Upcoming Video Game Finally Lets You Experience Life as a Slice of Bread

Video games let you see the world through the eyes of a variety of cool characters, including Italian plumbers, anthropomorphic pie charts and, oh yeah, a whole lot of muscle-bound soldiers. However, there are no games in which you play as a humble slice of bread. Why can't we just get our digital carbs on? Well, don't tell the dude who invented the South Beach diet, but a bread-themed video game is breaking the mold.

It's called I am Bread and, well, when you play it, you are bread. The object is to navigate a suburban household, avoid obstacles and eventually reach the fabled toaster of legend. It seems to play fast and loose with the bread physics, but one imagines it wouldn't be a very fun game otherwise.

The game will launch for PC, but after that it should head to home video game consoles. It'll show up sometime next year. This could be the greatest thing in games since dice lead.
