Tropico Release Date Set
1:01 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
VoodooExtreme recently got the scoop from Gathering of Developers' Jeff Smith (which was confirmed later today by an official press release) on the release dates for both the Mac and PC versions of Tropico. The PC build is set for release on April 16 and the Mac version of this sim game is due a month later on May 15. While it's not exactly a simultaneous release, a month is still a very reasonable amount of time to get the Mac build completed. This will also give them time to find any bugs found in the PC version which they can then fix in the Mac release (though don't call PC users beta testers, they don't like that). A demo will be available for the Mac in mid-June, which you can be sure you'll find on Macgamefiles.

The press release also goes into detail on the characters to be found in the games. Information is included on how their attitudes and actions will be determined by factors like education level, age, gender, intelligence, and nationality. Head over to GoDGames to read through the rest of the release for more information. We'll be bringing you more on Tropico as it nears release in May.
