Feral Interactive, the British publisher responsible for iOS games such as ROME: Total War, has today announced that it will be bringing strategic city builder and humorous dictator sim Tropico to the iPad later this year.
Based on Kalypso Media’s original acclaimed series, the iPad version has been completely redesigned and developed exclusively for mobile by Feral. The game will be a premium title with no in-app purchases whatsoever.
The storyline sees the player take on the role of El Presidente, leader of the Caribbean paradise island nation Tropico. It’s your job to build up your island’s infrastructure and manage its economy at the same time as balancing the demands of its various political factions. It’s up to you whether you want to run your very own island as an industrial metropolis, vacation paradise, or a police state, or something else altogether!
“With its delightful mix of strategy and tongue-in-cheek humour, the Tropico series has long been a favourite of desktop and console gamers alike,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “Re-imagining its gameplay for mobile has been great fun; we’re excited by the results, and are delighted to be bringing it to iPad.”
“We are thrilled to be working with Feral Interactive to further expand the Tropico IP to iPad gamers across the globe,” said Marcus Behrens, Publishing Director for Mobile at Kalypso Media. “Tropico has captured the hearts and imagination of millions of gamers during its 7 year history and this transition to tablet takes the brand on a whole new and exciting journey.”
