Hey! You! Humanoids! Would you like a speaking role in upcoming-mega-hit Technobabylon? Well, the main acting's already been recorded, and that was handled in a professional manner by Dave Gilbert (studio, and everything). So, unless you live in New York and have a time machine, that's not an option. Fret not though, we have another plan!

Several stages of the game require using a contact terminal - the phones of the future. Only a couple of contacts need to be used for the plot, but it'd be unrealistic to have an empty address-book. Then again, it'd be silly to have a whole bunch of people record a couple of sentences to use as dozens of contacts in a list...wouldn't it?

Good thing my middle name's "Silly", then.

The long and short of it: We have a telephone address-book in the game with a lot of extras who might need to pick up the phone. Therefore, we need people to answer these fictional phones and those people could be you, if you fancy the opportunity to be in the game! It's the future, and someone's randomly called your future-phone. What answer are they going to get?

Are you vaguely interested in having a few lines in Technobabylon? Well then, drop a line to for a more in-depth explanation of what we need. Alternatively, can you think of anyone else who'd like a go at it? Point them in this direction, then!

AdventureX 2014

Another year, another AdventureX! I'm now four-for-four, having managed to attend them all since they started in a loft in Didcot. It was a delightful show, and I'm very glad to have met so many folks in the adventure games community - some for the first time, some as a repeat occurance!

Also delighted to have presented Technobabylon to those in attendance. Hopefully I succeeded in channelling my public-speaking skills from pre-school-teaching days, and sold the concept to everyone there. Come to think of it, how could one fail to sell cyberpunk? That'd just be embarassing.

Adventure Treff were filming the event, so they should have footage up within the next few days. Danke schoen!
