Fun lil game, but also bit frustraiting. Also noticed that sometimes day disappears from upper left. Also pretty sure one time same person loan book named brownbears and came to loan it on same day again, and game did not alloed me to click rule of one copy.
You are the new assistant librarian at the Library at the University of Esoteric and Occult Accademia. Your task is to in a “helpful” and “friendly” manner keep customers from taking out the books by referring to the (possibly cursed) Book of Library Rules.
"The entirety of the game is remembering a dozen rules and applying them, I didn't enjoy this at all."
This visual narrative / kafkaesque game is around 20 minutes long, features 7 quirky library patrons and will definitely ruin your afternoon. Don't make a cup of tea and don't cuddle up with your cat!
And please do not try to check out the Forbidden books.
The game features some crispy bugs and inconsistencies for added flavour! Patch for missing rules (increased difficulty) is on the way.

Thank you for filing these bugs 🐛 *jotting down notes*
(... don't let anyone know, but a few of the rules aren't enforced at all and a few of the checks aren't fully working)
