Content Rating: Teen
City of Newton, 2087. 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. 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.

Although it sometimes falls victim to the constraints of its genre, Technobabylon more than makes up for it through sheer ambition. It's got a fascinating world that feels huge and far-reaching, a diverse set of interesting characters, and ingenious methods for shaking up traditional adventure game puzzle mechanics. It likely won't win over non-adventure game fans, but Technobabylon is an amazing game nonetheless.
Technobabylon's brilliantly absorbing world and frequently inspired puzzles make for a gripping - if unapologetically traditional - sci-fi adventure.
Technocrat knew exactly what it was doing when writing Technobabylon, using a lot of clever tools, both general and genre specific, to great use to craft a wonderful story with few lows, but many highs. The few lows it has are compensated for by very strong side characters that make players both laugh and further understand the world that keeps drawing them deeper and deeper in.
