Anachronox is a 2001 third-person computer role-playing game produced by Tom Hall and the Dallas Ion Storm games studio. It offers gameplay in the style of console RPGs, such as Chrono Trigger and the Final Fantasy series. The game was built with a heavily modified version of the Quake II engine, rewritten chiefly to allow a wider color palette, emotive animations and facial expressions, and better lighting, particle, and camera effects.

Anachronox features a science fiction story influenced by cyberpunk, film noir, and quirky humor.The story begins as down-and-out private investigator Sylvester "Sly Boots" Bucelli looks for work in the slums of Anachronox, an alien planet near the hub of the galaxy's space-lanes. He travels to other planets and, amassing an unlikely group of friends, unravels a mystery that threatens the existence of the universe. The story features a theme of working through troublesome events of one's past.

Anachronox suffered a long and difficult development; the game ends on a major cliffhanger, and so much content was removed during production that Tom Hall planned to create a sequel. Critics enjoyed the game and awarded it high marks for its design and story, but its developers were disappointed with producer support, and Ion Storm closed its Dallas offices one month after the game's release. Anachronox developed a cult following, and in 2003, the game's cinematic director, Jake Hughes, spliced together sequences and cut scenes into a feature-length, award-winning machinima film.


Anachronox is a small planet floating inside a huge artificial sphere known as Sender One.Husks of futuristic cities shift on plates, connecting different parts of the planet. Inhabitants believe that diseased aliens were quarantined there eons ago, resulting in the name Anachronox (resulting from fusing anachronism and noxious, meaning "poison from the past").Northern Anachronox is clean and upscale, while southern Anachronox is crime-ridden and run-down; it's here that Boots runs his detective agency in the storage space above a bar.Humanity travels to different planets from Sender One, which had been the center of an alien transportation system enabling faster-than-light travel.Inbound and outbound traffic stop at Sender Station, an orbiting construct above Sender One with hotels and a red light district.Civilizations conduct business using the Canadian loonie,and several people collect "MysTech" (Mysterium Technology)—shards of rock with markings, believed to be dormant weapons or art pieces created by an extinct alien race.MysTech was first found three-hundred years ago, and is poorly understood, though avidly collected.

Other planets number Sunder, Hephaestus, Democratus, and Limbus. The galaxy's scientific community is headquartered on the temperate planet of Sunder, and people are only permitted to go there if they are sufficiently intelligent. Hephaestus is an important religious center. A mostly volcanic planet, Hephaestus hosts a town and temple complex of monks who study MysTech. Democratus is climatically similar to earth, with regions of desert, snow, forest, and prairie. Several populations of different sentient species exist on the surface, but the planet is ruled by a race of tall, thin humanoids with large craniums who dwell on a large mechanical ring constructed around the planet. This race is obsessed with the ideal of democracy, and though they possess incredible scientific and engineering knowledge, they are constantly bogged down by their own ineptitude and the frailties of the democratic process.Limbus is known as the "planet of death", as voyagers never return; its surface is arid and rocky, with sparse vegetation.A planet mentioned but not seen in the game is Krapton, home to superheroes and villains. Most of Krapton's human population has fled, tired of being constantly abducted and saved by warring superpeople.
