Cab It Up


If I was on Twitter this would be a tweet but I'm not so it's a really short blog post instead. 

Neo Cab is the best game I've played in a long time. And I want this picture on a T-shirt.

Full review tomorrow. Maybe. 

Depends which timeline we're in.


  1. Based on reviews it's essentially a visual novel. I've been looking for another good one. Really loved Doki Doki Literature Club. I have been trying to get into Stein's Gate (supposedly one of the all time greats), but I am seven hours in and it still isn't clicking with me. I may give this a try.

    The only thing that gives me pause is that two reviews I read also say that Neo Cab ends somewhat abruptly and not in a very satisfying way (though if it has multiple endings like most visual novels, that may be a somewhat limited assessment). I'll be looking forward to your more detailed impressions with interest if you get around to writing them :-)

    1. The ending is certainly abrupt, that's true. It took me by surprise. I think it needs just one extra, obvious scene that for some reason isn't there. I didn't find it at all unsatisfying, though. There's a coda that really works to make the whole feel complete.

      Of course, that's the ending I got. And according to the achievement I also got at the same time, only just over a quarter of players can be seeing that one. I definitely will be replaying Neo Cab to see some of the other outcomes. For several reasons that I'll save for a post it has the potential to be one of the more replayable games I've come across.

      Also, while it definitely is a visual novel, it does also have some pretty strong game elements, too. Doki Doki is a good comparison although Neo Cab doesn't attempt any of the meta-narrative tricks DDLC does.
