Tropico Developer Diary
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

GameSpot has posted the second installment of their designer diary series by PopTop regarding their upcoming dictator-sim game Tropico. In this off-the-wall entry, Franz Felsl humorously explains the naming of the game and details their preparations for this year's E3 Expo, a crucial event for those who wish to promote their game to the media. Here's a clip about their rush to get ready for this event:

We knew the denizens of E3 were a wild pack of rabble-rousers with sharp eyes who were quick to party. Our benefactors at the port of G.O.D. are also well aware of this, and they arranged a spectacle of divine proportions on their and Tropico's behalf. Entertainers from the exotic world of Los Angeles were employed by the score in all manner of shapely shapes and sizes. Beverages of all types were to be provided to heighten the senses of those who would come to hear our tales and view the glimpses of the game that would be ours.
Tropico is set to be released sometime next year for both Mac and PC. PopTop is working on the Mac port themselves and are using the Railroad Tycoon II engine.
