Default Cities in motion

I came across this game when I read the announcement for the sequel. At first glance it seems like a Simcity clone, but it's actually a Transport Tycoon clone. And it's from Paradox, so it must be very difficult and hard to master.

There's a shipload of DLC as well, including this beauty. If you don't understand why that isn't hilarious, you've probably never visited the Paradox forums

Anyway, Cities in motion 2 is on my watchlist.

Start here (or here if the comics don't work). Don't blame me if you won't do anything productive this afternoon.

Looks like a fun game indeed.. I`ve been following the new release of Simcity due in March, wasn`t elected for the beta unfortunately. I`ve been reading just a few bad reviews about it so I`m going to play either one of these two games.. But Simcity is much more expensive, so keep me posted if you have news about this CiM2..

I found there's a free demo for CiM1. It's not on Steam, so I'm not sure I'll make the effort to download and install it manually. I don't know if I even remember how to do that

Anyway, worth checking out. CiM2 won't be out for another half a year, and I think it won't be much cheaper than Simcity (at least: by then...). And EU4 will be out as well, so I seriously doubt I'll have any spare time left to play CiM2 or feed the baby.

Probably have to pop in an 'I accept these terms and conditions' somewhere.

Cities in Motion 2 is part of the Indie Royale Bundle, if you're interested in this game you pick it up cheaply. I might, if I figure out how to pay without creditcard.

Update: there is quite some depth in this game, but apparently it's exclusively sandbox-mode. There's multiplayer, but it's coop...
