About this game## THIS VERSION NO LONGER AVAILABLE! ##
## Full version of Technobabylon coming from Wadjet Eye games in March/April 2015 ##
A jobless agoraphobe, addicted to the man-made worlds of a distant descendant of the internet, has become targeted for assassination by forces beyond her understanding. With nobody she could really call an enemy or a friend, she must face the dangers of "meatspace", and survive a conspiracy that has invisibly ruled her entire life.
An agent of the city's all-seeing secret police finds himself blackmailed with the lives of the unborn children of his long-dead wife. Pushed to the limits by his deceit and his past, how far is he willing to go to save his legacy?
Follow their lives as a string of catastrophes threatens not only themselves, but everything they think they know about the city!

AGS Panel Review
"An inventive twist on the 'escape the room' genre, Technobabylon shows us a dystopian future where people prefer to live their lives in virtual reality rather than accept their own and work to better themselves. While technically a one room game, it manages to offer multiple puzzles both in and out of reality and pleasant visuals reminiscent of older adventure games."
A full length point and click adventure, a la Kings Quest, would definetely be something I would pay full retail game price for.
Immensely entertaining and engrossing despite the length. 5/5
Only minor critique would be some descriptions assumed you'd examined something else before-hand, but didn't detract. Oh and nice mild humour. Not too in-your-face. Just the way I like it. Going to play part 2 now. Well worth half an hour of your day
I can't wait for the next episode.
Reccomended, I hope to see episode II as soon as possible.
Graphics and animations are good, puzzles also and there is just the right amount of background information to make you interested in the game world without being too wordy or involved.
On the flip side it shows lack of polish in the UI. The handling of the mouse actions was the opposite to the norm, which confused me to no end, and the inventory management required too much clicking and hovering: it should have been simpler. It's not a bad idea to copy the best characteristics of the best games.
I just wish this was either a stand-alone title or there was a better teasing as to what is to come in the next episode.
