This game has potential. I'm a big fan of DOS games, so this was a surprise find. Keep up the awesome work!
Death Taxi 3000
A downloadable game for Windows and Linux
Death Taxi 3000 is a retro arcade racer inspired by Crazy Taxi, Quarantine and the whole Synthwave aesthetic.
Built to the specifications of late-era DOS games from the mid 1990s, it features pseudo-3D graphics done by a custom raycaster engine, displayed in a carefully crafted 256-color palette, plus a digital CD-audio soundtrack and sound effects achieved through realtime FM synthesis.
Made with modern languages and toolsets, but with classic hardware compatibility in mind, DT3K works as a native MS-DOS game as well as a modern 64-bit application for Windows and Linux.
The downloadable demo below is a fully-fledged "shareware" release, I would recommend you try it out before purchasing! The full game does offer an extra gameplay mode, car upgrades, and an alternative graphics rendering option.
In order to download this game you must purchase it at or above the minimum price of $5 USD. You will get access to the following files:

Very impressive work with the engine and the game was fun to play too once you start to find the customers. Granted, it's still just the demo and there were some technical problems (crashes, etc.), but it seems very promising for the final release.
I'd like to invite your game to this year's Game Development World Championship!
