Technobabylon cyberpunk adventure releases for PC on May 21; preorders start today

If you love cyberpunk or point & click adventure games — or, better yet, both! — you’ll be happy to hear that Wadjet Eye Games’ latest, Technobabylon, will be out for PC on May 21. Preorders start today at http://www.technobabylon-game.com/preorder, with lots of exclusive goodies.

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.

Preorder Goodies
Upon its May 21 release, Technobabylon will sell for $14.99 from the official website, Steam, and GOG. Between now and then, people who support the developer by preordering 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

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
