Technobabylon [RELEASED]
« on: 01 Jun 2014, 15:19 »
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!


Preorders now open at Wadjet Eye!

LAUNCH TRAILER









Based upon several of Technocrat Games' early projects, Technobabylon is a science-fiction mystery, inspired by the classics of speculative literature.  Both a remake of the original three parts released in 2010/2011, and a continuation of the story over eight further chapters, the art talents of Ben Chandler (ThreeOhFour) and Ivan Ulyanov (Ilyich) illustrate a world coming to terms with cyberpunk lifestyles redefining what it means to be human. Nathan Pinard, audio artist for Gemini Rue, lends his musical talent to the project for a suitably atmospheric score.

The completed project will be commercial, and we have a delightful arrangement with Dave Gilbert and Wadjet Eye!

Awesome! I really enjoyed the three Technobabylon episodes and this looks to be a big step forwards in overall quality. I foresee great success and lots of up-the-spine chills for this one.

Also, this is my favorite part of science fiction.

Looking forward to hearing how it'll sound, too! Gemini Rue had a great soundtrack.

With all this outside involvement, Technobabylon is looking a whole lot better than if it was just me doing it. It took other people to make it look how I imagined it! :-D

It was that impressive presentation at AdventureX that encouraged me to offer James a publishing deal. :) So the conference has definitely been a Great Thing.

Getting on board with Wadjet Eye was, for me, the "unrealistic best-case outcome" from showing things off at AdventureX. Maybe I'll aim for Telltale with the next one!
