About This Game


Hey there people! Did you know that there’s more than one way to indulge your crumbly fantasies? Why not race a bagel around a living room as fast as you can. We promise you won’t be disappointed.

iHazCupquake did - see what happened!

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.

Alrighty, no loafing around here.

Let's not get emotional and crumble here, I want you to crust me when I tell you this game isn't bad. You just gotta get nice and toasty in your chair and grain a good idea on how the controls work.

After that you'll be on a roll and become the best piece of bread out there.

Rye buy this when you can get a loaf of bread at the store for 1.99?
Because it's butter.

Played this game with my wife and daughter who managed to make a piece of toast with fluff and ants on it ... Really fun game but much more enjoyable with a controller. I managed to cook a peice of toast using a rocket ship and a TV.

It's a funny game, but unplaybable without the Steam Controller....which is kinda sad cuz not all of us can afford the Steam Controller :'c

Don't get unless you own a Steam controller or can buy one.

Edit: Any (almost) controller type. Game is still impossible with a keyboard and mouse though, really sad too.

My opinion about the game overall:
If you were expecting a funny/punny review then you came to the wrong review. I decided to make an actual helpful/serious review for the game. Let me start off saying this is a really great game and is a real and serious game despite looking like a joke, back when I saw this game in Greenlight I laughed and gave it a vote expecting it to be a game that wouldn't even get to a full release, when it first came out my friend bought it so I went to his place and played it for a few hours, after playing it a few times I decided to buy i. Aas it got more and more updates it got better. A lot of people say the game is hard to play with a keyboard but I disagree, back when I first played the game I didn't have a controller so I played it with a keyboard, after a while, I got a controller, and the only thing that was hard about playing with a controller was that sometimes I got confused with the buttons' names, overall it's better with a controller. Awesome game, they really put a lot of work to it and listened to the community throughout the making of the game.
Cons and pros:
+Remappable keyboard controls
+Changable sensitivity
+Graphic options also pretty customizable
+Great graphics
+Great support from the devlopers of the game in issues you might run into
-Controls can take time to get used to
-New players can sometimes be annoyed by the game's challenge but that's pretty subjective

Story mode: At the beginning of each level you are presented with some sort of letter about an insane guy who's also the house owner, you finish reading it or skip it and you then spawn as a piece of bread at the start of the level, at some levels you have extras you can add to yourself like jam and butter which have some side effects. You travel through the level possibly using various objects on the way to eventually get to the toaster or pan or whatever else you want to fry yourself on, in most levels there is more than one way to toast yourself. You get a grade based on your edibility, tastiness and possibly your time but I'm not sure about that, grades are from A++ from F(you only get f if you didn't finish the level). Story mode is overall challenging and my personal favorite. There are 8 levels in the story mode game mode.

Bagel Race: In this gamemode you spawn as a bagel in a different spawn than your spawn points at Story Mode, you need to run through the map using 3 and 4 keys(by default assuming you're using the keyboard) and the mouse and pass through checkpoints on the way to the end, you get a grade based on how fast you completed the race. There are 8 levels in the bagel race game mode. You have no edibility in this game mode.

Rampage: In this game mode you play as a baguette. In this mode your goal is to cause as much damage as possible to various objects around the level, the more damage you cause the better grade you are gonna get. You have multiplier for everytime you smash a few things at once. You have no edibility in this game mode. Rampage has 8 levels. You have a time limit at this game mode.

Cheese hunt: In this game mode you play as a crackbread. In this game mode you spawn as crackbread and start wandering around to find cheese and touch it so it sticks to you, as far as I know there are 5 pieces of cheese in each level. you lose ediblity by falling and/or hitting something too hard. You have no time limit in this game mode. There are 8 levels to Cheese Hunt.

