Would-be seekers can begin their murder investigation in the world of Babylon in The Library of Babel open beta demo, available now ahead of the full game’s worldwide release.
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. 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 that contains everything that has, is, and will ever be written — the perfect harbinger of chaos.
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 jungle’s inhabitants 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, you will have to use a mixture of stealth and wit to infiltrate the most guarded areas.
- 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
