Welp, I built the stupid skinny city of Saudi Arabia in Cities: Skylines

We have our first look at Line City a few weeks ago, which is Saudi Arabia’s bizarre plan to spend billions of dollars building a bizarre sci-fi city along the Red Sea. According to the two-minute video above, the city will be a long straight stretching 170 kilometers across the desert. The entire city will be the height of a skyscraper while only being 200 meters wide and entirely covered in mirrors. For reasons? Presumably, there are reasons.

While I think Line City would make a good location for a futuristic zombie movie where people have to make their way from one end of town to the other – by all means make this movie – it seems like a terrible place to house 9 million people without asking them first if they want to live in a weird, skinny city with mirrored skyscrapers. Without forgetting all the people who will be moved or worse just to build the stupid thing.
