"We are very excited about this release as there's been a gap in this genre since games like Traffic Giant were released and early gamer feedback seems to indicate Cities in Motion can fill that gap" said Mattias Lilja, Executive Producer for Paradox Interactive.

"At Colossal Order we’ve grown up playing transportation and management simulation games and our vision was to create a great version of the type of games we love to play ourselves" said Mariina Hallikainen, CEO and Producer at Colossal Order Ltd.

About Cities in Motion:

Developed by Colossal Order Ltd, Cities in Motion sees players develop and operate their own public transport company building a travel network across Vienna, Berlin, Helsinki and Amsterdam using more than 30 different modes of transport including buses, trams, subway trains and water buses. As each city develops and grows the player must continue to meet the ever changing transport needs of its commuters, while at the same time ensuring it remains as profitable as possible.

Featuring an in-depth campaign mode made up of 12 scenarios along with an open ended sandbox mode, an advanced map editor that allows players to create their own cities, plus much more, Cities in Motion will challenge players to create the perfect public transport system that has no cancellations, no delays and where the passengers are always happy!
