Trailer footage reveals how you’ll sneak about the dark but vibrant environments, utilising inventory management to craft new items and find ways of overcoming obstacles. There’s even a cardboard box ala Metal Gear Solid, so you know the game has its heart in the right place. Footage pegs the game for an Autumn release, so there’s a little while to wait for now.
The Library of Babel, not to be mistaken with the 1941 Spanish short novel, is a 2D stealth platformer by Tanuki Game Studio that will be released later this year for PlayStation 5 and PS4. The dark 2D title, set 20,000 years after humanity’s extinction, is reported to be inspired by Apocalypse Now. The game does draw some cues from the novel, with the discovery of an all-knowing library fueling the storyline.
A press release reads: “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 murderer’s trail and unravels the mystery behind the Library’s sudden lockdown.” Are you interested?
