The most immediately striking aspect of the new game is its visual style. I must confess that it’s grown on me, and gradually so. The fashionable tiltshifted graphics courtesy of the new Glassbox engine emit an aura of quirky light-heartedness that originally put me off. I have, after all, enjoyed the company of muddy brown water pipes below a mathematical grid for the last twenty years. But, seeing it all in motion, with buildings plopping into space with satisfying thuds, the effect is beautiful – it’s like watching a model city whirr into life, nuclear power stations and all, and if there’s one thing that defines the SimCity series, it’s the sense of warmth and ambience. Maxis seems to have a struck a good middle ground between rig-taxing photorealism and sickly cute.
Developers on the game recently gave me a brief demo of their new SimCity, crafting a simple city to show some of the finer elements of their PC-only revival. They drew their roads, which now can be curvy. They did not terraform (there’s no re-shaping of land in this game). They zoned the land between the roads, and as houses popped, moving vans pulled in. All of the traffic in the game is simulated, they pointed out. Every house has at least one Sim in it who has a job and goes to work. Each house emits some light, as do car headlights, turning the night-time part of the game into a spectacle of darkened hues and glowing lights.
