Have You Played… Technobabylon?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. I played sci-fi point and click adventure Technobabylon [official site] toward the tail end of last year, having saved it for a rainy day.

Free To Play: Demo Technobabylon Before It Launches

You've got a few days to wait before Technobabylon [official site] officially launches on Steam, but in the meantime publishers Wadjet Eye have sounded the Free Stuff klaxon and are offering a tasty morcel of demo for the price of a mere link click.

Electric Dreams: Technobabylon Is Blade Runner Meets Police Quest

Like many of the liberal college WASPs of my generation I am a dedicated and loyal follower of cyberpunk. First, a fact: The birth place of cyberpunk is my birth place too, which can only be a sign of my deep allegiance to West Coast Neuromancy.

Dystopian Pointy Clicks: Wadjet Announce Technobabylon

I've played enough games where handing control of our lives to an omnipresent AI leads to a horrible dystopia to know that, when one is inevitably created, I really shouldn't sign up. I will, of course. It'll sound exciting, I'll be curious, it'll have some lousy invitation system to ensure everyone's always talking about it, and I'll cave to peer pressure. Fifty years later, the…
