    Tropico 3 is an upcoming 2009 politics and city building video game developed by Haemimont Games and published by Kalypso Media and it is a sequel to Tropico. The game will return to the roots of the series, putting the player into the shoes of "El Presidente" - a dictator governing over an island banana republic. Staying true to the spirit of Tropico, the new game will be a construction and management simulation with heavy emphasis on city building. Tropico 3 is scheduled to be released on October 20, 2009 for PC and February 2010 for Xbox 360.

    The time is yesterday and the Cold War is in full swing. Through means devious and dubious you have seized power in the Caribbean island country of Tropico, where you now rule as the all-powerful "El Presidente".

    You decide whether you want to use your army to secure your power base in the best traditions of corrupt, unscrupulous tyrants everywhere or lead your people to prosperity in your role as generous elder statesman.

    No matter whether you turn Tropico into a vacation paradise, a police state or a modern industrial nation - you will always have to defend your actions before your people! Wander through Tropico as El Presidente in order to intimidate political opponents, hold populist speeches or just to enjoy your country's own Caribbean flair.

    Don't forget to keep a sharp eye on the dangers and side-effects of your absolute power! Danger lurks on every corner, be it militant revolutionaries bent on installing a communist junta, or the machinations of the superpowers USA and the Soviet Union, both of whom would like to see a more amenable ruler in strategically important Tropico!

    History takes its course with events such as the Cuba crisis, papal visits and other actual decisive historical events.

    The only question is whether or not you can play a role in that history!

    At first I thought it sounded extremely boring, but that description actually intrigues me.

    Oh it is, just tried it out. Sim City in an island banana republic. Different factions (commies, intelligentsia, religious, US agricorps, environmentalist, etc) that you stamp out or woo, secret police, etc

    Latin beats while you're playing with news reports interspersed.

    It's going to be great when my new computer is ready -- i7, gtx 295, 6 GB ram :bowdown:

    I bought the first Tropico and just never tried it. :o

    This looks good though. Being a mod I suppose I should be into a dictator sim.
