It can be difficult to find time to finish a video game, especially if you only have a few hours a week to play. In our biweekly column Short Play we suggest video games that can be started and finished in a weekend.

Normally I only cover one game at a time on Short Play, but after playing 20 Minute Metropolis and Islanders back to back, it’s hard not to think of how they relate to each other. Both are puzzle games about building cities, with very different approaches to gameplay and style. Despite this, both feel like they have a similar outlook on humanity’s exploitative relationship with nature.
