About Mini Metro

In Mini Metro, you take on the task of designing the subway layout for a rapidly expanding city. Your city starts with three stations. Draw routes between these stations to connect them with subway lines. Commuters travel along your lines to get around the city as fast as they can. Each station can only hold a handful of waiting commuters so your subway network will need to be well-designed to avoid delays.

The city is growing. More stations are opening, and commuters are appearing faster. The demands on your network are ever-increasing. You'll be constantly redesigning your lines to maximise efficiency. The upgrades you earn every week will help immensely — as long as they're used wisely.

Eventually your network will fail. Stations will open too quickly. Commuters will crowd the platforms. How long the trains keep running is up to you.

Playable Alpha

But don't listen to me blathering on about it, check it out for yourself! A frequently-updated playable alpha is available at the Mini Metro website, It is playable either in your browser through the Unity Web Player plugin, or as a standalone build for Windows, Mac, or Linux.


  • Compelling, constructive, hectic, relaxed gameplay. If that makes sense.
  • At least four real-world cities to design subways for. Each has a unique colour theme, set of obstacles, and upgrade path. This is the minimum we have planned and we'll be adding more after the launch.
  • Each city grows randomly during the game so a strategy that proved successful last game may not help you in the next.
  • Limitless routing and upgrade strategies to discover and experiment with.
  • Each game's map is a work of art, built by the player in the classic abstract subway style. If you think it's a keeper, save it, tweet it, show it off or make it your desktop background!
  • Dynamic ambient soundtrack.
  • Trains!

Coming soon for PC, Mac, and Linux!

The game is relativly cheap and you could play it for DAYS! I just love this game! It's so awesome! And could you add the "Rhein-Main-Region" (Germany)? I know there is already a German map, but this would be sooo cool! It would also be cool if you could create maps on the steam workshop and upload them to your game.

Holy wow, just thinking of the posibilities if people could vote on the next metro to be virtualised, and eventually having the major metros in each country (where possible). Planning on having mod support? Excited for this