Zero G(ravity): In this game mode you play as a slice of bread. This game mode is pretty much the same as the regular gamemode only there isn't gravity and you need to fly around with jets attached to you. I cannot explain the controls to this game mode as they are very complicated to explain, the main difference from the main game mode is that your grade is also based off the amount of fuel you've used up(You have infinite fuel, you use up fuel when you use your jets). You have edibility in this game mode, you lose ediblity when you touch the floor as far as I know. There is no time limit in this game mode. There are 8 levels to Zero G(ravity).

I'll edit this to explain about the gamemodes left soon.

… I could go on. I won’t. But I could.


Due to popular demand Ive decided to add a more ‘wholemeal’ first look review for people who like that sort of thing.

The game is essential qwop combined with the floor is lava. You navigate your slice of bread around various obstacles on a quest to get yourself nicely toasted (insert your own joke there). Encountering dirty items reduces your edibility and therefore your overall score, whilst getting smothered in tasty tasty jam boosts it.

The game controls exactly how you would imagine it does. Each corner is assigned a different button which when pressed holds that edge in place apparently regardless of the surface/physics. The mouse or thumb stick flicks the bread around of can be used to nudge it around for precise movements. Practiced or naturally skilled will surely be able to cartwheel their way onto the leaderboards quickly whilst people starting out will ultimately spend more time flailing around like a dying Magicarp. Your main opponent is your own frustration.

If the play style is sounding very familiar that’s because it is. Anyone who has already played Surgeon Simulator or Octodad will immediately recognise the pattern of destruction and failure. This means that behind its freshly baked exterior the game is likely to become stale fairly quickly. Like its sister games there is a big potential for fun workshop content but ultimately you cannot judge a game on what could possibly be made by fans later on.

It is worth pointing out that it is an early access game, meaning that it is essentially unfinished, although this game does feel a lot more complete than most. It is very much playable with the exception of a few minor bugs. Enabling the gif record mode makes the game basically unplayable and the music always seems to be coming out of a random corner of the room.

I think overall most people will have already made a decision about this game, and whatever your thoughts they are probably correct. It’s ultimately a casual iPad-destined meme-maker but it clean fun and will give most people a few laughs for less than the price of an average cinema ticket. If flinging a slice of bread around for a few hours is the sort of thing that will brighten your day, then this is probably for you.

Rather tricky, but very fun. You use 1,2,3,4 to 'grab' onto a surface, then you swing yourself to move! The goal is to get to the toaster on the other side of the room, and to toast yourself. It's definitely not as simple as it sounds, though!

It's a fantastic game for its price. :>

EDIT 12/04/14: I didn't expect this review to get so much attention, geez. x3

A lot of people seem to be under the impression that it's free-play, and that there's no real goal or penalities, etc. I'll clear that up for you.

There's no sandbox mode yet. The only real limitation you have, is not touching the floor. If you do so, it'll drain your 'health bar'.

There are a couple of different levels. Even if you manage to complete them all, the replay value is high, as there's multiple ways to complete each level!

Despite being early access, this game feels perfectly complete! It's fun to play in 'bursts'. :>

*some li'l genuis was complaining about everyones' playtime on it. It literally just came out yesterday (12/13), dork.

I started the day as a slice of bread. Not the end piece, because no one likes the end piece. No, I was the second slice in. I emerged from my loaf in glorious fashion, spreading my crumbs all over as I flew from what I once called home. This was the start of my journey.

I emerged in to a world of culinary decadence. To my left was Mt. Butter, and to my right was Jelly Valley. There were so many places to see, so many things to do. Life had finally begun.

I began my voyage to Toaster Kingdom by first heading for Mt. Butter. It was always a dream of mine to stand-atop the hills on Mt. Butter, and I did just that. I paraded to the top in mere seconds, only to slide down Mt. Butter and splash right in to Jelly Valley.

It was like a slip-n-slide of deliciousness.

I emerged from Jelly Valley covered from bread to toe, only to come to the edge of the world. I could see it all from here; the vast landscapes of Breadland, the hills of Crumbilina, but most of all, I could see Toaster Kingdom, and I knew my journey was far from over.

