The full title of this excellent sci-fi adventure game is Bureau of Astral Troubleshooters.
The fun you'll have playing this game begins right from the start when you choose your own agent with whom you want to experience the futuristic story. Ten different characters can be chosen, with different levels of skills, intelligence and other attributes. Your choice will have a direct influence on the outcome of the story which was a pretty cool feature for that time.
The story is about an evil guy (of course!) named Koshan who tries to monopolize the most important commodity of the future: Echiaton 21! And your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to prevent this from happening.
Everything can be done via mouse: talk to the many people you'll meet, examine the dozens of different locations and of course fight some bad guys. You can either fight like in an action game or choose to fight more RPG style – your choice!
The whole adventure is pretty complex, well presented and offers even some nice minigames. Plus it will always be a little different every time you start a new game!
