Megapolis is an older title, but positively rated and it's now on Steam with Linux support. It's a small city building simulator, something more casual than say Cities Skylines.

Never tried it myself, but I've heard of it, any of you tried it?

It seems from the screenshots it looks like you can only build in the small diamond? That feels sorta limiting.

It actually looks like a browser game or 90s city builder.

Is that a bad thing or good thing? Or is it a matter of opinion which bleeds into the first question?

I want to understand!

Yay, finally a city builder with a campaign. And it has a demo, too.

I'm a little confused. It looks like this game just appeared on Steam. So, how was it sold before that? The company's website gives no hints that it's available anywhere else. There's a mobile/facebook game by the same name, but it's from another developer.

It's more like a mobile phone or facebook game, It wouldn't impress me if It have social or pay-to-win features.
As for city builders of 90' I rather play simcity 1989, simicty 2000 1994, or simcity 3000 1999 (that also came to linux).
I think all where better than that, and all 90s games.

Well, if it has a big and interesting feature not shown on this video, I could consider it.
