Finding our way in the diaspora of game worlds

The Biggest Air-raid Shelter Ever Built

Map of the Moscow Metro, in Russian. Many of these maps are dotted around the game but most are not in quite as good shape anymore.

As far as I can tell, this graphic differs slightly from the full map usually associated with either the Metro 2033 game or its original novel. It is brightly-coloured and shares many of that map’s conventions — primarily, the use of symbols and inset collections of station interchanges. It is, however, also quite a departure from the real-world map for the Moscow Metro. That map doesn’t need to show symbols for what lies at each station, and nor is it cropped so. Though I cannot speak for other maps throughout the game, it would seem that most show only the city centre, as contained within the circular brown line, M5.
