Taipei, Taiwan (April 7, 2023) - Neon Doctrine — a leading Southeast Asian game publisher of popular indie titles such as Yuppie Psycho, The Legend of Tianding, Lamentum, and the acclaimed SIMULACRA series — and developer Tanuki Game Studio are proud to announce that stealth platformer and graphic adventure game, The Library of Babel, has officially released today for Windows PC, Xbox One and Series X|S, PlayStation 4|5, and Nintendo Switch.
Inspired by Jorge Luis Borges’ short story of the same name, The Library of Babel welcomes you to a world 20,000 years after the extinction of humanity. Society is now run by advanced robots who know very little about their mythical creators. All is well and orderly, until the discovery of the Library which contains everything that has, is, and will ever be written — the perfect harbinger of chaos.
Seekers, it’s time to begin your murder investigation in the dystopic and post-human world of Babylon…
In The Library of Babel, Seeker protagonist Ludovik has been sent to Mesopotamia to investigate a murder case. As he arrives at the Colony's data mining outpost, a state of emergency is declared, severely hindering his progress. With the help of Lei, his contact within the Colony, Ludovik is able to slowly piece together the investigation and follow the trail of the murderer through the neighboring areas, meeting peculiar characters on his journey.
You will have to get to know the inhabitants of the jungle and explore its most dangerous recesses to resolve the obscure mystery that surrounds the sudden lockdown of the Library. In this vast and futuristic world inhabited by strange creatures and deadly enemies, utilize a mixture of stealth and wit to infiltrate the most guarded areas.
Key Features of The Library of Babel Include:
- Immersive 2D Babylon: An overgrown yet futuristic world with beautifully hand-drawn 2D environments
- Classic Systems: Dialogue and inventory management systems reminiscent of the Graphic Adventure games of the ’90s
- Dangerous Environment: Deadly obstacles and even deadlier enemies to avoid, as Ludovik prefers agility and stealth over violence
- Stealth Is King: Ludovik must maneuver around the terrain as quietly as possible, whether that’s climbing to new heights, or silently taking down enemies.
The Library of Babel is available now for purchase on Windows PC (and is Steam Deck Verified) via Steam and the Epic Games Store, Xbox One and Series X|S, PlayStation 4|5, and Nintendo Switch for $18.99 USD.
