DEATH TAXI 3000 is an arcade racer that bridges the gap between the retro-inspired and the homebrew.

Built to the specifications of PC games from the early to mid 1990s, around its custom raycaster engine, DT3K works as a native MS-DOS game as well as a modern 64 bit application with 3D accelerated graphics.

Taking inspiration from classics such as Quarantine and Crazy Taxi, the game features graphics displayed in a carefully crafted 256 color VGA palette, digital CD-ROM audio soundtrack and realtime FM synthesized sound effects.

Gameplay options

Arcade Mode

Play against the clock picking up as many passengers as you can and challenge your high scores.

Career Mode

Earn money doing fares to repair and upgrade your cab in the garage. Choose between fast-paced racing action or a chill driving experience, exploring the procedurally generated city streets.

Featured in this release

  • 64-bit Windows and Linux versions, in both oldschool Software Renderer and 3D-accelerated OpenGL options.
  • Full MS-DOS CD-ROM version, including unlocked Career Mode, emulated through a preconfigured DOSBox.
  • Soundtrack in Redbook audio format of era-appropriate synth tunes, featuring two tracks by musician Noelle "Speedy" Aman!
  • Unified graphical launcher to choose your favorite flavor of retro. Includes options for different video resolutions, pixel scaling and scanline effects.

If you own vintage hardware, note you are free to copy the game files from their DOSBox environment and over to your MS-DOS or Windows 95/98 computer! Please check classic hardware requirements on the official website.
