Kalypso Media’s Dictator ‘em Up sends up a famous scene from Pirates Of The Carribean in the latest cinematic trailer.

A major new feature of the game, and an explanation for the above trailer, is that you will now be able to start your dictatorship from the colonial period. This will continue all the way through to the world and cold wars as well as the more familiar setting of the modern day. A “dynasty” feature will allow you to keep your dictatorship in the family throughout the time span of the game.

In addition to that, the game will also feature cooperative and competitive gameplay with four other players on each island. Cities can be built by each player on the same island, introducing the possiblity to either work with, or against, your neighbours.

Developed by Haemimont Games, Tropico 5 is set for release this summer on PC, Mac, Linux, PS4 and Xbox 360.


Playing games since I'd developed enough motor functions to hold a joystick. From Commodore 64 all the way through to the latest gen. Favourite games to play are FPS games and anything with a deep and compelling story and a world that draws you in. I also enjoy writing, film making and playing bass in whatever band will have me :)
