The next game from the Surgeon Simulator team lets you role-play as bread

The next game from the creators of Surgeon Simulator is a role-playing game in which you are bread, developer Bossa Studios announced today in a tweet.

I Am Bread looks like a glutenous cross between the ideals of roll-em-up Katamari Damacy and the challenging control scheme of Octodad, in which is appears players have to get the bread to the toaster without damaging it too much. According to the above trailer's YouTube description, the game tells "the beautiful story of one slice of bread's epic and emotional journey as it embarks upon a quest to become toasted."

The trailer shows "edibility" and "deliciousness" meters in the upper corners of the screen, possibly measuring just how badly you'll actually want to eat the bread after it's taken a trip around your house and gotten extremely dirty.

The game appears to have originated at a game jam held last month, during which Bossa tweeted a vine showing a piece of bread climbing up a wall.
