ps, might be totally wrong, but kalypso is german, deepsilver is germain and since linux is used a lot there in the goverment sector for instance, feels like the developers there are picking it up more, but might just be me looking wrong

The Germans are doing it right. Wish I could say the same about the Poles. GOG is taking way too long.

More and more new AA(A) titles are coming to Linux.
Is this a sign that the launch Valve console is close (a few months)?

My goodness! This is pleasant news for me and my brother. I've been playing Tropico 1 through Wine for some time now and my bro likes Tropico 4. Double plus good!

Great news. The title is a bit confusing. It seems that the tropico 5 city builder (like editor) is coming to Linux. Maybe you could reword it? Like Tropico 5, an Island City Builder is headed to Linux.

I agree, I thought this was a level editor as well. Which would be odd, but similar to dedicated servers and such running in linux

Awesome! Does this possibly mean games published by Kalypso in the future will support Linux? My goodness at this rate, I might go insane from Linux gaming happiness...

Hahahaha! Had a good giggle at that

I remember playing Tropico 1 and 2. I really liked it.
