Talking points of your game.
As the librarian of Libraryland, you must protect the slumbering books from all noise. Hunt down the noisy bookworms and drop them in the drop-off boxes to silence them.
Fly Upwards: Hold Spacebar
Camera direction: Move Mouse
Move relative to camera direction: WASD or Arrow Keys
Grab bookworm: Swoop over a bookworm
Drop bookworm: Swoop over a drop-off box
Hint 1: The bookworms are afraid of heights and usually live on the ground or on the tops of only very low bookshelves.
Hint 2: The librarian can see the faint ripples in the air generated by the noisy bookworms' soundwaves when close enough.
Note: The library map and bookworm positions are randomly generated in each playthrough; some playthroughs will be easier/harder than others.
You can also just ignore the bookworms and just have a relaxing fly-around to enjoy the library's bizarre procedurally generated architecture.
Did you know... Each book is procedurally generated, and has a twin on the other side of each shelf. Each shelf is completely unique. There can be more than one hundred thousand books in the library. Thanks to a short draw distance (hence the fog), and custom GPU instanced shaders drastically reducing the draw calls, the game can run at a reasonable framerate on modern GPUs. I ran out of time, but the books would have been capable of jumping off the shelves because of the noise.
