Bread & Fred is a unique co-op title that brings a little twist to the challenging platforming genre. Victory and defeat are attached at the hip, and one penguin’s false move will mean the death of both. You will use in-game emotes to communicate and stay in sync or also play rock-paper-scissors to see who takes the lead in this cute yet challenging platformer. As you progress further in the game, new heights will bring new challenges for you. You will move up from simple snow to slippery ice, wind, and moving platforms.

You can use placeable checkpoints to relieve the sting of face-planting into the ice and use infinite jumps to return to the previously achieved heights. Bread & Fred is slated for release on May 23, 2023, on PC via Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG for $14.99. You can download and try out the free demo right now and take part in the challenge. If you already downloaded the demo earlier, make sure that you upgrade it to the latest build in order to access the new content.
