Unter dem originalen Titel "Space Taxi" darf wohl niemand veröffentlichen, solange dieser Mr. Kutcher nicht sein ok gibt. Ob auch die Spielmechanik lizensiert ist , weiß ich nicht. Aber vermutlich schon, sonst hätte wohl längst eine größere Firma ein Plagiat auf den Markt geworfen :D

Netter Seitenhieb auf die Genero-Simulatoren 20XX. ;)

Sehe ich das richtig, dass das tatsächlich eine "Fortsetzung" vom Original ist? Ob die wohl nach diesen weitern 15 Jahren an Teil 3 arbeiten oder doch noch 5 Jährchen zuwarten?

Auch wenn's unoriginell ist: Ich persönlich mag ja Fortsetzungen oder Neuauflagen, die das Rad nicht komplett neu erfinden, d.h. wenn das Grundkonzept passt.

Was mich eher abschreckt ist die Plastik-Grafik der 00er Jahre. Gefühlt altert die tatsächlich deutlich schlechter als jede noch so pixeligste Ur-Versionen.

Dear Sir, I object strongly with the last thread, and the next post.

In the old, golden days, video games where thematically almost exclusively catering for a single target audience: male adolescents. Logically, some fantasy themes were recurrent: saving the earth and all of humanity or even the whole universe. Those were the goals and challenges of tomorrow's family men. Gaming having grown up, yesterday's youths are now confronted with reality. Those old dreams have been tainted as childish and the games industry now also delivers realism into the formerly well kept play rooms of today. One way of doing this apparently involves simulating every single job, no matter how absurd, and also every single every day activity, no matter how trivial, in a game. Resulting in increasingly obscure products in which the original ideas can hardly be recognized anymomre. Though even in the good old days, us heroes had to take a couple of collateral damage hits and, for example, resign ourselves to the role of a simple taxi driver. The implication being boring drives from A to B, where the highlight of the day is exchanging some gossip with the passengers. Unless, of course, it was Space Taxi.
