Game puts you on an 'emotional journey' to get toasted

What on the surface looks to be just the latest throwaway Goat Simulator-inspired absurdist game, I Am Bread could actually a challenging and nuanced title.

"The beautiful story of one slice of bread's epic and emotional journey as it embarks upon a quest to become toasted," the game sees you control the aforementioned slice by manipulating its four corners using the shoulder buttons.

The trailer sees it attempting to traverse an apartment using the limited movement that being made from flour yields, flopping along the ceiling fan, trying to access the washing machine and even skateboarding.

Condiments meanwhile, appear to add new abilities.

Ridiculous yes, but imagine the slice of bread was a Pikmin-esque alien with a cutesy name and this could be heralded as the next great physics-based platformer.

Time will tell whether the game can impress on the gameplay front, it coming from the creators of the insanely addictive Surgeon Simulator and yet to be given a release date.
