Toast Time will be available worldwide on  Steam on August 27th, at 9am PDT. It will be priced at $4.99 USD / £3.99 GBP / €4.99 EUR. There will be a launch sale of 10%-off for the first week. Imagine how much bread you could get with those savings!

Additionally, Force Of Habit will be at Insomnia52 (Coventry, UK) and at PAX Prime (Seattle, WA, USA) for interviews, demonstrations and pints.

Game Description:

Toast Time is a throwback to the golden age of video games where old-school homebrew titles fused arcade action with a distinctly British sense of humour. 

Inter-dimensional time-blob beasties have sailed the cosmos in pursuit of spare time, and now they've found it, tasted it, on an idyllic Monday morning. 

Assume the role of TERRY (toast-ejecting recoil & reload system), a humble and solitary toaster with an uncontrollable love for English breakfasts, hats and scheduling. 

Tap to launch toast, crumpets and magnitudes of other breakfast paraphernalia at the beasties. Bounce around and crush them with your hot metallic mass. Tip over bins, and use the environments to your advantage. Drink a little coffee and go a little crazy. Do everything it takes to defend toast time – you are Monday morning's final hope. Have your toast and eat it.
