The Tyne and Wear Metro has recently launched a new game to test the knowledge of users of the system, all as part of their revised plans to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the network. Station Master can be accessed through the Nexus website and features questions about Metro stations, nearby attractions and some of the 40 year history.
Players will be shown a random selection of 20 multi-choice questions per game and throughout the game will get tips and information about Metro and places to visit.
Hew Lewis, Nexus Customer Services Director, said: “We’re delighted to launch this new game as part of our anniversary celebrations. It’s a bit of fun for all ages and now that families can travel to more places and attractions we hope our game adds a little extra to your familiar Metro journey. Metro has been part of everyday life in Tyne and Wear for 40 years, providing a vital service to many and part of a great day out for others. The game really does highlight the areas that the network covers, and the fantastic range of attractions within easy reach of our stations.”
It has been developed by Newcastle based digital agency Venture Stream with Chris Ogle from the company saying: “We were thrilled to have been given the opportunity to partner with Nexus. It was great to work with an iconic local brand, and one which we were already very familiar with, half of our employees use Metro regularly. Station Master celebrates the forty year history of the Tyne & Wear Metro, and we hope that those returning to travel after lockdown will enjoy their journey a little more thanks to this fun game.”
