Bread: References & Easter Eggs + Apology

As you might expect from such a simple game, Bread contains nearly zero references & Easter eggs. But not quite zero! It’s one. The total is one.

The opening video fades out, but what if I told you there’s more in the file? It’s even subtitled!

This video was made by Java Cake Games, believe it or not. Horrendous.

The items in the game — white flour, wholemeal flour, and water — are ingredients used to make bread that is neither 100% white nor wholemeal, such as 50/50 or 70% wholemeal. Obviously, this game does not perfectly replicate the bread-baking experience, as some important other important ingredients, namely yeast, are eerily absent.

We are deeply sorry for the unfortunate accident that occurred in our bakery yesterday. A pair of scissors accidentally fell into the bread dough and was baked into a loaf of bread. This was a rare and isolated incident that does not reflect our usual standards of quality and safety. We have removed the affected bread from our shelves and are taking measures to prevent this from happening again. We value your trust and satisfaction and we hope you will continue to enjoy our products.
