Official Tropico Site Opens
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The trade sanctions have been lifted , and Gathering of Developers has unveiled their web site for the upcoming sim Tropico. This upcoming "dictator-sim" is being developed for Mac and PC by Pop Top and should be released in the next month or two. The new site is Flash-enhanced, so make sure you've got the browser plug-in installed. New screen shots are available, as well as some character bios and a list of Frequently Asked Questions.

GoD is also hosting a new contest for Tropico which calls on you to choose the 'ideal' dictator; this is a preview for the character profile you must choose in the game itself. It also shows how you can't make your character a perfect person, as flaws like flatulence or Tourette's Syndrome must be included to balance out the good traits. If you are the winner, your profile will be entered in the game as one of the default settings and you will receive loot from the Gathering to boot. Check out the contest page if you're interested.
