'Mini Motorways' Gets PC Date, Comes To Nintendo Switch Next Year - Trailer

Have you ever been stuck in traffic and wished you could do something to fix it? In Mini Motorways, the city's traffic problems are in your hands.

From the makers of Mini Metro, Mini Motorways is a game about drawing the roads that drive a growing city. Build a road network, one road at a time, to create a bustling metropolis. Redesign your city to keep the traffic flowing, and carefully manage upgrades to meet the changing demands. Mini Motorways’ relaxing experience gradually ramps up in difficulty as planners remove roadblocks to keep the traffic flowing smoothly.

Explore stunning maps based on iconic cities such as Rio de Janeiro, Munich, and Tokyo. Draw the roads that drive the city, building a traffic network that adapts to ever-changing procedurally generated maps to create bustling metropolises. Choose from upgrades like motorways, traffic lights, roundabouts, and tunnels to meet the demands of your expanding road network and connect homes to destinations so everyone can get where they need to go.

Compete in daily and weekly challenges with special conditions such as Mini Notorways, where no motorway upgrades are granted, High Density, in which buildings can pop up in already crowded neighborhoods for extra traffic complications, and others adding a fresh change of tires to the dynamically growing cities of the world.

How long can you keep the cities of the world moving?

The Steam release debuts two new maps for Dubai and Mexico City as well as the highly requested addition of roundabouts.

An additional gif capture feature enables city planners to share their efficient, absurd, and efficiently absurd cities with friends.

These and other future updates, including features such as additional maps and new game modes, will roll out in periodic cross-platform updates on Steam and Apple Arcade and later Nintendo Switch. 

“Ultimately, Mini Motorways is about solving problems. How long can you keep the city moving? It’s easy to predict short term results of your changes, but those can have wild consequences in the long term,” said Casey Lucas-Quaid, community manager at Dinosaur Polo Club. “It’s satisfying to watch this system you’ve built run and grow. Since Mini Motorways’ Apple Arcade launch, casual and hardcore players alike have worked to master its surprisingly complex systems.”

Key Features:

  • Dynamically growing cities that make every game unique!
  • Stunning maps visually inspired by cities all around the world for you to explore.
  • A variety of upgrades help you meet the demands of your ever-expanding road network.
  • Different colour modes to choose from, including colourblind and night modes.
  • Responsive, relaxing soundtrack that grows with your city, created by the wonderful Disasterpeace.

Currently available on Apple Arcade, Mini Motorways is coming PC (Steam) on July 20, 2021 ($9.99 USD / 8,19€ / £6.99), with a Nintendo Switch version to follow in in Q1 2022.
