8:27 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Alongside MacSoft's other announcments today, they also let it be known that Tropico is now shipping for the Mac with full support for OS X. We've been following this dictatorship sim for a nearly a year now, and it's great to see it finally reaching the hands of Mac gamers. Tropico has received rave reviews on the PC noting it's originality, graphics, and depth of play. Here's an excerpt from the press release with more info:

MacSoft, an Infogrames, Inc (Nasday: IFGM) label, today announced the release of Pop Top Software's Tropico for the Mac. Featuring stunning graphics and a fully customizable environment, Tropico for the Mac includes additional scenarios and presents gamers with a very unique experience. Tropico will be displayed at Macworld Expo New York in the MacSoft booth (#2209) within the Jacob Javits Convention Center.

"Tropico for the Mac will interest both casual and hardcore gamers," said Paul Rinde, Senior Vice President of Infogrames. "It's a refreshing twist on 3D strategy simulation games and we are excited to bring Tropico to Mac OS X." 

"With its power, speed, stability and superior graphics capabilities, Mac OS X is an incredible platform for gaming," said Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "We are delighted that MacSoft has chosen Tropico as their debut title for Mac OS X and we look forward to them publishing more AAA games for our platform."
