Born of Bread

Canadian studio WildArts is developing Born of Bread, a 2.5D adventure RPG inspired by the Paper Mario series coming to PC via Steam. A release date has yet to be announced.

Born of Bread follows a flour golem who teams up with a colorful cast of characters and explores the regions of a mysterious world to stop beings of another age from wreaking havoc across the land. It uses a turn-based combat system in which you must press the correct button and know your enemy’s weakness to land a successful attack.

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

Beings from another age are causing havoc across the land! And with their mischief comes a great threat to everyone. The unlikeliest hero, a golem born of bread, will find himself and his newfound friends in the middle of a drama that’s thousands of years in the making. Together, they will visit incredible locals and meet fascinating characters, from the mysterious ruins of the Forest of Roots to the bustling metropolis of South Munch City. Although he may not look like much, Loaf might be the hero this land kneads.
