CONTEXT

Tropico: Play dictator in a banana republic

If you are not familiar with the game series, Tropico is a mix of a building sim and an economic and political simulation with a satirical twist. The game is described as follows:

With a nation’s people crying out for a visionary leader, players will immerse themselves in the world of Tropico and the role of El Presidente in a whole new way. Overseeing construction and jobs, as well as military, trade and foreign affairs, virtual Presidentes are free to transform the sleepy shores of Tropico into a superpower on the world stage. All aspects of day-to-day life can be shaped to meet the growing expectations of the Tropican people, while balancing competing political demands, overcoming natural disasters and navigating diplomatic relations.

Tropico is being developed by Feral Interactive, a British studio that specializes in ports. It is the studio’s first foray into VR. According to Feral Interactive, it has implemented intuitive VR controls and a variety of movement options to allow for effortless city planning and political maneuvering.

There are already a number of city builders available for Meta Quest: Townsmen VR (Quest 3 only), Little Cities, and Cities: VR. We are eager to see if Feral Interactive will be able to successfully adapt the game to the specifics of VR.
