A Stab At It: The First Templar

Wandering the streets of San Francisco the other week I happened to stumble on a hotel where Kalypso Media were showing off The First Templar. Lucky for me, I thought, because I'd actually been meaning to find out a bit about the game. Turns out it's a ferocious co-op melee game, with elements of Tomb Raider. As Kalypso themselves admitted, they aren't really taking on…

Presi-Dented: Tropico 4 Delayed, Trailer

In the unlikely event that your plans for the summer revolved around the release of the as-yet undetailed Tropico 4, I am so sorry. The game, which was scheduled for Q2 this summer, has slipped to August. On the plus side, there's a trailer! On the down side, the trailer shows very little. Urgh, this is all too rollercoastery for this early in the morning.…

The Last One To Know: The First Templar

Hmmph, the instruments must be playing up. I somehow didn't get a proper reading on The First Templar which was announced earlier this year. It's a sword-based Medieval-dude-ending experience from Haemimont Games, whose name you might recognise from Tropico 3 and Grand Ages: Rome. A bit of a departure then, from management to third-person action. (I spent a long moment there trying to come up…

We’re Also Getting Tropico 4

Kalypso and Haemimont Games aren't abandoning their dreams of benevolent dictatorship simulation any time soon. We're going to be basking in the warm light of a fourth island-managing build and diplomacy game in Q2 2011. It looks like this will be an expanded take on Tropico 3, with new buildings and political features, some new online rankings and Facebook/Twitter feature stuff, as well as revamped…

Grand Ages Expansion As Download

Grand Ages: Rome wasn't a bad city management game (with some mild RTS combat elements), but I'd probably buy Tropico 3, which was by the same team in the same engine. If you're already gone to that Roman place then you might be interested to hear that the expansion has hit as a download (at GamersGate, but other portals are apparently imminent). It's called Reign…

Desert Island Fisc(al Policy): Tropico 3 Demo

A lovely sunny demo has arrived on the shores of the internet: it's for banana-republican management sequel Tropico 3! It's 1.1gb in girth, and can be downloaded from here. As in previous games, you take the mantle of a benevolent dictator of a small island, and try to make the wheels of monopolistic money practices turn for both you and your citizens. The demo contains…

Tropical Tropico 3 Trailer

Recollections of the Tropico games rapidly disappeared into the hazy history of tycoon games, but they were nevertheless remarkably playable at the time. I'm glad that Kalypso Media have decided to support a third iteration of the series, developed by Haemimont Games. I hope the Bulgarian team can get the tone of it right - their recent Grand Ages: Rome was pretty and playable, but…

Grand Ages: Rome Built In A Day

Somewhat fiddly and annoying city-builder Grand Ages: Rome (previously Imperium Romanum II) is out this week, and while it might not be the smoothest city-building strategy game we've ever encountered, it's certainly one of the most visually impressive, with its lavishly detailed ancient urban systems, and boggling long-zoom. The Roman metropolis you can construct with its aqueducts and villas is eye-soothingly realistic: perfect for an…

Tropico 3: Dictate Your Thoughts

Here's a story that got lost in our weekend of commenty madness. Reader John reminded us it was announced on Friday that Kalypso, a publisher of Sins of a Solar Empire and Gal Civ II, had acquired the rights to the Tropico series from Take 2. The consequences of this being the declaration that there will be a Tropico 3. To be developed by Haemimont…
