Description
// Welcome to Taxi Journey

TAXI JOURNEY is a cross between an adventure game and a platformer set in a universe that combines charm, humor and mystery.

Behind TAXI JOURNEY lies a treasure trove of memories – the immense joy and pleasure we had playing games such as Limbo, Braid and Machinarium.

Let’s not forget that Lexis has a very experienced team. In fact, it has been developing games for over 20 years and has earned the trust of publishers such as Ubisoft, Namco Bandai and even Disney.

// The Game

Universe

TAXI JOURNEY is an original game somewhere between an adventure game and a puzzle game. It is set in a universe that combines charm, humor and mystery.

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.

Completely drawn in pencil, Taxi presents a very strong and personal graphic universe.It takes its inspiration from different movies and games such as the movies of Tim Burton and Myasaki and the very beautiful Limbo.

Gameplay

The aim of this game is to get Zoe to her destination by bypassing various obstacles using the laws of physics (dexterity), finding solutions to situations (puzzles) and interacting with various characters - but only by working together will Gino and Zoe succeed.

While Gino is at the wheel, Zoe can throw magic projectiles or put up her protective umbrella – the two characters make a perfect team. Like Limbo, Braid or Machinarium, TAXI JOURNEY relies on dexterity and thought processes.

But in TAXI JOURNEY, we are keen to focus on the story and the “adventure” dimension. As you advance in the game by solving puzzles and bypassing obstacles, we also want you to be moved by Gino and Zoe’s budding friendship and feel genuinely concerned about their plight

// The Team

Set up in 1990, Lexis Numerique has a very experienced team. With over nine million games sold worldwide through a network of prestigious partners (Ubisoft, Namco Bandai, Disney, Midway etc.), Lexis Numerique is one the leading independent game design and development studios in Europe.

Designer of highly original worlds, Lexis has created games with strong graphics and innovative features including “Missing; Since January”, “Evidence”, “The Experiment”, “Red Johnson’s Chronicles” and more recently “Alt-Minds” (available soon in the USA).


Convinced that it is still possible to explore new avenues in terms of gameplay and audiences, Lexis Numerique is fiercely committed to remaining independent. We believe that just like cinema, video games need blockbusters but they also need independent games to remain exciting and vibrant.
