Monday 24th November 2014, Bristol, UK – Force Of Habit have updated their appetizing action-arcade arena shooter & breakfast-defense mash-up Toast Time to release it for SteamOS & Linux today.

Toast Time was praised at launch for it’s innovative movement mechanics and it’s zany, over-the-top humour spread throughout. It has been available worldwide on Steam (for PC & Mac) since August, on iOS since February and on Android since September 2013.

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.
