'Aeruta' Is A Baking Action/RPG, Now Available In Early Access - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on May 17, 2024 @ 1:10 a.m. PDT

Set in a bakery full of sweet and savory breads, Aeruta is a management simulation and anime-style action RPG with colorful and adorable characters.

Do you love bread and sweets? If you do, Aeruta might be the perfect game for you! Experience Aeruta: a captivating fusion of dungeon delving and bakery management, offering adventure and culinary delight.

The story begins when during an adventure, Chaya, a fox girl aspiring to be a hero, accidentally breaks the oven at a bakery. Having to cover the debt for the damages, she has no choice but to start working there.

Though she has zero baking experience, Chaya helps out as the store’s cash register as well as embarking on adventures to gather baking ingredients. Where will Chaya’s odd story take her?

Set off on an adventure and discover new ingredients

It seems quite a few ingredients are missing from the pantry… You’ll be needing as many as possible to make lots of special recipes. Worry not, as all the ingredients you'll need are collectible from the various enemies ready to battle in your epic journey. For example, you can obtain Pain Pincers from crab monsters, Lucky Star Candies from Lucky Stars, and Fluffy Dumplings from Patty Kings.

But don’t let the monsters’ cute appearances fool you! Obtaining these special ingredients is no easy task. The monsters awaiting you are incredibly strong, and you may find yourself winded from battle and need a snack to regain health!

Aeruta is now available through Steam Early Access, and will remain so for six months to a year.

“The basics of the adventure and bakery management as well as the main core of the game are almost complete. In the current beta version, players can challenge the entirety of the first island stages, build a skill tree based on their battle preferences, fight three unique bosses, research bread, upgrade the town and bakery, meet friends, and at the end of the day… join a big festival!”

“In the official version of Aeruta, players can expect an even more rich and colorful gaming experience. The official release will include:

  • New adventures, more enemies, and more traps!
  • Research new and different types of breads
  • More elements to enrich the bakery's hours of operation
  • Special festivals/routine events
  • Mysterious help for the bakery...?
  • New friends, new events, and new stories
  • New weapons and a more complex skill tree
  • Badge system to personalize your fighting experience
  • Achievement system that braves must pursue throughout their lives
  • Most importantly... Find out if Chaya will be able to pass the hero test and become a true hero!

Of course, we will also make improvements and additions based on the feedback provided by players in the Early Access version to further optimize. We look forward to your feedback and sincerely hope that the official version will bring you an even more fulfilling and interesting adventure!”

Fill the town with the aroma of freshly baked bread

The ingredients obtained from Chaya are handed over to Effie, the baker and the owner of the bakery, who bakes the most remarkable breads in the world. Meanwhile, Chaya, who has no baking experience, is entrusted with restocking bread and working the cash register. Hit the directional buttons at the right time to complete customers’ transactions and increase sales. Earn enough money from sales, and you will soon repay your debt and repair Effie’s precious oven, filling the town with the aroma of fresh bread!

Embark on a journey with colorful friends

Surely it was fate that led Chaya to this town where she could become a hero! As the story progresses, a variety of characters will show up on the island to support Chaya's adventures and the bakery. Chaya is steadily on her way to becoming a hero by forming bonds with residents, such as Effie, the bear cub who is passionate about baking bread, and Bollio, a sheep who helped her repair Effie’s oven.

Join Chaya’s adventure and discover all of the out-of-this-world bread!
