Technobabylon was created using the AGS editor and needs the AGS engine to run.
The version of AGS packaged with the game on GOG is a few years old and the engine has since been updated and improved quite a bit. Using the newer version solved all technical problems I had with the game.

To use the latest version with the game, follow these instructions:
-----
01. Download the latest version here. Choose the "Installer Free Download".
02. Extract the downloaded archive and copy only the file "acwin.exe" to the game's main folder.
03. Run the executable with the parameter "--setup". You can do this by starting the game via a shortcut: right-click on "acwin.exe" and choose "Create shortcut". Then open the shortcut's properties and add "--setup" to the field "Target". The path should look like this: "[...]\acwin.exe --setup". Run the shortcut.
04. You can now configure the engine to your liking, though defaults should be fine. If you have problems with correct scaling in fullscreen mode, choose the option "Stretch, preserving aspect ratio".
05. Enjoy the game.

Should you still have problems with mouse acceleration, follow these instructions:
-----
01. Go to the game's main installation folder.
02. Create a new file named "allegro.cfg".
03. Place the following contents into the file:
[mouse]
mouse_accel_factor=0

These instructions have been tested with Wine on Linux, which is how I play the game.

Superb, thanks!
Thank you!
Cheers m8. I play on my TV so with the PC resolutions it would sometimes have problems with fullscreen in this game. Your guide fixed it for me. Nice one.
Thanks!
