Indie developer WildArts, in partnership with Dear Villagers, are happy to announce their upcoming adventure RPG Born of Bread will finally be ready for consumption on December 5th when it launches on PC, Switch, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series platforms.

To commemorate this announcement, WildWarts has released an all new trailer teasing more of the wacky characters, wild worlds, strategic battles, and all manner of shenanigans when Born of Bread launches on December 5th.

Born of Bread is a home-cooked turn-based role-playing adventure that throws back to classic cartoony RPGs full of fun characters and charming stories for children and adults alike. Beings from another age are causing havoc across the land and their mischief comes as a great threat for everyone. The unlikeliest hero, Loaf, a golem born of bread who possesses a never-ending childlike wonder, will find himself and his newfound friends in the middle of a drama that’s thousands of years in the making.

Explore a wonderful world ripe with mysteries, ranging from the enigmatic ruins of the Forest of Roots to the freezing landscapes of Frosty Flats. With the help of your buddies, face off against menacing baddies and engage in fun, quirky turn-based /real-time hybrid combat.

“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,” said 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.”

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

The full recipe to bake Born of Bread requires the following ingredients:

  • 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

To start with, you’ll want your flour golem, Loaf. Put him in a mystical land where he can mingle with his friends and local folk. Although he may not look like much, Loaf might be the hero this land kneads!

Stir in a story of beings from another age causing havoc across the land. And with their mischief comes a great threat to everyone!

Mold an eclectic cast of endearing characters, 2.5D illustrated setting, environmental puzzles, and unique turn-based /real-time hybrid battles. Be sure you know what your enemy is weak or resistant against, as it will take brains and reflexes to thwart Born of Bread’s throngs of foes.

Fusion Paradox Arrives Nov 1st on Nintendo Switch!

Indie publisher Sometimes You, together with talented indie developer, Nikolai Usachev, today announced the soon to be released superb looking top down roguelike action-shooter Fusion Paradox.

Releasing on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Microsoft Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch on 1st November 2023, this accomplished, all out action romp, mixes exploring, with fast paced shooting that delivers a high octane experience for gamers who like a challenge plus plenty of surprises.

Fight the forces and anomalies that have captured the Agency. Defy the ancient goddess of war and free it!

It’s up to you!

You assume the role of one of the special agents who arrived at the Agency for Supernatural Threat Reduction in response to a red alert signal. Waking up in a secret laboratory, the hero realises that all the agency’s employees have lost their sanity, and he himself has been subjected to strange energy influences, experiencing momentary amnesia and gaining the ability to change his state. Passing through numerous obstacles and battling hordes of the possessed, you will have to reach the source of the threat to free the agency and prevent the danger from spreading to the outside world.

The vision comes to life

Nikolai, succinctly described the game.”Fusion Paradox” combines the “Scrolling Shooter” and “Action Roguelike ” genres. The main distinctive feature is the switching of the hero’s binary state, where each state represents a unique power with its own characteristics and attributes. These powers can include unique weapons, skills, or magical bonuses. Additionally, some of the enemies are vulnerable only in specific states of the hero. It’s crucial for the player to know when to choose the right colour.

Explore, kill, solve and be bold

Fusion Paradox features secret rooms with engaging puzzles that provide additional bonuses. There are characters in the game who offer significant bonuses in case the player fails. Furthermore, the game incorporates classic roguelike mechanics, such as procedurally generated levels with each new playthrough after the hero’s death, dozens of weapon types, numerous unique skills and a variety of enemy types.

In the agency building, there are five floors located in different temporal and spatial dimensions. Mystical events occur here that transcend ordinary time and space. If a place is contaminated, supernatural phenomena can repeat in it even centuries later, as if disrupting the fabric of time. Scientists and magicians investigate the nature of the emergence of anomalous zones in various historical periods by travelling back in time. To reduce the growth and impact of unidentified threats, the administration decided to relocate these spaces from their temporal periods inside the agency building, allocating entire floors for them.


During the course of progressing through the floors, the player may come across obelisks of power that provide permanent bonuses to various attributes: additional lives for the yellow and blue heroes, increased movement speed, damage boost, and reduced cooldown time between dashes. These enhancements stay with the player even after the character’s death.

Technically speaking

The look, attention to detail  and ever changing locations, are just some of the great features. Nikolai, ”Game engine graphics effects were utilised and meticulously fine-tuned manually, ranging from particle systems to shaders.”

Explosive Facts & Features

  • Five distinct levels
  • Puzzles galore
  • Universal spells
  • Hazardous armour
  • Poison!!!
  • Ice Storms
  • Pistols
  • Stingers
  • Stone Guard Statues
  • Grenades
  • 69!!! Weapons!!!!!
  • Bosses – Agency Boss Possessed King and more
  • 4-6 hours. But some players spend even more than 20 hours in the game.
  • … Too many to list!!

Random WOW Factor

After death, all floors are reassembled from scratch, with changes in the room placement and their sizes. New random spells, weapons, power obelisks and additional weapons appear on the floors. Some of the enemies are inaccessible during the initial playthrough and new ones gradually appear in subsequent playthroughs to avoid overwhelming the player initially and to provide gradual new challenges.
