Description

We are an independent games studio based out of Austin, TX with a focus on jRPG-style games, tactics games, and 4x games. Because we want to make what we love.

History

Sully: A Very Serious RPG

Our first offering since our Fenix-like rebirth is Sully: A Very Serious RPG. Being released Summer 2013 for PC, Mac, Linux, and Playstation Mobile.

Sully is a lighthearted character-driven game where no worlds will be saved, and no airships will be flown.

It's not that kind of RPG.

This is the kind of RPG where you wrestle with the trials of growing up in a jRPG world. Where you save orphanages from being forclosed upon by winning prize money in a regatta. The kind of RPG where there'll be a dance-off between rival gangs of crabs and sharks. A game where you'll fly around in Sky Trains and Deep-Sea Hot-Air Balloons...

...both of which are way cooler than Airships.

Early history

Breadbrothers started by making freeware game demos in the VERGE-RPG engine in 1997, by the early 2000's Breadbrothers had released several titles to minimal success and, due to the founder needing grown up things like a salary and health care, went into hibernation as he surrendered to the halcyon call of being a Grown Up Engineer in Silicon Valley.

Amusingly, this happened just as the modern "indie scene" was waking up and people were finally making a living doing what we'd been attempting for years. Ah, timing.

Less-early history: The Dredmor-ening

One of the titles that Breadbrothers had mid-production at the time of it's mid-2000's operations halt was what would eventually become Dungeons of Dredmor.

When in 2011 it was released to critical success by Gaslamp Games, the long-dead games-making fire in our hearts was re-awakened.

Further emboldened by the relative success of Zeboyd Games (also originally from the VERGE-RPG community in the olden days), and our friends at Muteki Corp in releasing jRPGs on PC platforms with custom engines, we decided to throw our hats back into the ring and try, try again. Because giving up on something you love is no way to live.
