Technobabylon was originally planned as a free 8-episode game. By Episode 3, however, developer Technocrat realized that help would be needed in order to do the game justice. Ben Chandler, AGS veteran and pixel-wizard was brought onboard and, through him, Dave Gilbert of Wadjet Eye (the Blackwell series and Gemini Rue) became interested.

It was decided that Technobabylon would become a full-length, self-contained game and would no longer be freeware. The story and gameplay are being completely redone, and the game will integrate feedback from players of the freeware episodes.

Technobabylon is a retro-inspired, point-and-click dystopian cyberpunk adventure that takes place in the year 2087. Genetic engineering is the norm, the addictive Trance has replaced almost any need for human interaction, an omnipresent AI named Central powers the city and a police force called CEL spies on everyone. 

The game has three main characters who struggle to save themselves, each for a different reason. In the process, they discover a string of conspiracies that threatens not only their lives but everything they think they know.

Technobabylon will be released in Spring 2015 for PC. Mac and Linux versions will follow.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
