'Technobabylon' Gets Release Date, Pre-Order Incentives - Trailer

by Rainier on April 29, 2015 @ 11:19 a.m. PDT

Technobabylon is a retro-style, point & click cyberpunk adventure game.

Technobabylon takes place in a dystopian cyberpunk future where genetic engineering is the norm, the addictive Trance has replaced almost any need for human interaction, and an omnipresent AI named Central powers the city. Its all-seeing CEL police force keeps tabs on everyone... including three people who are about to meet their maker.

Technobabylon started out as a series of 8 planned freeware episodes (of which 3 were released) by indie developer James Dearden. With help from Wadjet Eye Games (creator of the Blackwell mystery games, publisher of Gemini Rue), Technobabylon's story and gameplay have been revamped for its commercial release, with player feedback from the freeware episodes integrated. The game will also feature new pixel art by Ben Chandler and professional voice acting.

Pre-order Goodies

Upon its release, Technobabylon will sell for $14.99 from the official website, Steam, and GOG. Between now and then, people who support the developer by pre-ordering directly will get:

  • Digital soundtrack -- an hour of cyberpunk tunes composed by Gemini Rue's Nathan Allen Pinard
  • Behind-the-scenes video of voiceover recording sessions
  • Production art gallery including concept art, 3D models, full-size character portraits, and more
  • The Technobabylon Codex -- PDF booklet providing backstory and context for the game's vast cyberpunk world
  • Exclusive desktop wallpaper
  • DRM-free game download or Steam key
