Babaliba is a game originally out on ZX Spectrum. In 2014 it was presented at the RetroMadrid in a beta version (check the video) still at the start. Then the development froze at a moment, but a message from one of the two developpers on the 10th February 2018 stated that the project is on the move once again and that news will be given as soon as possible.
A first teaser appeared on the 3th April on Twitter, and no it's not faked news. Toki is a work in progress by two frogs. It wwill be released first on Amstrad CPC 6128 (forget 64 Kb CPC without memory extension) then a bit later on CPC+.
