Looks like this was lifted from Seattle and was oriiginally called Johnny cab. Never mind, it seems cool. Wait, wasn’t there a sci fi movie with johnny cab?

Mike, I stole it from Runnerhub on Reddit and it was Johnny cab originally. I believe it was inspired by Total Recall (which was based on a Phillip K. Dick short story).
