GP is an admitted sucker for simulation games, so it’s no surprise that World of Subway caught our eye.
German developer TML Studios launched their first foray into subway sims in 2005 by adding the Berlin underground to Microsoft Train Simulator, a game which enjoys a following among hardcore rail enthusiasts. Top News has a report:
The game allows players to manoeuvre between New York City and New Jersey, picking up passengers along the way. Publisher Aerosoft says the program will win people over with its realism: slow motion is used to convey the sensation of movement. The three-dimensional cockpit starts vibrating at high speeds.
The program’s creators do not intend stopping at New York. A series is planned focusing on the world’s most interesting subway stretches.
