'Technobabylon Part II' Mixes Futuristic Murder and Terrorism

Technobabylon Part II
Some say that the only certainties in the world are death and taxes, but if anyone's made a compelling game about the latter, well, we want to play it. Death, on the other hand, is everywhere in games. This week, we'll take a look at a few games about The End, from the poignant to the hilarious. And no zombie games, we promise.

'Technobabylon Part II' is a robust improvement on its predecessor. Besides asking you to talk people out of killing themselves, the game is an entertaining exercise in world-building and puzzle-solving. In stark contrast to the first game's single-room environment, 'Technobabylon Part II' takes you from the scene of an attempted suicide to a crime scene investigation, with stops for blackmail and terrorism in between. It's remarkably fleshed out, and while sometimes the overload of information and back story can leave you bewildered, you'll be even more impressed by how much care went into the experience. If you're jonesing for an adventure gaming fix (with surprisingly logical puzzles) or just want to explore a tantalizing sci-fi world, we highly recommend downloading it for your PC.
