Born of Bread Review

Welcome to my review of Born of Bread on PC. This game is brought to us by developers WildArts Studio Inc. and is published by Dear Villagers and Plug In Digital. The game is available now on PC, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch.

It will set you back £24.99 on PC and £29.99 on consoles. The game is an action-adventure game with turn-based RPG elements and is an adorable adventure for all to play.

The Game

The game starts with our main protagonist being created, he is a flour golem with a never-ending childlike wonder about him. His name is Loaf. Like any adventure/RPG, you will learn new tricks as you progress through the game, so stick with it as it starts a little slower.

But in my opinion, that’s not a bad thing with this game, as it teaches you what you need to know in this initial phase. It’s kind of like a tutorial, but isn’t an obvious one. The game soon opens up for you to explore the world of Born of Bread. Areas to explore range from the ruins of the Forest of Roots to the frozen landscapes of Frosty Flats. As I mentioned up above, the game has turn-based battles. But that’s not it, some of the battles have a mix-up of turn-based and real-time hybrid battles. So you best keep your whits about you and stay on your toes else your enemies may catch you out.

The gameplay is fun and will keep you busy for a good 20-25 hours if you don’t rush through it. There are many different tasks to do, you don’t just have your main quest line. There are side quests for you to keep yourself busy whilst travelling through the wacky storyline that will have you giggling from the get-go.

Not only does the game have turn-based combat, but it also has some light puzzles to challenge you just to mix things up a bit. I feel these additions to the game are fantastic and help you enjoy it even more.

Born of Bread has some adorable 2.5D graphics that will have you smiling from ear to ear while playing. The music in the game also matches up well with the aesthetic in Born of Bread.

It ran well on my PC and my Steam Deck too, and I did not experience any minor/major bugs or crashes. Even though the game is marked as “Playable” on Steam Deck, it ran perfectly and I had zero issues with it on my Steam Deck OLED model.


Born of Bread is an adorable game that will have you smiling from ear to ear with how cute it can be. It has great gameplay that will keep you coming back for more. It runs very well on my PC (Ryzen 7 3700X, RTX 3070) and also on my Steam Deck.

If you wish to purchase the game, you can do so on the Official Steam Store page.

I score Born of Bread an 8/10.
