you’ll progress from a fumbling slice of bread to a masterful bread ninja. Traversing your environment is intentionally demanding but reliable, making it possible to master even the most majestic and acrobatic of manoeuvres.

Added Content:

  • GoatBread - Goat Simulator-inspired level called ‘RAMpage mode’. You won't believe your eyes.
  • Team Fortress 2 level...climb Heavy’s face, use tumour-inducing teleporters, fire the minigun and traverse a floor filled with sticky mines, all in the name of becoming “‘sandvich”’…
  • Starch Wars - Attack of the Scones! Take out the Empire's Rye Fighters in this level inspired by a certain beloved universe!

    Key features:

    • Story Mode: Embark on an epic journey to become toast! Take on all hazards to deliciousness as you embark on your adventure throughout the home of an unsuspecting owner: from the kitchen, through the house, to the lounge, and then venture outside into the garden and beyond.
    • Cheese Hunt: Realise the destiny of crisp-bread as you hunt down pieces of cheese to smother yourself in. Can you find all the pieces before you crack up?
    • Bagel Race: Satisfy your taste for speed and bagels as you race across the checkpoints in each level and complete the tracks in the fastest possible time.
    • Rampage: Cause as much destruction as possible throughout the house as you smash everything in sight as (possibly) angry baguette. Mon dieu!
    • Zero-G: Literally bread in space! Make studious use of your bread boosters as you manoeuvre across environments with no gravity, avoiding all the floating hazards this entails in Zero-G mode.
    • Free-play: Explore the world and play as any of the bread types you have unlocked, having crumby fun in your own sweet time.

I DO NOT recommend this game AT ALL! It is the hardest, most difficult game ever put on Steam. There is a flash game called "The World's Hardest Game" as we all know but it's name should be changed to "The World's Second Hardest Game" and this game should be changed to "The Worlds Hardest Game" instead. Even with a remote it is still excrutiatingly hard. You can tell because a youtuber who everyone knows about called Markiplier played this game and he smashed his remote to bits in anger and he openly admitted that he could not play this game and it has made him "more angry than he has ever been in his entire life". Honestly I do not blame him.

So if you are thinking about buying this game; don't bother. It's a complete waste of time and money and YES I have tried it myself and I had to get a refund because I could not do it. I regret buying this game and I don't even know why I got it in the first place. It's that bad. :(

I do kind of wish there was a "Neutral" option for this review.

This game falls under the category of games such as Goat Simulator that expects you to find it funny on premise alone, and sadly it's one joke that lands for very few and even if it does land for you it's unlikely you'll find it funny for several hours.

So... Why is this a recommendation?

-Unlike Goat Simulator, there isn't a grand total of one joke per level. It's ridiculous how many puns are packed into the game and some of the more subtle ones actually made me chuckle. There are no shortage of bread puns in this game.
-This game succeeds in the same way Surgeon Simulator succeeded- It actually has merit above just being a game with bad controls. Both this and Surgeon Sim are games with actual learning curves and the potential of mastery- Games where you can actually get better and better at them and earn your A++ rank.
-Actually really, really hard. I'm not even joking, this game is pretty tough especially if you want high rankings.
-Surprisingly open levels. Your goal is to become toast, but there are many different ways to do that- Making your way to a toaster is one, but you could also toast yourself inside an oven or on a BBQ. How you get to something that can make you into toast is also completely up to you, as long as it doesn't consist of crawling along dirty surfaces such as the floor- But even then, skilful play can get you across the floor with minimal damage, too.

But there's a lot of things that drag this game down, too, unfortunately.

-Like Surgeon Simulator's A&E Edition it outstays its welcome. The campaign mode is at a pretty good length, but if you want 100% completion in this game it will be an incredibly painful and boring experience. They mix it up with different kinds of bread but it isn't really different enough to work particularly well. Especially with all the extra stuff they've added through updates. It's very unlikely you'll actually have the interest to play every extra level at least once.
-The controls are actually TOO bad. Surgeon Sim is a game that appears to have bad controls to the uninitiated, but all you need to do is actually learn the controls and the controls will no longer be an obstacle to your play. I Am Bread, on the other hand, doesn't appear to have that quality- No matter how good you get the game's physics engine will still screw you over at times because your very movement is dependent on the game's physics engine. This may have been because of the fact I didn't use a controller but I still feel like even movement felt more difficult than it needed to be.
-Once again, it may be because I didn't use a controller, but those zero-gravity levels... UGH.
-There didn't appear to be any secrets or secret levels like there were in Surgeon Simulator. Surgeon Sim had this titanic number of easter eggs and so on that were pieced together in order to discover an amazing secret level- I Am Bread doesn't have anything like that.

Overall I Am Bread is IMO not as good as Surgeon Simulator was. It still manages to do what games of its type consistently fail to do but it's a downgrade to what Surgeon Sim was. It's not exactly a game I can muster up a "Not Recommended" rating for because it does have merit especially if this kind of game is what you're looking for, but I'd still recommend you pick up Surgeon Sim instead of this.

Great game, controls are quite hard to get used to and the camera can be weird at times. But other than that a great game. Doesn't hurt that you can do Bagel racing and swing a baguette around.

Game is not bready yet, to say the yeast... but it's still awesome dough.
If you like bread, you knead this game. You'll loaf it. Pardon the buns.

>Rubbed jam on myself
>Jumped off the table
>Landed Jam-side up

This game is the best thing since SLICED BREAD.

Pre-Release Review

It's a goofy physics based game in which you use sticky-controls to guide yourself (a piece of bread) across a room, towards a goal. It's fun as a party game with a bunch of people, but not a game one should buy with the intention of playing alone.

If you've ever wondered what would happen if you mashed QWOP and OctoDad together I Am Bread is it. You play a piece of bread on a quest to get toasted in each level, using various items such as irons or radiators or frying pans. Touching the floor or any other dirty surface will reduce your edibility percentage and once that hits 0% you lose.

Unfortunately, the game’s engine and programming also mean you will have to battle with the camera randomly adjusting itself on certain angles and the bread ragdolling around spastically from time to time. You can alleviate this to some degree by predicting which corner will contact next during a flip and hold that corner’s respective button down but even that can be a guessing game. Keeping in mind, your grip meter is counting down the entire time you are holding any buttons down so you’re on a time limit until you reach stable ground. After a few rounds of flailing and failure the game will throw you a bone by giving you an invincibility power up although using it basically removes any challenge from the game.

I Am Bread is one of those games where you either love the concept or hate it, and I couldn’t find anything to love about it. Maybe it’s just me, but I would rather spend time fighting bad guys than my own controller.

QWOP with toast.

If you aren't familiar with QWOP, it is a game where you have to control someone's individual joints to make them run/walk. It is incredibly awkward as a control scheme and is basically a joke game.

I Am Bread is basically that, except instead of controlling a person, you control a piece of toast. You can stick one or more of the corners of the bread to a surface in order to move, flipping over and over again to get around the level. You can stick to anything, and ultimately, the game is a bit of a physics puzzle.

The problem is that the incredibly awkward controls are endlessly frustrating. Getting into the toaster in the first level is an arduous, unpleasant task which takes an enormous amount of work. The toast flops around freely and almost uncontrollably, and while it is not that hard to simply move around large, flat surfaces, any sort of specific positioning is an awful, awful chore.

And that's just the first level.

This game is endlessly frustrating and unless you actually, genuinely enjoyed QWOP, this game will drive you batty.

I've had this game for months and though it says I've played for 4 hours, the game has never ever worked. Right when I launch it it says game crashed every time.
