The game is based on the novel UBIK by Philip K. Dick. The player controls the main character from the book, called Joe Chip. He is working for a company called Runciter Associates in Los Angeles (in the year 2019), and his job is to protect companies against industrial spying from other companies. With genetic engineering and the development of replicants both sides have PSI-powers at hand to reach their targets.

In the game you lead, train and equip a squad of selected individuals (with various abilities, be it several kinds of weapon skills or PSI) through 3D-realtime rendered maps, where you sometimes can interact with your environment or even talk to some individuals. Connecting those missions are many rendered cinematic cutscenes.


UBIK Windows Patricia Conley, the object of your first mission and an important character in the novel.
UBIK Windows Joe Chip, the hero of the story. He seems pissed, probably because he's living in his office.
UBIK Windows You can have up to 5 people, including Joe, in the squad.
UBIK Windows Yes, Joe has a bed in the next room.

Some people might already have noticed the similarities between UBIK's setting and story and Blade Runner. This is no coincidence because both games base on novels by Philip K. Dick.
