A fascinating world where ancient languages are both the lock and the key
In Chants of Sennaar, explore a fascinating universe inspired by the myth of Babel, and restore the links between Peoples. Immerse yourself in an enigmatic city home to a vast and mythical tower. Observe, listen, and decipher ancient languages. Solve enigmas and puzzles, play mini games, escape the scrutiny of the guards, and dodge the many traps in your way.
Guided by your notebook, translate each glyph you encounter by observing, exploring and talking to people. Use deduction to pave your way to the top of the Tower—a prodigious labyrinth full of mysteries to unveil.
Inspired by real languages, each dialect in Chants of Sennaar has its own rhythm, grammar, and syntax, for a compelling and fulfilling experience. Each People has a unique story to tell, encompassing folklore, culture, architectural styles, and their own technologies, making every level of the tower richly distinct. And ultimately forming an unforgettable journey, enriched by the audiovisual enchantment of a beautiful and colourful world inspired by European comic masterpieces and driven by a soul-stirring, lyrical soundtrack – that will be available for purchase on Steam at launch.
Chants of Sennaar‘s demo is available on all platforms to give players a first, mesmerizing impression of the immersive experience.
Chants of Sennaar is set to release on September 5 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows (through Steam).
