The Modern Zombie Taxi Co. Announced for PlayStation VR

The Modern Zombie Taxi Co. is a new and exciting PlayStation VR game that lets you get to experience zombies in a completely new way. As seemingly the last human on earth, you take on the task of driving these brain-eating (and tea drinking) bodies to their chosen destination — but you better do it the right way!

Modern Zombie began as a fun VR demo with the player driving a car around filled up with rag dolls. Sharing the same physical space with the other floppy folks was hilarious and we knew we wanted to create a game out of this idea. We spent the next few months making a demo that we would show at BitSummit, an independent games festival here in Kyoto, Japan.

The game was an immediate hit at the show with the attendees and we were really surprised when we found out it won the best in show award at the event! The slapstick humor really seemed to resonate with folks. After BitSummit, we were lucky enough to create a relationship with the amazing team at Santa Monica Studio! Together, we have been working hard to bring you this very silly game for PlayStation VR.

The Modern Zombie Taxi Co. allows you to get real up-close with the zombies in a fun and quirky way as they bounce around in your car, shamble about and (poorly) drive around town. You’ll find that some zombies have very particular requests for their taxi ride and you can be sure they’ll tell you all about them as they careen about inside your car and invade your personal space. Don’t worry if they get too close — you can always just punch them off using your own hands and one-to-one tracking with DualShock 4 and PlayStation Camera!

Take advantage of PlayStation VR head tracking and look in the backseat of your taxi to witness these zany zombies’ antics first-hand! Take in this brightly colored, happy world filled with sandwich rain and biscuit hunts, beach balls, and much, much more. The slow-going zombies never seem to stop needing your help to take them places.

The Modern Zombie Taxi Co. will give players a memorable and unique VR experience that we hope will make them laugh as much as we have during the development of this game. We’ve fallen for these zombies and their odd personalities in this weird world of theirs, and we hope you will too!

  • I guess they don’t have seatbelts in the zombie apocalypse. Just as well, as it looks a lot more fun this way :-)

    • iamtylerdurden1

      Looks awesome, tailor-made for VR.

      Modern Zombie will likely play beautifully and be a wonderful VR experience, day 1.

      It’s basically a driving game, or racing game if u will. An open world VR driving game with traditional analog and motion features. Even if the style doesn’t appeal to you this is a game that will have very fun and very well made gameplay.

  • This looks fun. I think I could enjoy driving Zombies around. We shall see…

  • DeaderThanDead

    Reminds me of Enviro-Bear 2010! I am so getting this.

  • JaredTequila

    This game looks so dumb . . . in the best way possible! Reminds me of Crazy Taxi. I’ll keep my eye on this one.

  • grumpy4bucky

    Literally, this game looks like it was developed in 2002 by an Uzbekistan farmer. Who would pay $800 for a VR system to play this?

    • iamtylerdurden1

      Idk, who would pay $800 for a VR hmd to play anything? $800 lmfao. More like 300-$400 friend.

      I think ppl will spend 300 or so dollars for PSVR in order to play AAA experiences like –

      London Heist
      Gran Turismo Sport
      Eve Valkyrie
      Robinson: The Journey
      NO MAN’S SKY
      Dreams
      Adrift
      Rigs
      The Deep
      Kitchen
      Get Even
      Ace Combat 7
      Street Fighter V
      Tekken 7

      Other interesting experiences like –

      Eagle Flight (Ubisoft)
      Psychonauts
      Battlezone
      Godling
      Golem
      SuperHyperCube
      Job Simulator (looks good, no lie)
      and yes….Modern Zombie Taxi

      This awesome list was off the top of my head. Pretty damn impressive though.

      PS4 Cost: $340

      1 single game: $60

      PSVR Morpheus: ~$400

      Total Cost: $800

      Again…why would anyone pay $800 to play with these N64 style graphics?
