Subway Map Simulator Lets People Play Urban Planner [Video]
Players are challenged to create their own virtual public transportation system for fun.

Designed by Dinosaur Polo Club, Mini Metro has players build virtual neighborhoods and carefully plan out how avatars get from one station to the next, all to prevent the inevitable collapse of their ever-growing public transit system.
This subway map simulator is vividly draw out with brightly colored lines, and features moving geometric shapes which are suppose to represent railway cars. With infinite ways to experiment with, players can build, save, and share their most abstract blueprints – even desktop backgrounds can be created.
Intended as a way for people to visualize the on-going transportation needs within metropolitan cities, this game offers a comical peak into the development of the urban scene, as well as the becomings of a labyrinthine public transportation.
Developers are anticipating the release of Mini Metro sometime in mid-2014, and is currently petitioning for acceptance on Steam Greenlight – stay tuned!
