If you have fond memories of the Crazy Taxi games, check out the teaser for Taxi Chaos. It looks like the game is taking a lot of inspiration from the classic franchise. You’ll pick up passengers and deliver them to a destination across a large area inspired by New York City. As you can see from the teaser, this is not a cabbie sim. You can find shortcuts (such as across buildings), drift around corners, and take big jumps to deliver people to their destinations.
There are a range of autos for you to use when you are trying to earn a little cash. My info mentions a muscle car, a supercar, and a Japanese car that would make the Fast and Furious crew drool. You can unlock more throughout the game, and it should add a little spicey variety (along with being able to drive through the park and jump over other cars on the road) to your people-hauling adventures.
Taxi Chaos is picking up fares on February 23rd, and it’s going to be a physical and digital release. It’s being developed by Team6 Game Studios and published by Lion Castle. I want to see more before I increase the hype-o-meter, but an arcade-y, updated version of Crazy Taxi sounds like fun.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
