Tropico Interview
11:15 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The Corporation recently pulled aside one of PopTop Software's 3d artists, Brian Feldges. In the interview, actually conducted at Macworld NY last month, Feldges answers several questions about PopTop's upcoming sim-game, Tropico. In case you're wondering what the game is going to be about, he offers a good summary:

Tropico is a simulation game much like SimCity, only in this case you play the dictator of a small Caribbean island. Basically, your job is to keep people happy enough, so that they donít overthrow you. There are many different ways to do that. You can choose to ally with either the Soviets or the Americans, [and] you can choose what kind of economy you want, capitalistic or communistic.
Tropico is looking to be a great new take on the sim genre and we're really looking forward to seeing what PopTop can do with the idea. The game is using their Railroad Tycoon II engine, so most of the programming is already in place and the team is filling in the artwork and play balancing. Tropico is set to be released simultaneously for Mac and PC next year.
