Description of your game - Minimum 50 words, maximum 200 words
"You have been hired to steal information out of an ancient library. Sounds easy, except that:
- You didn't prepare. You didn't study the language of the library, and the book contents are completely unreadable for you
- You REALLY didn't prepare. The only equipment you thought to bring was your packed lunch (4 strawberries)
- There are vicious giant owls guarding the library..."

This game was made in my "spare" time (with maybe a little less sleep than usual) over two weekends and one week. It started out with the thought: "I want to make a bookshelf which fills with a random assortment of books", and the rest of the game ideas slowly developed from there.

The game was created using MonoGame as the framework, Photoshop for art, and Audacity for the sound effects. It consumed 70 hours over a week of my life, but I'm proud of the result and hope people get enjoyment out of playing!
