The Adventures Of Breadman is a food-based action-adventure RPG set in a vast, mysterious world full of fruits and vegetables. Along breadman's journey travel by land, air, and sea to uncover secrets and learn the truths about your existence.

To help bring The Adventures Of Breadman to life, our team is collaborating with Phil LaMarr the voice actor from cartoon characters like Hermes from Futurama, Samurai Jack and Wilt from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. He's going to be the voice of Breadman.

We are also collaborating with the award-winning composer James L. Venable whos also done work on cartoons like Samurai Jack and The Powerpuff Girls to compose the soundtrack.

The Adventures Of Breadman is a fully open world experience in which players can go from running through grassy fields full of giant potatoes to climbing giant snowy ice cream mountain peaks to soaring across boiling tomato soup volcanoes. But as breadman is on his search for truth, he can’t let his guard down because there are always threats around every corner.

The Adventures Of Breadman offers an massive unrestricted open world full of mysteries and secrets, and players can traverse the world anyway they'd like. The world challenges players with puzzles to complete and dozens of temples full massive monsters and rare items.

 Down below is 4 minutes of gameplay.

Throughout the world, villages can be discovered they are scattered in many different places, and they're full of shops, items, quest, and traders.

Temples are zones that are spread throughout the world that give the player unique challenges to face. They are riddled with bosses and puzzles. No one temple is the same, one temple may be inside of a giant tree, and another may be inside of a giant peach or on the side of a mountain.

Battle against a diverse set of enemies with responsive, challenging, and fun combat. Travel throughout Kutoroka and collect weapons, uncover new tools and equipment to help you crush your enemies.

Combat in The Adventures Of Breadman is easy to grasp but takes skill to know when it's the right time to dodge specific enemy attacks by rolling or dashing and when to run up close for massive damage.

The world of Kutoroka is a mystical world, and magic is an essential skill-set to have, players, can use their stats to control how skill points are distributed. In the world, there exist four types of magic spicy, sweet, sour, and salty each representing a flavor, they allow different types of attacks, for example, spicy magic allows for the manipulation of fire. But to much fire may begin to cook the food around you, including yourself. Sweet foods are weak to spicy magic and vice versa. It creates an environment where understanding how which types of magic effects certain enemies can be the difference between life and death.

Some players might play with low strength and high divinity to heavily use spells to attack enemies, or some players run a build with high dexterity and strength to dodge enemy attacks and have a high damage output.

As the player travels across the lands and collects and gathers resources to upgrade items to use, the recipe book is a item that breadman carries to store his recipes that are used cook and bake new foods to give himself new abilities and powerups. For example if breadman gathers enough sugar, apples, and flour he can bake a apple pie which will give him a power boost, if breadman gathers enough grapes he can let it sit in his inventory until it ferments and create wine, which once he consumes the wine it adds an ability and combined with the right skill points he can even become a drunken master

Weapons are created by cooking, and players can create swords and armor that are forged by cooking and combine different foods. Cooking is also used to create potions which can apply temporary buffs to the player.

Breadman is on a mission to uncover why the world he lives in is rotting and slowly dying; he’s questioning his existence and is on a mission to uncover the truth about life and death. The Adventures Of Breadman has a dynamic NPC's in which player decision effect NPC responses, which creates many different engaging personalities and outcomes.

The world of Kotoroka is full of your fellow fruit and vegetable friends that you can interact with. In the world of Kotoroka your relationship with different food groups can dictate whether or not they'll be hostile towards you. By doing a quest and assisting certain groups, it can unlock certain quest lines and rare items. Your allies can also help you in boss fights.

Throughout the world, relationships place a vital role in how the story plays out. Each group of fruits and vegetables acts as an independent group, and if breadman does specific actions, he can causes conflicts between for example strawberries and blackberries, which will then cause those two groups to become hostile towards each other

The Adventure Of Breadman was inspired by Studio Ghibli's movies like Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle and by games like The Legend Of Zelda Ocarina Of Time and Wind Waker's fulfilling exploration and by the food filled world of Toriko. We wanted to take our two favorite things, food, and games and re-create the same sense of awe and wonder we felt when we first experienced our favorite titles. 

We wanted to channel a whimsical and majestic vibe of a world full of food and put it into The Adventures Of Breadman's art direction. Down below are our artist Kenneth Birdine's fantastic work.

We'll be working with the Award Winning Composer James L. Venable who's worked on series like Samurai Jack, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends and The Powerpuff Girls. He brought his musical expertise to The Adventures Of Breadman and helped produce a deep enchanting feeling inside the game.

Our goal is to have The Adventures Of Breadman be a game that's platform agnostic so whether your a console gamer, pc gamer or a fan of DRM free platforms like itch.io you'll be able to get your bread fix in anywhere you'd like!

Alphasoftworks is a software development company based in Houston, Texas that was founded in 2014, the majority of our company's background has been in the creation of rendering engines, physics engines, and web apps. Through our years of work, we've gained tons of experience working with game engines and doing large scale development on projects. Our team will be partnering and collaborating with many different people to help bring The Adventures Of Breadman to life.

The game is in the mid-development phase with a working, playable demo for PC. Since full-fledged development got jump-started in late 2017, the majority of the core framework for the game is in place, and the needed mechanics can be easily slid into with ease. The most vital task ahead of us is continuing to design a fully fleshed out open world which captivates the player. We’re currently working towards creating a first Alpha build of the game, and we plan on iterating it with the community.

The Adventures Of Breadman started as a passion project to bring to life an idea that was brewing in our heads for years. Our company has been self-funded for over five years. We turned to Kickstarter for the financial help and more importantly, to have the ability to build and develop The Adventures Of Breadman alongside the community and create a deep, awe-inspiring experience that players can enjoy.

Kickstarter also gives us the unparalleled ability to have creative freedom and not have to answer to a shady publisher demanding micro-transactions or other anti-consumer ideals.

We want to have our backers involved in the day-to-day development process in which they can see us develop the game and provide feedback along the way. We plan on having open development via our Discord server, Facebook, and Reddit in which our backers can voice their opinions and help us build an incredible open world action RPG.

Risks and challenges

We understand that there is a risk when developing any project. For the past two years, our dedicated and passionate team has been working to bring The Adventures Of Breadman to life. With our experience in the corporate software industry, were used to managing unforeseen problems but we are confident in our team's ability to quickly resolve these issues and work to avoid bumps in the road to success preemptively.

With months of meticulous planning, we have created a realistic budget that will allow us to meet milestones and bring our food-filled adventure to life. Along the way, we will be working hand in hand with our community to design and develop the experience we have in mind.
