Tropico II Unveiled
9:27 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Gaming site Voodoo Extreme has noted that a sequel to the popular island management simulation Tropico is in the works. Detailed in the latest issue of Computer Games Magazine, this sequel has been passed from PopTop, developers of the first game, to Frog City Software.

Forum posts by a PopTop employee at Cafe Tropico confirm the sequel and note that the main theme will center around pirates, with pirate-like activities that include maintaining a Pirate Hideout and sailing ships:

PopTop's roll has been very much at the high level. We discussed the design and features at the beginning of the development and let Frog City go from there. They are not new to strategy games so they tended to kill off sub par ideas before they even got to us. They are keeping much of the tone of Tropico but with a twisted look at Pirates. Since you're all about setting up the Pirate Hideout, it's not a traditional pirate game... at least 'till others decide to do one like this too. It's really got some great stuff.
Other posts in the same thread show what appear to be various pictures of the game, including one titled "Cove, Sweet Cove" that shows off several buildings. Be sure to check out both the forum thread and the article at Voodoo Extreme for more information.
