The Forever Labyrinth: A gaming masterpiece by Inkle and Google Arts & Culture

The narrative geniuses at inkle, renowned for their recent three IGF nominations for A Highland Song, have joined forces with Google Arts & Culture to introduce a new free browser-based game, The Forever Labyrinth. This innovative game is constructed from an amalgamation of art from around the globe and across history.

The Forever Labyrinth thrusts players into an eternal maze - a motley assortment of halls, rooms, clifftops, and cellars, each brimming with the collective works of humanity. The player's quest is to find their friend, Professor Sheldrake, who is lost within these labyrinthine walls. The game challenges players to decipher the secrets of the Labyrinth and unravel the mystery of the figure leaving cryptic messages. The ultimate question remains - can the Labyrinth and the player survive the impending collapse?

Developed by inkle, creators of critically acclaimed narrative games such as 80 Days, Heaven's Vault, and Overboard!, The Forever Labyrinth is a replayable rogue-like adventure. A single run-through will take about twenty minutes, but to uncover all the game's secrets, players will need to revisit the game multiple times. The game invites players to explore the Labyrinth room by room, and even journey through the paintings adorning the walls.

Check out the trailer here:

The game's art, which fills the Labyrinth's walls, is a diverse mix of classic and modern, well-known and obscure, beautiful and bizarre, sourced from the collections of renowned museums. This collaboration with Google Arts & Culture, who partner with over 3,000 cultural institutions from more than 80 countries, aims to make the world's art and culture accessible and engaging to all. Google Arts & Culture continues to seek innovative ways to tell stories that connect people to culture, and The Forever Labyrinth is their latest endeavor.
