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 arcade mode of the game is made available for free as shareware. Donators get to unlock the career mode where you can drive without a time limit and buy upgrades for your cab. The full game also comes with the OpenGL renderer version and other perks soon to come.

Get in the Death Taxi

I have a few passenger slots to fill and I'd love to put some players in the game! You will get a character designed to your likeness and get to pick all the lines he/she will say in the speech bubbles, as well as receive special credits in the game.

This game has potential. I'm a big fan of DOS games, so this was a surprise find. Keep up the awesome work!

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!
