Feral Interactive today has released Tropico ™ 3: Gold Edition for the Mac . It is now available online for direct download from a variety of digital partner sites worldwide including http://www.feralinteractive.com and the Mac App Store. The game is also available for download and review by approved media.
Developed by Haemimont Games and published by Kalypso Media for Windows, Tropico 3: Gold Edition is a re-imagining of the classic construction and management simulation Tropico.
Tropico 3: Gold Edition is a combination of strategic city-builder and humorous political simulator that invites players to reign as El Presidente, dictator of the resource-rich Caribbean nation of Tropico. To govern is to choose, and as players build their island’s infrastructure, manage the economy and keep competing factions on side, they will have plenty of opportunity to find out whether they prefer to rule with a velvet glove or an iron fist.
Tropico 3 for the Mac will retail in North America for US $34.99, £24.99 (inc. VAT) in the UK and €29.99 (inc. VAT) throughout Europe. A mini-site dedicated to the game is available now at http://www.feralinteractive.com/tropico3.
