I got the tip via Pockettactics, but I couldn’t find any mention of it here. Please excuse me if this has already been mentioned and I just couldn’t find it.
It’s an awesome, pausable realtime, railway building game. Each game takes five minutes.
The alpha-build is playable in a browser window and available for download from the above link. Even though still an alpha, it is more bite-sized fun than many much more polished games. The finished version is due in Q2.
I love watching my metro network expand and the sense of impending disaster towards the end.
“Noo! If I only had rerouted line 1 to that station instead of that one!” Nevermind, screw work, I’ll start a new game.
Try it out and post your scores here. My current best (alpha build 8) is 717.
