Video games allow us to live through any number of incredible experiences and dream-worthy encounters. Video games let people become galactic super-soldiers, international sports stars, or even ultimate assassins. Now, indie game Urban Flow is set to let people live out the ultimate fantasy – traffic control officer.
Announced by Baltoro Games, the indie developers behind Nintendo Switch titles like Moto Rush GT and Trancelation, Urban Flow is a musically-charged puzzle game set to arrive on the hybrid Nintendo handheld this June. It’s a game all about controlling busy city traffic through stop-light manipulation in order to prevent massive pile-ups and chaos.
The flow is simple. Each of the 100 levels in Urban Flow sets you into a top-down view of a slice of a busy city intersection. Cars are pouring in and out of cramped streets and roundabouts, and you’ll need to trigger traffic lights across the stage to keep cars traveling safely and succinctly. There’s gorgeous, chill music accompanying each stage to keep you in the zone, but matching your traffic light triggers to the beat of the music will also do you wonders.
Urban Flow is primarily a single-player experience, but you can also bring up to three other friends into the action and control traffic lights together – or unleash chaos on the city and just go nuts flicking random lights on and off.
Urban Flow is set to release on Nintendo Switch sometime in June.
