A New City Hall!

Hello everyone,

It's a busy time here at Mercury Games now that we're turning our full attention to the production process for Big City.

Before we start production of the miniatures, we're making some minor changes to some of the buildings - adding some details here and there and further improving select models. It's painstaking work, but fortunately we have a very talented artist!

Some of you asked us about the City Hall piece, and as many of you know, it's important to have this piece stand out as much as reasonably possible in order to make it easy to spot in the city.  Yes, for those of you that don't know, that miniature is modeled on the city hall in Toronto, Canada - a building which has won many awards for its unique design which makes it perfect for inclusion in Big City.

We've decided to make some changes to that miniature, adding some more height and detail.  Here is a preview!

 As you can see this piece is taller and more detailed, and this helps accomplish our goal of making something that can stand out but also look great too. 

For those of you who saw the previous model (in-person or in a picture) we can tell you that this new model is 20% taller than before. We hope you like it!


We'll have more to show over the coming weeks, of course, but for now we'll wish you all a happy and safe Holiday Season!

      Thank you so much for improving City Hall!

      One more thing to comment is that the residents are almost as high as other 5-or-10-story blocks. It's kind of weird seeing the resident is even higher the 4-story parking garage.

      I think one element that make the old Big City so lively is that the residents were flat. They effectively enhanced the size of other blocks, creating the depth for the city.

      I really wish you could do something to the new resident blocks so they can fit with other block in scale.
