Ludum Dare 42: The National Library of Geometric Impossibilities

“The National Library of Geometric Impossibilities” by Lewis Tolonen.

“Shelve books in a paradoxical library.”


Libraries are extremely magical places. They are filled with thousands of books and stories. That at some point the space for new books goes out is quite understandable. So what do you do? You look for deposits in other dimensions, of course!

It’s in a library like this that you work in this game, and it’s up to you to put the unsorted books back in their proper shelves. This is quite simple at the beginning, but suddenly geometric abnormalities start to appear. Corridors lead back to their beginning. Two interconnected passages take you to completely different levels, depending on your walking direction. And then there are all those combination codes that are not written down anywhere… Or maybe they are?

Every now and then, it is important to change one’s own perspective and draw the right conclusions in this outstanding puzzle game. A good combination gift as well as a topographical memory are definitely an advantage. Now get to work! >>PLAY
