Tropico 3: Gold Edition Coming To Macs In January

Feral Interactive today announced that Tropico 3: Gold Edition for the Mac will be released this January, 2012. Developed by Haemimont Games and published by Kalypso Media for Windows, Tropico 3: Gold Edition is a re-imagining of the classic construction and management simulation Tropico.

“Tropico 3: Gold Edition combines strategic gameplay with a tongue-in-cheek interpretation of a tumultuous period of world history,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “When you’re the corrupt dictator of an unpredictable tropical paradise, stuff happens.”

“Tropico 3 was a fantastic success on Windows,” said Simon Hellwig, Managing Director of Kalypso Media. “We’re thrilled to have the game and its expansion pack be released on the Mac as well.”

Tropico 3: Gold Edition is a combination of strategic city-builder and humorous political simulator that invites players to reign as El Presidente, dictator of the resource-rich Caribbean nation of Tropico. To govern is to choose, and as players build their island’s infrastructure, manage the economy and keep competing factions on side, they will have plenty of opportunity to find out whether they prefer to rule with a velvet glove or an iron fist.

To maintain their grip on power, players will need to create a cult of personality around El Presidente, composing his silver-tongued speeches, manipulating the media and building monuments in his honor. El Presidente’s character will determine the way he is regarded by the people, and whether he is inclined to run Tropico as a vacation paradise, a police state, an industrial metropolis, or all three!

Each of the 15 missions in Tropico 3: Gold Edition’s campaign mode challenges players to develop a single island, each with its own victory conditions, within a set time frame. Tropico 3: Gold Edition includes the Absolute Power expansion pack, which contains a completely new 10-mission campaign, additional islands and the ability to issue “Megalomania” edicts such as “Print Money”.
