Some Impressions: Cities In Motion

Get out of your cars! All of you! Right now! Please! I'm begging you!

Cities in Motion! It’s a transport tycoon game from Paradox that’s due out at the tail-end of next month. I’ve been playing with the latest build, and I actually have a problem with the game’s title.

Just think of all those buses and subway systems running in an inefficient manner. Brr.

You Can Be Slow Or Fast: Cities In Motion

Cities In Motion does make me wish it was a game about enormous cities on legs fighting with cannon though

Paradox have announced a lot today, which we’ll get back to shortly – but the trailer to Cities In Motion especially caught my eye. It’s a transport-simulation game, set in Europe across 100 years from 1920 and generally covers pretty much any way that people get objects from A to B. Bar gyrocopters, which is only me, at night, in my alter ego of the Clockwork Basher. Anyway, here’s the trailer…
