The fabled land of the Great Library, within whose twisted, treacherous halls lies the answer to every question ever asked, every doubt left unspoken and every problem yet unsolved.

Archives and repositories of everything known, unknown and forgotten. The cure to every disease, the key to every lock...

...the undoing to every mind.


Akashica is a procedurally generated interactive fiction game with strong cosmic horror themes.

Can you find your way out of the Great Library of myth? Is such a thing even possible? Or are you simply delaying the inevitable...?

I wasn’t expecting a Rogue-like text adventure!

I love the ideas that you used in this game, the whole worldbuilding made for the library, the diversity of the zones, the building of the index, books and items that boost our stats, etc. So creative! and in 3 days! impressive, nice job.


I loved this game! Out of that game jam this is the one that most stuck in my memory and I have shared with some of my friends :
