I must admit, something about Tropico 5 didn't really click with me in the end. I'm hoping this one will, as the older titles I do have fond memories of. I will likely give this a review when the time is right.

It's pleasing to know that Kalypso Media will continue to publish Linux games!

About the game:

In times of political turmoil and social unrest, the people are calling for visionary leaders, who will steer the fate of their country with foresight and ingenuity. Prove yourself once again as a feared dictator or peace-loving statesman on the island state of Tropico and shape the fate of your very own banana republic through four distinctive eras. Face new challenges on the international stage and always keep the needs of your people in mind.

For the first time in the series, manage extensive archipelagos, build bridges to connect your islands and use new means of transportation and infrastructure. Send your Tropicans on raids to steal the wonders of the world, including the Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower. Customize your palace at will and give election speeches from your balcony, to win the favor of your subjects.

Tropico 5 looks great but I haven’t managed to even finish the tutorial due to the over-complexity and lack of fun. Hopefully T6 will be different enough… (and released on GOG!)

I will most likely get it. I have over 200 hours in Tropico 5 and enjoyed the campaigns. I wish that 6 will be better for playing multiplayer. While it can be done in 5, it's very clear that single player is the better experience. So I hope for both solid single player and multiplayer.

IDK, for me Tropico 5 looks as much as Tropico 4. Except Tropico 4 wasn't there on Linux. And if I recall correctly, not all Tropico players love pretty much a thing like foreign intrusion, which was presen in the latest games of the series.

Tropico 5 had too many mediocre reviews for me to feel comfortable buying it. Maybe 6 will be an improvement.

Really? I'm sometimes fed up with too complex games, but Tropico 5 is none of them! It's quite easy to start since all the options are quite limited at first they evolve throughout the game.

Tropico 5 was pretty simple, overly complex games are ones like Crusader Kings 2...