In a moment of serenity, I took a giant leap of faith, and I floated through space and time, in an absolute moment of glory. I didn't know what was waiting for me below, but I knew this was what had to be done.

Falling for what seemed an eternity, I thought this to be the end. Just then, something emerges below me, and I land softly on to a giant looking board with wheels. My savior.

I thanked it for saving me, and we bonded very quickly. It turns out, we are both heading to the same destination, and he agrees to let me travel on him. I hold on tight, and off we go. We travel through canyons, wastelands, hell, we even traveled through large ravines.

We're almost there.

We arrive at the Counter-Top Haven. The final stop before Toaster Kingdom. Just when we are in-reach of the Toaster Kingdom, my new friend informs me that he can go no further, for he is not capable of climbing. He entrusts me with a gift for King Toaster, a serum of sorts. He called it Maple Syrup. I am clueless what it would be used for, after-all the King is french. I don't understand what he would possibly do with such a thing. Nevertheless, I say thank you for everything, as a tear of jelly starts rolling down my face, and I start my ascent to reach the top of Counter-Top Haven.

It's a rough climb. It takes me about a minute or two, as I seem to be slipping and sliding all over the cliffs and peaks of this place. Maybe it's the jelly, maybe it's the butter, but all's I know is that I must persevere. I must make it to Toaster Kingdom.

I finally reach the top of Counter-Top Haven, and Toaster Kingdom and the Toaster King are in my line of sight. I flop towards them as fast as my nimble body can take me, battered and buttered and bruised. I reach the entrance to Toaster Kingdom. I can feel it now. I'm almost there. I only have to climb once more and I will have completed my first voyage.

With all the strength I can muster, I grip tightly on to the walls of Toaster Kingdom. I manage to hoist myself a-top this beautiful landscape. I'm here. I made it. The Toaster King is in sight. I just have to decend to the throne room, and I will have fulfilled my purpose in life.

Just as I am readying myself to decend towards the king, a gust of wind blows me off of the top of the kingdom. Down I fly, past Counter-Top Haven. Below I go, to the ends of the earth. No one to save me this time. I fall. I fall.

I land in the dirt.


I wither and die.

10 / 10. Would play again.

first off, i must note I am a very impatient fellow.

That being said, I hate all that is this game. This is a trial and error sort of game, the trouble being every trial can last about 15 minutes or longer. the first hour of the game is spent trying to get used to the controls. Then you blunder along trying not to touch the floor or other various things through each room. Apparently the controls are better with a controller, but after trying it with my steam controller, they were even worse. I am using a keyboard and mouse, and while I got the controls down pretty good finally, some things are just random and uncontrollable.
When you are not figthing the controls, you are fighting the camera and it is very hard to navigate up a wall with limited grip time while having to adjust the camera as well and trying to squish yourself up between two tight spaces.

It took me like 20 minutes just to fit inside a toaster thanks to flaily bread controls.
Anyway, the gameplay itself is unique and clever, but not very fun. It is just repeating the same thing over again until you figure something out to get you further along in your helpless search for a heat source.

When you miraculously reach a heat source, good luck trying to find the place where it actually would heat you up. I am not sure if there are certain spots only that are hot, or if the game just isn't working correctly. For example, I was climbing all over a space heater, but only one tiny spot on the whole thing heated me up. As you scramble around the heat source trying to get toasted, you will likely fall off and die. Not very fun.

If you are a more patient human being than I and enjoy doing long repetitions of bread flopping over everything, then buy it. I personally find it very boring, slow moving and frustrating because you never feel truly in control.

The game does give people like me some help though. If you fail twice on a given level, some super butter or something comes and gives you unlimited life and grip. This makes beating the levels much easier, but it makes a boring game even more boring.

One good thing I can say about "I Am Bread" is that there is a rather large amount of content. Too bad the game is too horrible to play through it all. I usually force myself to beat terrible games, but for the second time in memory, I have had enough after 5 levels.
