Giving indie developers a boost


Game Spotlight: Cities in Motion

We saw an early version of stunning-looking public transport simulator way back in the misty past of 2009. Even then the game looked great, with a slick, super-fast 3D engine, amazing little people wandering the streets of the cities and looking for transport, and some fantastically detailed models and great gameplay.

It looks like things have just kept on getting better since then, with the latest trailer for the game being released by publisher Paradox Interactive yesterday. The new video shows off the game's metro system, one of several ways for players to transport the masses across one of four cities in the game, showing an underground subway mode as well as elevated track sections with trains travelling up above the city streets on their way to various destinations.

The game sees players develop and operate their own public transport company, building a travel network across Vienna, Berlin, Helsinki and Amsterdam using more than 30 different modes of transport including buses, trams, subway trains, planes and water buses.

As each city develops and grows, the player must continue to meet the ever-changing transport needs of its commuters, while at the same time ensuring it remains as profitable as possible.

The game is set to feature an in-depth campaign mode, an open-ended sandbox mode and a map editor in which you can create your own cities.


And here's the trailer from back at Gamescom 2010 showing off more of this incredibly detailed game:
