Good Service: Mini Metro Launches Out Of Early Access

“It’s my favourite game about stretchy lines in a very long time,” Alec said after playing minimalist subway-building puzzle-o-strategy game Mini Metro [official site] when it hit Steam Early Access last year. They’re special stretchy lines which pull train lines out, see, connecting stations to stations and hopefully leading to a happy, well-oiled city infrastructure. Yeah, good luck with that. I lived in London, pal, I know how keenly transit systems take any excuse to grind to a halt.

If Mini Metro was lovely then, perhaps it’s even better now, as on Friday it left Early Access to properly launch. Or, you know, if you only buy games when they’re actually finished: it is now.

Right! Mini Metro is a transport-planning puzzler where you need to connect stations on abstract city maps. Draw a line, right? Easy. Then you need to connect another station. And another. And another. Soon, what seemed like a tidy little network is a sprawling mess of inefficient timings and flat-out awfulness. So redraw, redraw, try to make it better, try to keep the city running. Think of all the people whose mornings you’re ruining, you monster. What’s your next bright idea, Boris Buses? Get out.

By which I mean, Mini Metro is £6-ish for Windows, Mac, and Linux on Steam and GOG.
