Mac Tropico Demo Confirmed
10:07 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Yesterday IMG brought you details on the (slim) possibility for a Mac port of the map editor for Tropico. While Phil Steinmeyer of Pop Top Software isn't completely decided on the issue, he will give it some thought. Then, later in the day, a demo of the game was announced for the PC. While this demo is an extemely large download (nearly 175MB!), those with broadband connections shouldn't have too much trouble with the file. Of course, with the Mac version of the demo not yet available, we went back to the source for details on a version for our platform -- can we expect a demo, and when? Here's what Steinmeyer had to say about it:

Yes, I'll probably do a Mac demo - it'd be around the same size as the PC
demo (172MB)
So, get your cable modems or DSL warmed up, because this one will be a monster. Those bandwidth-impaired readers of ours will find solace in a new CD from MacGameFiles; as soon as the Tropico demo is finished we will update the MGF CD to save you the downloading headache. The Mac version of Tropico is currently expected to be released in the coming weeks by MacSoft, so stay tuned for more details.
