Have you ever stopped to wonder or ask how your Rideshare Driver’s day is going. I have, but maybe you haven’t. Fellow Traveller and Chance Agency are excited to announce an emotional survival game of rideshare driving in an AI-driven world. Neo Cab hits PC and Nintendo Switch (PC: 14.99 USD, Switch: 19.99 USD) on October 3rd, 2019, and pre-orders are available now. There is also a demo available on both platforms to try.
Neo Cab is an emotional survival game with a narrative focus. Players are challenged to stay human in a world overrun by automation. Lina is one of the last human rideshare drivers, and your only lifeline has gone missing. With no money, and nowhere to stay, all you can do is keep driving. Using the Neo Cab app, players navigate the city, choose passengers, and engage with them to learn their stories. Perhaps it will uncover some of your own truths.
Neo Cab Creative Lead Patrick Ewing is eager to confront the possible perils of our automated future saying:
“What are the merits of personal, human service and why are sterile, automated interactions often presented as a core part of utopia? In Neo Cab, Lina is one of the last human drivers, and so those who get into her cab are in need of the human touch! Some of her passengers will enjoy having a conversation while they get from Point A to Point B. Others might prefer that automated utopia, and see Lina as just another node in the service mesh of automated capitalism.”
