June 11, 2021 – Indie physical game publisher 1Print Games, Neo Cab developer Chance Agency, and Neo Cab publisher Fellow Traveller are happy to announce the launch of Neo Cab Limited Edition for Nintendo Switch today.
Neo Cab is an emotional survival game about gig labor, tech disruption and the experience of being a driver-for-hire. You play as Lina Romero — a daring, empathetic young woman hustling to survive as one of the last human cab drivers in an autonomous world. Navigate the neon-drenched streets of Los Ojos from the Neo Cab map. Choose your passengers— and your words— wisely. You’ll need to balance your cash, star rating and emotional health to survive in this town.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled see our game released in this gorgeous physical edition. In the era of ephemeral digital games, there’s something downright cyberpunk about holding a Nintendo cartridge in my hands in 2021. Imagining all this team’s amazing art, code and writing, the entire world of Los Ojos, encoded onto a tiny ROM chip… it’s mind boggling,” says Patrick Ewing, Creative Director of Chance Agency.
“As a kid, I spent many an afternoon swept away in the worlds built by the wizards who created the NES, Super NES, GameCube and on and on. To see that beautiful red badge on a physical copy of our game is a tremendous honor. For it to be this game, Neo Cab, which our team poured their hearts and life experiences into is all the more rewarding. This game has struck a chord with our fans and I am thrilled they can now cherish a tactile keepsake of their journey through Los Ojos,” says Vincent Perea, Art Director of Neo Cab.
“Neo Cab is an indie gem with its fantastic storytelling of a near-future dystopian world,” says 1Print Games director Iggy. “I hope fans and gamers will look forward to unboxing the Neo Cab Limited Edition and playing the game!”
The Neo Cab Limited Edition is now available for USD34.99 via the 1Print Games website. Limited to 3000 units, the Neo Cab Limited Edition includes a copy of the Nintendo Switch game, inner cover artwork, Feelgrid Acrylic Keychain, Neo Cab Driver’s Manual, Neo Cab Numbered Authenticity Card, and Neo Cab Logo Sticker.
