Dead Toast Entertainment is not bound to any particular genre or platform and put a high value on creative freedom.Where it all started Dead Toast Entertainment began back in 2006, when Victor Agren needed a label to release his experimental Flash games under.I make this digression on game violence because I spent my entire playtime of My Friend Pedro desperately trying to squeeze some meaning from it; to grasp some kind of profound, thought-out perspective.But I can’t shake this interpretation: to enjoy this game, you must simply enjoy being the perpetrator of violence.It’s not uncommon for games as a medium to use extreme violence for the sake of comedy – we see examples like No More Heroes and Dead Rising from Japan and everything from Bulletstorm to Borderlands in the west – and it seems as if comedic hyperviolence is much more prevalent in games than any other medium.And into the mix we can then consider games like Hotline Miami and Overgrowth – games which portray violence as something dark and defamiliarising, as a last resort to ensure personal survival, and yet sickly, intoxicatingly gratifying.The game was very well received by those who played it, but it never managed reach any bigger audience.Things kicking off After the release of 'Nunchuck Charlie: A Love Story' Victor decided to carry on the development of a promising Flash game he had put on ice back in around 2007.
The game conjures an emotional state which reminded me of Hotline Miami: a confusion over whether the game is meant to be serious and comedic, and a personal introspection about whether game violence is cool, shocking, both, or neither.
After releasing several quirky and unusual titles Dead Toast Entertainment slowly started to establish itself.
But it wasn't until after Victor had worked at Media Molecule for about six years (on Little Big Planet, Little Big Planet 2 and Tearaway) Dead Toast Entertainment would be intended as a full time business.
