City of Newton, 2087. CEL agents Charlie Regis and Max Lao are investigating a serial Mindjacker who is tapping into the neural wiring of seemingly ordinary citizens, stealing their knowledge and leaving them dead. An agoraphobic net addict named Latha Sesame might be the next target. But when Charlie's past comes back to haunt him, he and his partner find themselves on opposite sides of the law, with Latha's fate in the crossfire.

Blade Runner meets Police Quest in Technobabylon, a slick point & click adventure that blends past and future with its retro-styled pixel art and intense cyberpunk plotline. Technobabylon sets you loose in a world where 'wetware' wires people directly to the web, where the cerebral online Trance has replaced almost any need for human interaction, where the city's omnipresent AI, Central, has eyes on everyone and everything -- a world that could someday be ours.

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.
