Dear Villagers and WildArts have confirmed a release date for Born of Bread, which is coming to Nintendo Switch.

Pitched as “a home-cooked retro throwback to classic cartoony RPGs full of fun characters and charming stories for children and adults alike,” it stars the flour golem Loaf who must rescue a mystical land after beings from another age cause havoc across it.

In a 2.5D illustrated setting you will have to overcome environmental puzzles while defeating enemies in turn-based and real-time hybrid battles, knowing what they are weak or resistant against to seize the advantage.

“We’re so excited to be able to bring people Born of Bread in time for the holidays, as it’s a wholesome adventure that feels perfect for the whole family,” enthuses WildArts lead designer and programmer Nicolas Lamarche. “Born of Bread was inspired by classic comedy RPGs of our childhood that have remained a part of us in the decades that followed. Thankfully the genre has remained evergreen and we think fans of all ages will be nourished by Loaf’s journey.”

Dear Villagers head of publishing Guillaume Jamet adds: “Born of Bread is genuinely funny, endearing, has a strong visual identity, and best of all, it’s fun to play! It really is an all-ages treat, and we can’t wait for players to finally get their hands on it in December!”

The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, or ingredients, which include:

  • 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

Born of Bread will be released digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 5 December 2023.
