New Tropico Characters
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

PopTop has published their weekly character spotlight for the upcoming dictator-sim game Tropico. This week's feature is a casino 'pitboss,' who is rendered very well like the other characters shown so far from the game. Taking a quick look back, it seems we failed to mention the Professor update from last week, so have a look at him as well.


For those wondering what Tropico is all about, imagine setting SimCity on a tropical island. Then set yourself up as the dictator of this island, who must either have his people follow him out of love -- or fear. PopTop is using an enhanced version of the Railroad Tycoon II graphics engine for the game, and they are planning to release it simultaneously for both the Mac and PC next year. Check out the Tropico site for more details.
