Librarian RPG Book of Hours Announced
Cultist Simulator developer Weather Factory has announced its newest title, Book of Hours. The game is a combat-free RPG set in the 1920s, with players controlling the librarian of Hush House. The house hosts an ancient library of forbidden tomes that is regularly visited by the servants of gods and hidden orders. Players will need to keep the library appropriately stocked — studying, repairing, and purifying the books as needed — create their own indexing system, and decide whether to help those who come in search of the knowledge contained within the tomes.
Book of Hours is currently confirmed to be in development for PC and Mac. A Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, with a goal of £100,000, is scheduled to start on August 29, 2019, with the full game initially planned for launch in 2021.
