11:16 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
GameSpot has scored a new developer update from PopTop, makers of their upcoming dictator-sim game, Tropico. They also received six new screen shots from the game, which is looking very nice for a game for warped sim fans who dream of being a dictator of a third-world country. Here is a quick clip from the eccentric diary update from Franz Felsl:
We knew we wanted to use our S3D engine, but it would need some modification. We also knew we wanted to make all pieces of art in 3D, and that would require some education for most of our artists. We also had some loose ends from Railroad Tycoon II to tie up, so our first task was to reorganize the office.Read on for more hijinx from the PopTop boys. Tropico is a sim set on a Cuba- like island, cigars not included. Be sure to check out the new screen shots as this game is looking very fun. Tropico should be out in early 2001 for Mac and PC from Gathering of Developers.
