“TAXI JOURNEY is a cross between an adventure game and a platformer set in a universe that combines charm, humor and mystery.”
“Taxi Journey is an original puzzle/adventure game in a universe that combines charm, humor and mystery. It takes inspiration from games such as Limbo or Machinarium but comes up with a very unique universe and original gameplay features.”
Taxi Journey was a unsuccessful Kickstarter project by Lexis Numérique in 2013, and their final project after multiple other difficulties for the company.
On its second attempt, It was planned for Wii U and Windows with stretch goals for Mac/Liniux, iOS/Android, PlayStation Vita, PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.
Gino, a big guy who doesn't say much, is a rather odd taxi driver. Having no money, he can only afford a car without an engine and without a passenger seat so he has to carry his clients on his back and pedal instead of drive.
It all begins when he encounters Zoe, a strange little girl with mysterious powers, who takes him to strange and distant lands where they meet a host of loveable and funny characters as well as some rather disturbing ones who will do anything to stop them.
