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.

PC Gamer - "An old school point-and-click adventure with a captivating story, strong characters, and a rich, well-realised sci-fi setting." 80%
Rock, Paper, Shotgun - "Set in a semi-dystopian future, the game features multiple protagonists exploring a tale of genetic engineering, AI overseers, mysterious mind-hacking murders, and overlapping online and offline worlds. It is, in that sense, delightfully pulp sci-fi. But it's also a delicate story of individuals, personal struggles, and most of all, a nuanced approach to complex future-worries."
Adventure Gamers - "Technobabylon is a beautiful, compelling game that fans of the cyberpunk genre will devour" 4/5
GameSpot - "When the going gets tough, the tough sometimes take a fishing pole and start fishing in a bloody Jacuzzi stuffed with a mutilated body. That's, at least, the lesson you learn in Technobabylon, a point-and-click adventure that's set in 2087 in a city where a powerful AI controls and observes all." 8/10

Another masterpiece from Wadjet Eye
If you’ve enjoyed any of their other games like Gemini Rue then you’re gonna love Technobabylon. Diverse cast, gripping storyline, excellent voice acting, beautiful artwork are some things you can expect. The characters are truly diverse: people from all racial backgrounds, men and women playing prominent roles, and even some prominent characters who are LGBT. Amazing job—Looking forward to your next point and click adventure!
An original, complex story is what makes this game stand out. Sometimes the solution to a puzzle is a little obscure, and that can get frustrating, but overall the game is well done with good voice acting and art work, and a long play time.
Delightful cyberpunk sci-fi adventure of year 2087
You will like this you like genres like Blade Runner, Matrix, Fifth Element (the movies) and System Shock (the game) -- and scifi in an 8-bit point-and-click adventure, this is lots of fun.
Great storyline for me. The first 30 seconds was confusing, then everything gradually made lots sense. Challenges at the right level -- not hairpullingly so -- I only infrequently needed to use (excellent) walkthrough guides.
All kinds of cyberpunk elements, things like memory cards with viruses, 3D printers, machine-human interfaces, virtual reality, scifi megacity, rundown dystopia views vs luxury utopia views, etc.
