Focus Entertainment and Rundisc revealed that Chants Of Sennaar is part of the Official Selections of the 2023 Tribeca Games and Immersive Experience.

A demo is playable at the event until June 18, and the creators present the game in a special video premiered during the Tribeca Games Spotlight. Fall under the charm of gorgeous new screenshots and watch the Games Spotlight Presentation now to get to learn more about the inspirations behind Chants of Sennaar!

In this new video, the founders of Rundisc, the studio behind Chants of Sennaar, present the game and let us in on their philosophy and inspirations.

Based on the myth of Babel, Chants of Sennaar takes players on an enthralling journey, discovering a foreign site where five Peoples live divided, each speaking one of five different languages. Looking to reunite them, players will solve the puzzles of a fascinating world where ancient languages are both the lock and the key.

Exploring the city, getting to know and understand its inhabitants, using stealth and cunning to outwit the Guardians, the hero is an interpreter, a diplomat, a person using knowledge and wisdom to resolve conflicts rather than force. As such, Chants of Sennaar is an invitation to openness and tolerance.

The beautiful and delicate setting of the game mixes various artistic inspirations, starting with European comic artists from the 70s and 80s, such as Moebius, and spreading to a miscellany of building styles, from Brutalist to Mooresque and Indian architecture.

Key Features:

  • Explore a beautiful, fascinating world with a strong narrative inspired by the myth of Babel
  • Observe your environment and solve puzzles to unravel the mysteries around you
  • Use stealth and cunning to outwit the Guardians and cross the forbidden zones
  • Decipher ancient languages to restore the connections between the Peoples of the Tower

Chants Of Sennaar is coming to Nintendo Switch. PS4, Xbox One and PC (Steam) on September 5, 2023..
