Technobabylon Trailer Takes A Look At A Playable Character

Technobabylon has received a trailer.  This upcoming adventure by Wadjet Eye Games has three playable characters. One of them, Latha Sesame, is featured in this trailer. Latha is a jobless agoraphobe more comfortable in cyberspace than the outside world. When she unwittingly becomes an assassination target, she's forced to face the dangers of "meatspace" and survive a fate that has invisibly ruled her entire life.

Technobabylon takes place in a dystopian cyberpunk future where 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, with its all-seeing CEL police force keeping tabs on everyone.  It's scheduled to be released in Spring 2015.
