I meant to play this sooner, but I really enjoyed it! Great mood and atmosphere and I liked the ending and story. Very well done.
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
"Something's wrong in the Library".
Liz's temple and safe place is threatened by the unknown, by ghosts from her own darkest dreams. She must go investigate. She's the Librarian, after all.
"The Librarian is a stunning adventure well worth embarking upon."
— Rock Paper Shotgun
"An inspired point and click set in a lightly sketched fantasy world full of strange practices, and supernatural creatures."
— PC Gamer
"The Librarian uses the structure of a game to evoke emotions and ideas the way a poem does with the structures of written language."
— The Verge
The Librarian is a very personal game whose production started a long time ago, much before Midnight Scenes, but it was shelved for years. Now it's finally finished and ready for you to play!
This game is completely free, but if you enjoyed it and would like to help with the creation of future titles, you can support my work on Patreon.

Awesome, what a beautiful little adventure.
Another awesome game as always! Great job! Puzzles were great, and atmosphere was quite suspensful! Made a video, hope you enjoy!
Really love this game! So far I really like the games coming from this developer! Keep up the awesome work! Would really love to see a full game of this!
Loved it you could rely feel the cold and dark forgotten world.and the puzzles are a lot
of fun do keep up the good work !!
I recently try this game and feel very satisfied to its clever puzzle and the overall chill but also warm ambiance in this platform adventure (The Walkhtrhrough Guide is also very welcomed when I was confused to find any stick to activate the strange machine :'D)
And can I send a regard of "Awww such a devoted mommy bird" to The Crow? >w<
This was such a good game! I love all of the games that you make and I look forward to playing more of them! Good job!
"The Librarian is a short point and click experience by Octavi Navarro beginning by means of ‘dark and story night’. As for what lurks in that night… it requires a bravery different than the kind needed to see through a whole cart of material being shelved properly."
I absolutely love it !
The pixelart is great, riddles are on point and the magical town when library is so important? Just awesome. I would love to see more stories with the Librarian because that universum has a potential. I am waiting for more ! :)
awesome!!! i LOVED Midnight Scenes i'm so excited to play this!! it looks so good~ ;w; congrats on the release and good luck and love for you and your next project!!!
Thank you Erika for your kind words! I'm glad you liked it :) I hope you enjoy The Librarian as well!
I only stumbled across this game now, surprisingly enough, and I really, really enjoyed playing it. The artstyle is amazing and the puzzles were really interesting. I can't wait to see your next project!
Another Great game, I really like the artstyle and puzzle of the game, can't wait for your next great game! :)
Love the pixelated artwork and the puzzles in this mysterious setting game. Some of the monsters like the the wolf that appear, its origins is post-apolitical almost?
A very good game, with riddles very well conducted and an atmosphere who is doing well with the universe. In short, a good job !
Amazing game Octavi Navarro!! I really can't wait for your next title! Keep up the fantastic work!
this looks beautiful! any chance there will be a Linux version?
A really beautiful game. We enjoyed the pixel art style very much.
Here is a short video we made while playing:Keep up the good work!!!
Thank you so much everyone for your great comments and videos! :D I don't have much time to answer all your posts (working full steam on the next short game! :) ), but I read and watch everything you post here and I love your awesome support!! Thank you guys! <3<3<3
Yo sorry for taking so long to upload the next final part of the gameplay but here it is
once again really loved the game puzzles and art
Gameply, graphics, and sound were all very good. Could have used more of a story though, dont quite understand what the point of going to the library even was. Didnt feel like anything was achieved or accomplished.
Super cool game! Just the right amount of spooky and cozy.
I'm not sure what I'm doing different than others. I have a knife & key, and entered the broken window to the library basement. Can't climb back out, and there's an empty spot on the bookcase that the character shrugs at.
That's weird. Don't you have a book in the inventory? The one you get right at the start of the game? If not, it might be a bug and I would advise you to restart the game. Sorry for the inconvenience. Did this happen after loading a saved game?
YO I just played your game and loved it...though the first part of the game play is mostly me wandering around saying curse words............maybe i should n´t have written this...................well hope ya enjoy
It was a lovely game indeed, the art is phenomenal and an interesting concept. I applaud you, Developer.
I LOVED IT! :D
That was such an amazing experience, I enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you so much for sharing your story and art with us. <3
This is game is stunning! It is beautiful in its pixel-styled graphics and makes you think when you solve the numerous puzzles it laid out for you. I would definitely play more of your games soon.
Short and sweet! It'd be cool if there was a mini series or something of the sort! Love it!
The Librarian is an atmospheric and very visually appealing adventure about figuring out what goes bump in the night. Crisp and moody audio works well to set the tone as events unfold, keeping the player wondering what could try to spook them next. And, of course, the art design is awesome, plopping you down in what looks almost like a haunted world, and giving hints of depth in some places, which I always love seeing in 2D style games. The puzzles are about what one would expect to see in a point'n'click game, with some requiring a little though, but none ever overstaying their welcome. Overall, this is a fine piece of work.Good job on this, dev. You make some nice pixels.
Very interesting and gorgeous game! Loved the atmosphere and the visuals, as well as some nice and intriguing puzzles, not too difficult, not too easy. A pleasure to play and experience :D
I made a video playing your game:if you want to check, best of luck for your future releases, cheers!
Mommy, look! I managed to solve puzzles on my own without looking at a walkthrough!
But honestly, I really enjoyed this game, even though it didn't scare me as much as I was expecting. Looks like I made the right choice following you.
Octavi, you've struck gold again! This is a delightful little point and click game that leaves the door open for more stories in this universe, or if not it's a great stand-alone game!
You amazed me with Midnight Scenes, and this did the same, keep up the amazing work! =)
Played this game ! Found it so cool , like the good old games by lucas art I played when young.
I contacted you on linked in : please answer ;-)
I'd really like to talk about games with you. See you soon and GG for your work ^^
Suprisingly hard game when you're four pints in; Bonnie, Tim and I had a fun time playing this quite artistic game.
It took me 2 episodes to do this game.
Lol, I'm not smart.
Such an amazing game! I enjoyed every second of it, it had so much meaning and the puzzles were perfectly made, i especially loved the part with the crow. Once again, amazing game, perfect storyline, loved it! Thanks so much keep up the great work!
