Neo Cab – find out what being a driver in the gig economy is all about

People play games to experience the lives of others. Sometimes this a big, strong hero, other times it’s a little less, macho. Neo Cab is an interesting concept game that puts you in the driver’s seat of the future Uber and tasks you with keeping your emotional head up.

Neo Cab is sort of like Cooking Mama or Theme Hospital in which you are tasked with, well, completing assigned tasks. There are no boss fights, just you and the goals. In this case, it’s picking up customers and taking them to their destinations while still keeping yourself from having an emotional break. You play Lina, an “uber” driver of the future. You deal with abusive and gross riders and have to keep it together.

This game concept of course to capture the emotional toil of living by means of the gig economy. The stills that have been released look very cool so if nothing else, play for the aesthetic. Neo Cab isn’t out yet. Keep an eye on the website for release dates.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
