After so many adventure horror games, the question begs if real life doesn’t provide enough horrors. The public train transportation system certainly does, as shown in Dinosaur Polo Club‘s subway simulation Mini Metro.
Sometimes the simplest things can become the most complicated, and carrying passengers from one place to another with interconnected lines is definitely one of them. Those who rely on public transportation services know how difficult it is to get to work on time when trains are cancelled or one is squeezed inside a train that is too small to fit all the people.
Mini Metro shows with its very simplistic graphics how difficult it is for the people running a subway station as well. Interconnecting lines, trying to figure out the fastest possible route and coping with all the people is both challenging and fascinatingly fun. Of course the further one progresses, the more difficult it becomes to deal with every situation. Just as in real life, only that one doesn’t get paid for doing this demanding job or one doesn’t get too late to work with a crowd of people one doesn’t know. A simple, but very to-the-point strategy game from the first looks of it, with interesting additions like upgrades and statistics to further improve the transport systems of various cities.
The game is now available for PC on GOG and Steam, with a discount launch of 10% until Friday, November 13, 5:59 PM GMT.
