Virtual hands-on: Embark on a [gaming] career in the bakery industry
Bakery Simulator will be premiered on the Steam platform by Gaming Factory and Ultimate Games in October.
In 2020, it will also appear on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
The single-player game concentrates on working in a bakery and the timely delivery of bread to customers. According to the Polish creators, the player will have a lot of freedom in managing and developing the bakery.
“Our goal is to provide a high level of realism in Bakery Simulator,” said Michal Kaczmarek, CEO of Live Motion Games.
“This will be the whole production process of bread and other products. For example, baking machines and recipes are based on real equivalents. Helping us with the game is a consultant with 10 years of experience in the bakery industry.
“At the same time, however, some gameplay elements will be simplified to make the gameplay as attractive and rewarding as possible.”
Build your bakery
The gameplay takes place in a highly populated city situated in a mountain region and several nearby locations.
The player begins the game by selecting an appropriate location for the bakery and plans the use of the space. Thereafter, activities include learning new recipes, buying specialist machines and improving the production process.
The player will have the ability to conduct baking experiments to develop dozens of different breads using a variety of ingredients, as well as special offerings that are potentially more profitable.
Logistics, too, play an important part.
Baking bread is [actually] not that simple
“Baking is a specific industry. The finished products do not seem to be too complex but the entire production and logistics process behind baking bread is not at all simple. You must care about very many different elements, including, for example, the right selection and appropriate proportions of ingredients,” added Kaczmarek.
“We are creating a comprehensive simulator, which will certainly in this and other respects positively surprise the players. The gameplay will also be enriched by random elements, which of course, will additionally increase the replayability of the game.”
The game is being released in multiple languages, including English, Polish, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, Latin American Spanish, Korean, Russian and Turkish.
