A cross between Left 4 Dead and a whole lot of bread, you’ll have to beat back the zombie gingerbread horde in this puntastic VR shooter. Once you strap on the HTC Vive, you’ll have a bakery-themed arsenal at your disposal – among them, the crescaber and the T.O.A.S.T.E.R. – in order to stop the demonic Confection insurrection.

Night of the Living Bread: Dough Rising was originally going to be a top-down 2D shooter featuring zombie gingerbread men and puns galore. But on a fateful trip to Denny’s between friends, another DigiPen dev group working on a VR project offered to combine the two ideas into one ambitious senior project, resulting in Dough Rising.
