Flash Tuesday Baguette Fun
October 12, 2021 2:11 PM   Subscribe

A Very Long Baguette [SLIO] is a game involving a very long baguette. A 16ft baguette to be precise. You, or you and a friend, must deliver it from the kitchen to the customer, going through the necessarily unnecessarily maze-like restaurant.

This is the best optionally two-player casual browser game I've seen in many many years. Short, but sweet.

I have played the real-life version of this! Only instead of a restaurant, we had a staircase, and instead of a baguette, a fold-out couch.

NB: if it seems impossible, try heeding the developer's recommendation to play it full-screen: as yet unresolved clipping issues at the edges of the maze make not doing so a de facto Hard Mode.

That was quite a pain.

An embarrassingly bad 11:06 - because I was playing one player and my hand eye coordination went well out the window the moment the chefs switched ends....

Also
- The end should really be the customer saying "Oh...I asked for the whole wheat baguette, can I switch?" and sending you back.
- No one should eat the baguette I delivered - it rubbed up against everything and everyone in that restaurant

You can play a really big real life version of this if you work in wind turbine construction. Planning to get the blades to often out of the way windy places is a major element of planning and involves quite a bit of logistics. It isn't always successful.

10:47, because it's first time and I'm sleepy. Unlike a lot of collision detection games this one didn't aggravate too much. Interacting with obstacles by and large made sense, and kept the flow of the game. Good little diversion.

I am already a very good parallel parker, thank you.

This is an unsolved problem in mathematics!

4:32... and I think it would be fun with two people, but my partner can barely handle the first few levels of Overcooked, so probably not a good idea.

My boyfriend and his brother do an awful lot of couch and long table moving in their jobs, and there is no way I am going to let them watch me play this game.

I got stuck! Stupid customers, getting in the way of my very long baguette.

I'd love to play this with my significant other but she finds timers stressful.

Fun little game.

To follow up biffa's wind turbine transportation disaster, here's one where they do it right.
