While recently browing the Kalypso Media forums for Omerta, I noticed that a new subforum was created for Troico 5.
Tropico is a series of real-time strategy games revolting around you, being a dictatot of a small island in the caribbean sea.
I always liked Tropico as a series because it emphasizes being fun, rather than being 100% serious like most city-building/management games are.
This time you'll play as El Presidente from the Colonial Ages to the nearby future, which is different compared to the older games in series,
where you were basically playing in the same day and age. Hopefully this offer enough innovation to make the game enjoyable and not the same as the previous ones.
The Eras – From the 19th century to the 21st, each era carries its own challenges and opportunities. Begin your reign during colonial times and advance your nation through the modern era and into the future!
The Dynasty – Each member of El Presidente’s extended family is present on the island and may be appointed to key leadership positions, earning skills and experience in their assigned roles.
Research and Renovate – Advance your nation by discovering new buildings, technologies and resources. Transform your old buildings into modernized, hyper-efficient designs worthy of an economic superpower!
Advanced trade system and trade fleet – Amass a global trade fleet and use your ships to secure import/export trade routes to neighbouring islands and key nations.
Explore your island – Discover what lies beyond the fog of war. Send prospectors to look for new mineral and ore deposits, but be wary of hostile animals and native tribes.
All new art – All artwork is reworked to provide Tropico 5 with a distinct historic visual identity. Choose from over 100 unique buildings from each of the individual eras.
Cooperative and competitive multiplayer – Up to four players can build up their own cities and economies on any given island map. Players can share resources and citizens, or declare war on each other.
