Publisher Neon Doctrine and developer Tanuki Game Studio announced: The Library of Babylona stealth platformer coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam in 2022.
Here’s an overview of the game, via the Steam page:
Inspired by Jorge Luis Borjes’ short story of the same name, The Library of Babylon welcomes you to a world 20,000 years after the extinction of humanity. The world is now run by advanced robots, who know very little about their mythical creators. All is well and orderly in a society run by robots, until the discovery of a library containing everything that has been, is, and will ever be written – the perfect harbinger of chaos.
You play as Ludovik, a Seeker, sent to investigate a murder case in Babylon. When a state of emergency is suddenly declared, Ludovik finds himself in increasingly dangerous territory as he follows the trail of the killer and unravels the mystery behind the library’s sudden lockdown.
With a world full of vast jungles, abandoned temples and abundant cybernetic inhabitants to interact with, The Library of Babylon promises both a thrilling adventure full of danger and intrigue as well as a thoughtful, atmospheric story of how we view infinity.
Most important features:
- An overgrown yet futuristic world with beautifully hand-drawn 2D environments.
- Deadly obstacles and even deadlier enemies to avoid as Ludovik prefers agility and stealth over violence.
- Dialog and inventory management systems reminiscent of the graphic adventure games of the 90s.
- A moody, philosophical science fiction story inspired by The Library of Babylon and Apocalypse Now†
