"Tropico 4: Gold Edition is an alluring proposition," said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. "Running a country is as challenging and addictive as ever, but the inclusion of the Modern Times expansion pack ups the ante with arrival of new technologies, such as the Internet, which gives your citizens all sorts of ideas about freedom and the use of information."For more information follow the links below.
"Feral Interactive's proven track-record of successful launches on Mac will give us an optimal start for Tropico 4 Gold," commented Anika Thun, Head of Marketing at Kalypso Media. "El Presidente, benevolent ruler of Tropico, is delighted to be building his realm on Mac and sends his greetings to his future minions."
Tropico 4: Gold Edition is a witty combination of city builder and political simulator that continues the colorful career of 'El Presidente', the charismatic ruler of the Caribbean paradise of Tropico. As El Presidente, players will transform Tropico from insignificant banana republic to serious world power over the course of a 20-mission campaign that sees them grapple with picky first-world tourists, demanding political factions, unforeseen natural disasters and even a missile crisis!
With a nation in the palm of their hand, players must decide whether to rule as a benevolent leader, despicable despot, left-wing idealist or champion of the free market. Whatever they choose, they will wield their influence over every aspect of Tropico's economy, infrastructure, politics and even its place on the world stage. All the while ensuring that a constant stream of revenue finds its way into a certain offshore bank account.
Tropico 4: Gold Edition includes the Modern Times expansion pack, which powers Tropico into the 21st century with an entirely separate 12-mission campaign that challenges El Presidente to protect his nation from unseen and sinister forces including online propaganda and a New World Order. Modern Times features 30 new buildings including a diamond cathedral, the mysterious "Babel Tower" and even a space program.
