Tropico Gold for PC, Mac Version in May
2:03 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

As the IMG news page creaks and groans under the strain of multiple Tropico stories, PC news source Gone Gold has announced that the Windows version of this economic and political sim of island dictatorship has "gone gold" and is ready for duplication. The brief missive from Pop Top, written "in character" from the point of view of a government stooge, notes that the PC version will hit stores on April 24th and the Mac OS version will follow later in May. Here is an excerpt:

As you know we have been monitoring the political situation in the Caribbean. The tiny island known as Tropico is ready for leadership. We have intercepted a message to the American press from the factions known as Pop Top Software and God Games, subsidiaries of Take-Two Interactive Software (NASDAQ: TTWO). 

The message is calling for the Americans to send their best leaders for consideration of the dictatorship of this new island nation. It seems that "Project Tropico" has reached a mission status of "Gold" and the Americans will be ready to ship the PC faction leaders on April 24th followed by the Mac faction leaders in May.

If by some strange accident of fate or fortune you have never heard of Tropico before, please find your way to our detailed preview of this title. Thanks to Gone Gold for their uncanny ability to track PC game releases.
