The Library of Babel

Join Ludovik in a 2D Stealth Platformer and Graphic Adventure, as he explores the jungles of a futuristic Babylon to discover the secret behind the Library of Babel’s sudden lockdown and the mysteries behind their mythical creators.

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.
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.

A Strange Future

Featuring a world full of vast jungles, abandoned temples, and plentiful cybernetic inhabitants to interact with, The Library of Babel promises both a thrilling adventure full of danger and intrigue, and a thoughtful, atmospheric tale of how we consider infinity.


• 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.
• Dialogue and Inventory management systems reminiscent of the Graphic Adventure games of the 90’s.
• A moody, philosophical science fiction story inspired by The Library of Babel and Apocalypse Now.

8.5 / 10
The Library of Babel has a solid setup and some nice narrative moments. It’s well presented and the central quest is good enough to keep players engaged. The title’s problem is that it struggles to make gameplay fun or varied.
