PlayWay is not slowing down. The publisher of this year's, successful border guard simulator - Contraband Police - has unveiled another project, in which players will take on the role of... a cab driver in 19th-century London.

London Cab, as this is the name of the upcoming simulator telling the story of the work of a British coachman, is being developed by RetroGamez, for which this is the debut work.

A day in the life of a London cab driver

On the occasion of the game's reveal, a short gameplay footage has hit the web, showing the tasks and dangers that players will face while playing London Cab.

So what can we expect from this simulator?

  • First of all, quite a lot of driving through the rainy and crowded streets of 19th-century London.
  • Navigating with the help of a handy map, the skillful reading of which will prove crucial in determining the optimal route.
  • Taking care of the unreliable carriage, as well as the faithful mount, whose health and well-being will be crucial to the carriage driver's professional existence.
  • A dose of action arising from the dangers of London at the time, where "danger lurks at every turn, and surviving each day is a challenge."

Unfortunately, for now we haven't even learned the game's approximate release date nor the platforms on which the title is heading (apart from PC, of course).
