Conundrum will be an adventure-puzzle game, set in a mysterious Victorian-style library, that exists outside of time. Players will play as Cody Pieterson, a 24 year old man from the near future, who has become trapped inside the library. Through a combination of putting books back into their correct shelf location, and piecing together then inputting codes, players will work their way to the top floor of the library to escape.
