The legendary computer game Sim City has been used as the basis for a new programme which is being used to project what the world's cities will look like in the future.

MetroQuest, a piece of software put together by Canadian developers Envision, allows the users to input the decisions that are being made by city planners and see how these areas will change over the next 40 years.

They can also manipulate various factors and explore "what if" future scenarios for their community.
