A point-and-click adventure set in a dystopian future with a hero whose life has obvious parallels to John from Brave New World. As Robert Foster, you are the son of citizens of the city, but you have been raised by a tribe that lives in the wilderness. Security agents kidnap you and return you to the city, but you manage to escape following a helicopter crash. With only your faithful sidekick, a robot named Joey, you must escape the city and find out why you were brought here. The graphics and sound are quite good in this immersive world, and interaction with the people who live in it is ingenious and full of witty dialog. It takes a lot of thinking to solve some of the puzzles. The CD-ROM version of the game replaces the text with voice and adds cut scenes that are drawn like comic books.
