We have exciting news!
We have made a new improved version of Babylon's Ark which is available as a hardware cartridge ("Space Collection", with three other games) for the Commodore 64 available at Bobr Games and Protovision!

You can now also play the new version here at itch.io!

The last humans have fled earth and live now in a big generation space ship. It is a big ship on a long journey, so eventually some components fail that the robot mechanics can't fix. Now it is your turn, cadet Samuel Fox, to solve the problems and to talk to the inhabitants of the ship which are... a rather unusal combination of people.

Are you up to the job?

Looks like a lot of fun, thanks.

It IS a lot of fun. I just completed it in about half an hour. Good humour (spotted references to Star Trek classic serie, Space Balls…), nice and clean graphic and functional sound. I love it for being playable, easy to get into and short, I would just inform the player about it, that’s why there is no save feature.

Now that you have the engine and character design, why don’t create a “season” with multiple episodes? Each one short and sweet like this.

I would pay for it ;-)


This looks great.

Took me 29 minutes, 5 seconds!

Thanks for making the improved version available here! Love this game from the Space Collection!

Wilfried Elmenreich hat zusammen mit Roman Werner und Martin Roscher ganze Arbeit geleistet und ein richtig tolles Adventure rausgebracht! 🕹

Auf meinem YouTube Kanal habe ich es im Rahmen der C64 Spielzeit die erweiterte Version vorgestellt. Schaut doch mal vorbei:


Tolles Video! Macht Lust, verrät aber nicht alles. Super Sache!

Ein richtig schönes Spiel! Ich mag Adventure sehr. Auf keinen Fall wollte ich in meinem Video zu viel verraten. Es soll ja spannend bleiben für all die, die das Spiel noch kaufen und spielen werden.

Hello Roman, 

I would like to talk about your game Babylon's Ark in my youtube channel: Commodore 64 Mania for the news! For that I would like to ask you some small questions about the development of the game!

I'm contacting you through your game's itch.io page because I couldn't find any other way to contact you, sorry about that! ;)

Would you be so kind as to contact me on my email address outrun69@gmail.com so that I can send you some questions? thanks to you !! :)

Hello Olivier. First of all, thanks a lot for your interest in our little space adventure game. We saw your comment at the time and frodewin, the creator of this itch.io page and coder of the game, tried to contact you by the mail address you provided. Maybe you did not expect someone else but me replying? Sorry that we missed the opportunity to give you more information about the full version we are currently working on. Let us know, in case you still would like to get your questions covered.

I love the graphics and sound, really nicely done. What is weird is that you can talk to so many people about things you haven’t heard of. I don’t understand why some doors are one-way.

Thank you. And yes, unfortunately the dialog conditions are not yet working as intended. The current download is a state we had after the 48h Game Jam and there was not enough time to play-test and fix. This will be addressed in the final version, so stay tuned :)

Fun little adventure game.
Excellent art & writing.
Great job!


Thank you for this nice comment. We are working on a more polished version right now. With updated graphics,  music & sound. I think it's on a good way.
