QuadropolisAfter a hard day’s work, you take a break to admire your city through the large windows of your office…

At this hour, most of your citizens are going back home, heading for the tall buildings that you see in front of you. Some others are still wandering in the parks and gardens with their kids, and others decided to go shopping in the new mall that you opened a few weeks ago.
