Tropico Q&A
9:48 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Online Game Review has posted a new Q&A with Phil Steinmeyer, president of PopTop Software and team lead for their current title-in-progress Tropico. The game is a twist on the sim/empire builder genre, which places the player as dictator-for-life of a Third-World tropical island, trying to keep your populace happy, yet tightly controlled. The interview discusses the basics about the game itself, the PopTop team working on it, and what direction they're thinking of going after Tropico is complete. Here's a clip:

OnlineGameReview- What's next for you? Or is Tropico the end of the line?

Phil- I think I'd like to do something different after Tropico. We might revisit the Railroad Tycoon series, or we might do something entirely different. It'll definitely be a strategy game, developed primarily for the PC platform - beyond that, it's too early to say.

Have a look at the rest of the interview for more details, and stay tuned; the game is due to be released for the Mac and PC this Spring. PopTop is doing the Mac port in-house, and the game will be published by Gathering of Developers.
