Tropico FAQ, Character Updates
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
PopTop Software has made a few updates to its web site recently, focusing on their upcoming sim game Tropico. For the uninitiated, Tropico is a sim based on a tropical island with you as the dictator of your own regime. This seems a very interesting twist on the classic sim genre, and we're very much looking forward to seeing this title sometime next year.
The growing list of Character profiles has been updated to include the Journalist, a dangerous figure to any dictator who wants to control the media. However, the bigger news is their updates to the list of Frequently Asked Questions. This list is short but covers a number of juicy topics, including a demo, beta test, language support, and these two questions:
When do you plan on having the game finished?So perhaps Mac users could see Tropico in late March or April? The game is based on a modified version of the Railroad Tycoon II engine which of course has already been ported to the Mac OS, so we expect the Mac version of Tropico to follow the PC version closely.
We plan on having the game released to stores in March. We currently feel confident that we will make this date, but understand that the quality of the game comes first.
Will there be a Mac/Playstation/Dreamcast/etc. version of the game?
The game will initially ship for the PC. There will also be a Mac version shipped soon afterwards. No other platform conversion can be discussed at this time.
