Because urban planning can look like crap in HD, SimCity gets the Instagram treatment

Hipsters all up in my SimCity? Never thought I’d see the day. Still, this is pretty cool – Ocean Quigley, Creative Director at Maxis, recently took to his blog to show off the variety of filters you can implement in your SimCity game. The filters range from ‘Juicy’, seen above, to my personal favourite, ‘Black & Red’, which you can see after the break. Apart from looking pretty cool and allowing you to customize your SimCity experience just the way you want it, these filters also make SimCity more accessible to colourblind gamers, as Kotaku points out. And that’s worthy of applause in its own right.

If you’d rather not browse through (dapper Danny) Ocean Quigley’s – seriously, how awesome is that name? – blog, here are the links to the relevant posts:
