Like getting lost in a really good book or being thoroughly engrossed in an enjoyable movie or television show, video games are a great form of escapism for many people. Some want to live the life of their favorite athletes or sports teams. Others want to single-handedly take on the world (or try to save it) in more action-packed scenarios.
Cities in Motion (or CIM, for short) is sort of an escape from the escapism of those faster-paced games. Think of it as a digital train table in your basement. You can set it up, and sit back and relax, watching the world come to life before you eyes, or you can jump in and interact with it.
