Worms / Bracknell / Baltimore 7th August 2009
GamesCom, the new industry show for computer and video games in Cologne marks a fresh start for Kalypso Media with a first and significant presence on the convention's show floor. The vast Tropico 3 themed booth sports an atmospheric beach design and will allow visitors to play the highly anticipated successor to the cult game for the first time exclusively.
Why not come and visit us in Hall 6.1, Booth C054 and put yourself in El Presidente's shoes and relax in our custom-built beach chairs.
Kalypso will also be present in the GamesCom Business Centre, combining the Kalypso branches Germany, UK and USA. Here, we will showcase not only Tropico 3 but also reveal a new and exciting exclusive title currently under development by Kalypso's internal development team Realmforge Studios in Munich.
Furthermore, Daniel Dumont and Kay Struve from Kalypso's Gaming Minds development studio in Gütersloh will be standing up to questions regarding their latest project, the new Patrician game scheduled for release in summer 2010.
You can find Kalypso in Hall 4.1, Booth E025/F024 in the Business Centre.
