Mini Metro

Mini Metro is the game I mentioned I was gifted a day or so ago and after my initial look at it I think I may be in love.

The art style of the game is like a metropolitan train map with the objective of getting your passengers, indicated by different shapes, to their respective shaped stations.  I’ve surprised myself that this is so appealing to me, but it is deceptively simple and gets challenging quickly.

Considering the game isn’t done I’m amazed by the quality so far. Obviously the gameplay has been thoroughly thought out – so much that I don’t care that there isn’t any sound yet!

It’s only $7 – get it on Steam.

Thanks Michael!

I was thinking tonight about Life is Strange showing me the important things I did and didn’t do in my play through once I was done and have come to the conclusion that I don’t like it.

I played through the game making decisions that are true to what I would have done myself, the pure choices if you will. Knowing that there are things I missed tempts me to play again to experience absolutely everything on offer – which, if I’d decided to do so, would have nullified or perhaps lessened the emotional connection I had with the game through the choices I’d made.

Sure, show me stats on what path people chose for the major plot points, but I’d prefer not to know things that are not part of my version of the story.

You know you have a lot of games on Steam when you spend 5 minutes trying to find one that was gifted to you because you forgot the name already.

I think it started with ‘m’…
