Haemimont Games AD continues to walk along the path of tropical island simulator with their latest installment in the Tropico series, once again bringing us back under the iron grip of El Presidente himself. As well as a wealth of other new features, including advanced trading mechanics, technology, scientific research trees and island exploration, Tropico 5 will add cooperative and competitive multiplayer for up to four players for the first time in the series’ history.
Taking the reigns as El Presidente is our own Kosta Andreadis, finding out that Haemimont Games AD's fifth installment in the Tropico series is one filled with a number of promises for a new life with a new dictator.
To borrow from a cliché ridden sitcom staple, the Tropico series has always felt like the wacky neighbour to the Sim City straight man. At its core it’s very much a city builder, where economic concerns, politics, trade routes, production, power, roads, revenue and all that other good city stuff is the name of the game.

for all your El Presidente goodness.
