Tin Salamunic: Colossal Order is a relatively new developer with only two games under their belt. Cities in Motion and its popular sequel showcased the team’s knack for complex strategy and innovation, although both titles were geared towards a very niche audience. They’ve now decided to branch out and tackle the city simulation genre in hopes of giving gamers a true follow up to the SimCity franchise. Cities: Skylines isn’t just inspired by EA’s 2013 sequel, at first glance it looks identical to it. Fortunately, where SimCity 2013 failed, Cities: Skylines succeeds gloriously. It’s a deep city management sim with beautiful visuals and unlimited replayability. Despite its steep learning curve and unconventional tutorials, Cities: Skylines is one of the most rewarding and satisfying city sims ever created.
