Tropico 6

Strategy 29 March 2019

One of the installments in the economy strategy game series started in 2001 - Tropico. The game has been developed by Limbic Entertainment - the creators of Might & Magic X: Legacy and Might & Magic: Heroes VII.

The objective is to manage the country by developing the cities, providing the citizens with jobs, fixing the damage caused by various natural disasters, as well as issuing decrees that shape both domestic and foreign policies. One of the novelties delivered by Tropico 6 is the fact that the action of the game no longer takes place on a single island - instead, the country is spread between multiple islands, all of which have to be managed by the player at the same time. The islands can be connected by bridges and tunnels. The game also features agents, who can be dispatched to various corners of the world to - not entirely legally - obtain blueprints for certain structures, such as the Statue of Liberty or the Eiffel Tower. Moreover, the developers decided to allow the players to modify the main palace and appear before the society. During a speech, a player can e.g. make populistic promises.
