Gamma 14

Just a little update to tidy up a few issues—the interface no longer vanishes if you continue a scored game into Endless mode, and the Greek, Catalan, and Hungarian localisations have been restored. A huge thanks to our community for completing those translations!

Gamma13, no really this time

Hello everyone! The latest update, gamma13, is now live, for the second time. This time we decided to ship without the crash so you'll actually get to play it for longer than two seconds.

On a more serious note, we've looked at our build processes and made a few changes so things like this don't slip through again. Thank you for your patience.

The update includes the following major changes:

  • A new map, San Francisco! Bridge over the two estuaries as you link up the cities of the Bay Area.
  • Major overhaul of the line-building code. This has cleared up a lot of the niggling issues when building and editing routes, and also made middle-edits feel a lot nicer.
  • Lines can now cross. It's still best to avoid it as your trains move slower when they have to cross other lines.

Enjoy!

About This Game

In Mini Metro, you take on the task of designing the subway layout for a rapidly expanding city. Your city starts with three stations. Draw routes between these stations to connect them with subway lines. Commuters travel along your lines to get around the city as fast as they can. Each station can only hold a handful of waiting commuters so your subway network will need to be well-designed to avoid delays.

The city is growing. More stations are opening, and commuters are appearing faster. The demands on your network are ever-increasing. You'll be constantly redesigning your lines to maximise efficiency. The new assets you earn every week will help immensely — as long as they're used wisely.

Eventually your network will fail. Stations will open too quickly. Commuters will crowd the platforms. How long the city keeps moving is up to you.

Key Features

  • Compelling, constructive, hectic, relaxed gameplay. If that makes sense. It doesn't though, aye? You just gotta play it.
  • Three game modes: Normal for quick scored games, Endless for stress-free sandbox play, and Extreme for the ultimate challenge.
  • Eleven real-world cities to design subways for (London, New York City, Paris, Berlin, Hong Kong, Osaka, Saint Petersburg, Montreal, São Paulo, Cairo, and Auckland). Each has a unique colour theme, set of obstacles, and pace.
  • Random city growth, so each game plays out differently. A strategy that proved successful last game may not help you in the next.
  • Each game's map is a work of art, built by you in the classic abstract subway style of Harry Beck. If you think it's a keeper, save it, tweet it, show it off or make it your desktop background!
  • Soundtrack by Disasterpeace
  • Colorblind and night modes.
  • Trains! Did we mention them yet?

Demo

You can check out Mini Metro for yourself and play a game on the London map in the demo. The demo uses the Unity webplayer, so you'll need the Unity plugin (Windows and OS X only unfortunately).
