Tropico Development Update
12:13 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

VoodooExtreme received a development update from Pop Top Software's Phil Steinmeyer. With the April release date getting closer and closer for Tropico, things are beginning to wrap up. Here is the update from VE:

Dev update: Very busy. Dropped in the tutorial last week, finalizing the manual today. Ripped the text out for international localization last Friday. The bug list is pretty under control - the game is surprisingly stable. We still have a couple features to add, but they're pretty minor.


The game is very fun - everyone who has gotten a build so far has gotten addicted. I think (hope?) we have a hit on our hands that will get good reviews and sell well both to the core gamer market and to the mass market

The last we heard, Tropico was in simultaneous development at Pop Top. Hopefully, there will be little delay between the release of the Macintosh and PC versions. We'll be sure to bring you the latest news as Tropico nears release.
