New Tropico Preview, Bovine Bio
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Some new information has been posted recently concerning PopTop's upcoming dictatorship sim Tropico. The always-tactful 3DGN has posted a new 'Quickie' look at the game, which uses the same engine as PopTop's successful Railroad Tycoon II. Expect this game to be quite different from that title, and any other sim out there. Here's a clip from the preview to give you an idea of why:
This contest of skill and chance charges you with the task of being the newly installed dictator of a fictional Caribbean island in the years spanning the 1950's to the 1970's. The almighty G.O.D. wants you to know just how hard it is to be the king of the mountain ... er, island. Maybe then you won't be so quick to give Stalin or Mussolini a hard time. Then again, maybe you will... who's to say?Gathering of Developers will be publishing Tropico for the Mac and PC next year. The game will feature high resolution graphics and personalities for the many characters in the game that drive their actions.
Tropico Character Highlight
On that note, PopTop recently added a new feature to their Character Highlight section, which lists biographies for the characters from the game. This latest bio is actually of a cow, which will also have personality and intelligence ratings. Head to the Tropico site for a look at the quirky, off-beat humor you can expect from this title, due the middle of next year.
