11:13 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
PopTop's web site for their upcoming sim game Tropico has had its weekly update. The character highlight page now features the all-important figure of the Pro Athlete. And what other athlete would you hope to find on a tropical dictatorship than the soccer (football) player? Here's a clip describing this pawn in a sim of third-world dictatorship:
The Romans had gladiators, fighting to the death in the coliseum. The Spanish have their bullfights. But Tropico, Tropico has the finest, most popular sport in the world! Football!Check out the page for more info and the usual great animation of the athlete. Tropico is set to be released for Mac and PC in the first half of next year. PopTop's page also notes a new fansite, called the Cafe Tropico, is now up and running. Beware, as they use quite a bit of Java on the site (pun intended).

(That's Soccer for all the Americans out there...)
Stadiums are large and expensive, but they can be very profitable as well. And Futbol is great entertainment for your citizens.
