I take public transit a lot, but most of the time I do so without thinking about the work that went into it. The planning, the excavation (for subways), the laying of rail lines. These are important things, but for many of us who rely on public transit, it’s just there. It exists.
But not in Mini Metro. Drawing inspiration from maps of real cities, Mini Metro tasks you with laying out subway lines in cities like Paris, Shanghai, and New York. Not only is it an excellent puzzle game, but it will probably give you a whole new perspective the next time you’re staring at a subway map.
