Steam also claimed that early downloaders could keep the game for free after July 7, while new players would have to pay after the deadline.  

Steam described a very straightforward gameplay guideline on its official website to give players an idea of what was happening in Cakey’s Bakery. According to Steam, the game takes you on a journey to rescue your little brother George before the ‘sweet and scary’ monsters have him for a snack. 

“To rescue him, you must face the challenges of Cakey and his crumbly companions: Frostina and Candy Bane.”


Steam pointed out that players should gather specific ingredients to bake ‘pies of destruction’ to attack and obliterate particular roaming monsters in Cakey’s Bakery. The PC gaming platform also warned players that the horror game was not a ‘walk in the park’ because one wrong move could turn players into the next ‘monster meal.’

While it is still early to make any drastic decisions, Steam promised the game was worth adding to any player’s library. Notably, 72% of the 302 reviewers on Steam so far gave this game a positive review.
