Deep within the computer, a library grows.

Wander through a gentle garden of words, an endless oasis of serenity. Discover the mumblings and memories of other storytellers, and be inspired to leave your own.


Best encountered over a warm mug of coffee (with your fondest cassette mix-tape ♫ ♪) and snuggled up on a cold winters morning, the Library Of Babble is an experimental prototype designed around smaller acts of storytelling and prose, and the wish for  more-intimate spaces of shared asynchronous communication.




            write small stories as you wander, and discover stories written by others


 In many ways, this game is a small recollection of my earliest internet moments. Of snuggling away to discover the sometimes strange and surreal communities that grew there, and how distant yet intimate it all still felt. 

So on that small footnote, thanks so much for taking the time to consider my game, and here's simply wishing you all the warmest on your journey

Sorry for my russian, but....
Это просто замечательная вещь. Мне немного грустно, что я не нашёл ни одной чужой записи, но оставил парочку своих.

Тем не менее, огромное спасибо Вам, за создание этого
