Brand New Subway is a cool new web-browser based game that lets you design the New York City subway system from scratch, or tweak the existing one to make it better, all while attempting to decrease Metrocard fares, increase ridership and decrease overcrowding.

Players can choose to start from scratch or one of several NYC subway maps (including present-day, maps dating back to the early 1900s, or maps from the future). They can build new stations and lines to expand the system to new areas, or tear it down and redesign the whole thing. The game intends to evoke an imaginative spirit, to empower people to envision transportation according to their needs and desires, and to arouse the fun of tinkering with maps.

The game was created by electrical engineer Jason Wright as an entry into the "Power Broker" Game Design Competition. Winners will be announced this September.

Check out the free game for yourself and try your hand at planning the worlds largest public transit system!
