Essentially a rock-paper-scissors clone, the player has you a limited number of moves and has to pay money to keep playing as [[spoiler:Regis' dead wife, Vicky]].once it runs out. Either that, or wait exactly 1000 seconds (which counts down in real game time) to keep playing.

* WhiteAndGreyMorality: there is, strictly speaking, only one person who can truly be defined as gratuitously evil in the storyline, and he isn't a crucial part of the plot - indeed, he only gets a few lines. Every other negatively-slanted character is moved by various degrees of [[WellIntentionedExtremist extremism]] or is simply a mercenary.

'''''Technobabylon''''' is a {{Cyberpunk}} point-and-click {{adventure game}}. Taking place im the year 2087, in futuristic city of Newtown, the game follows three protagonists, and from their perspectives, gets a view from the ground of their society and how technology has altered the way people live and think:

The first playable character is the unemployed and agoraphobic Latha, who seems jaded beyond her years and prefers living her life (or mentally escaping to) the online world of Trance over spending any more time in the real world than she absolutely has to. When she’s nearly killed in an explosion in her apartment complex, she's forced to leave her sanctuary and try to figure out who's after her and why.

The second protagonist is world-weary, technophobic Doctor Charlie Regis. An experienced agent for city's police force. CEL is the extended arm of Central, the AI responsible for controlling the city, and Regis and his work partner are chasing an outlandish SerialKiller, known only as "the Mindjacker" for his reputation of ripping all of his victims' information directly from the brains, killing them in the process. Faced with blackmail and deception as he investigates the case, Regis soon finds himself embroiled in a strange case of cloak and daggers in Newtown's seedy underworld, and even Central doesn't appear to be entirely on the level any more.

Then there's Dr Max Lao, Regis's younger, headstrong and more optimistic partner in CEL. Max is the technology and computing expert, embracing technology and keeping up to date with it, unlike the technophobic Regis. Despite Regis' reputation for being difficult to work with, he and Max get along quite well and have developed a mutual trust and respect for each other. When Regis lands himself in trouble, Max takes it upon herself to find out the truth and help him out.
