Cyberpunk adventure game Technobabylon coming to iOS on August 16
Wadjet Eye Games, one of the few studios still making great adventure games, has just announced that its cyberpunk title Technobabylon is coming to iPhone and iPad devices this month.
Starting August 16, fans of the adventure genre will be able to download Technobabylon via App Store. According to developer Wadjet Eye Games, since its launch back in 2015, Technobabylon has become one of its best selling and best-reviewed games.
Adventure games are first about the atmosphere and story, but puzzles are an important aspect as well. Technobabylon has them all covered since Wadjet Eye Games presents it as a Blade Runner meets Police Quest point & click adventure.
Visually, Technobabylon features retro-styled pixel art, so if you can't stand pixelated graphics, you might want to skip this one, although you'll be missing an “intense cyberpunk plotline” as well.
The story in Technobabylon takes place in the City of Newton, in the year 2087. The game sets you loose in an amazing world where “wetware” wires people directly to the web, where the cerebral online Trance has replaced almost any need for human interaction.
You'll be investigating a serial Mindjacker who is hijacking the neural wiring of what appear to be normal people. He steals their knowledge and ultimately kills them. It's up to you to find out who's the person behind that dreaded nickname and what drives him to commit those atrocious murders.
