Neo Cab Trailer - PC Gaming Show 2018
Oct 14, 2019Despite its dark themes, there is a quirky charm in its several dialogues and the game does a fine job of debating relevant societal issues. If you’re into visual novels, then you’re used to doing lots of reading and advancing through simple interactions, which is exactly what Neo Cab offers. As a branching narrative game, your choices are perceived by the system. It feels good to have an impact on the story, but the focus here is clearly on connecting with people and affecting their lives. After all, one could say “Isn’t that what life is all about?”
Oct 3, 2019Neo Cab’s malevolent tech-noir is a vehicle for exploring, and ultimately surviving, the tenacity of its passengers and the ambivalence of its driver. As a narrative adventure Neo Cab is full of conflicted, enigmatic, and sophisticated characters all vying for validation in a tortured world. As an opaque lens on social responsibility and morality, it’s as distressing as it is compulsive. Neo Cab’s tech-addled dystopia functions a travelogue to the pain and purpose of being human.

TheThis game has a really pleasing art and game style and the quirky conversations you have with your passengers are surprisingly engaging. The trick is in choosing the most appropriate response for each passenger in order to get a good rating for the trip versus other considerations such as your mood (displayed on your 'feelgrid') which can limit your options or play to your advantage
My play time was about 6.5 hours on my first run through
Just finished my second play through in 6 hours and got an alternate ending from making a variety of different choices.
Choices you make in the game will influence conversations later on
I really like this game and the passenger characters (even the not so nice or difficult ones)
Would definitely play a sequel… Expand
May 7, 2021This game was a random suggestion for me in Steam. Well, thanks Steam!
Pros.: - The music. Some tracks are so good I had to find them. -This game was a random suggestion for me in Steam. Well, thanks Steam!
- The music. Some tracks are so good I had to find them.
- Choices. You can't take everyone in your cab. So, you have to choose.
- Story. The story is simple but it's quite well looped. For the taxi driver talking simulator it's still quite well looped.
- The plotlines are predictable.
- Some choices and the results are unclear. Not really cons but leaves a bitter aftertaste.
In general, I really recommend this game for all neon, futuristic, cyberpunkish lovers.… Expand

However, some of the mechanics (namely the FeelsGrid system and the entire cab system) are underdeveloped.
It gets worse when by reaching the end you are forced down a path that doesn't always seem logical with your choices in-game up to that point, as if the ending is dictated solely on the last conversation you have and not the entire experience.
The FeelsGrid system is mostly infuriating as most of the time you will be given 3 or even 4 conversation choices but the game refuses to let you pick the choices you want to and forces you down a path because of your character's emotional state. A better option would have been to not show the other choices as options and instead limit the number of choices to the one you are actually allowed to take.
The mechanics of the cab system work fine but could have been better developped. You are allowed a maximum of 3 fare per night but are also allowed to go to bed early after 2 rides. As far as I can tell it's pointless to go to bed early as you mostly end up shortening the lenght of the game. Of course you could tank your star rating by picking up a bad fare or could end up having to spend more money and potentially leaving you short changed. However, I never came close to running out of money and the rating system is very easy to recover if you end up getting a few bad reviews. I would have preferred a system where if you get to bed early, you get to complete 1 extra ride the next day. The rides are where the game shines the most and it's a shame that you end up missing on many new characters along the way by being limited to only 3. Especially since most of the characters have follow up stories on following nights, so you end up mostly picking the same passengers over and over to get to know more about them (and thus missing out on potential new stories from new characters).
The game is also fairly short (at around 4h) but thankfully the price point is also on the lower side (about 15$).
Finally, very few bugs, some popping issues due to a low draw distance (probably to accommodate an iOS/Android release).
All in all, it is a good product but flawed for sure. If you are a fan of game set in a cyberpunk-y universe, then definitely check it out.… Expand

But the story, while engaging at first, is overall pretty weak and the ending is underwhelming.
The emotion-bracelet which limits responses that can be made during conversation is a stupid game mechanic. Other things (selecting hotels to sleep in, customer ratings, bank account) aren't bad, but because the game is about 5 hours long they're pretty much pointless. Also, I'd appreciate free drive mode because limit of only 3 passengers per night causes that lots of characters and conversations are missed.
