Strategy 2018

One of the installments in the economy strategy game series started in 2001 - Tropico. The game has been developed by Limbic Entertainment - the creators of Might & Magic X: Legacy and Might & Magic: Heroes VII. In Tropico 6, a player assumes the role of El Presidente - the leader of a banana republic. The objective is to manage the country by developing the cities, providing the citizens with jobs, fixing the damage caused by various natural disasters, as well as issuing decrees that shape both domestic and foreign policies. One of the novelties delivered by Tropico 6 is the fact that the action of the game no longer takes place on a single island - instead, the country is spread between multiple islands, all of which have to be managed by a player at the same time. These islands can be connected by bridges and tunnels. The game also features the agents, who can be dispatched to different corners of the world to - not entirely legally - obtain blueprints of certain structures, such as the Statue of Liberty and The Eiffel Tower. Moreover, the developers decided to allow players to modify the main palace and appear before the society. During a speech, a player can e.g. make populistic promises.

Strategy 26 May 2017

Remake of a bestselling economic strategy game released in 1997, prepared by creators of the original – British studio System 3 Software. In the game we take on the role of an owner of a construction company, and our goal is to develop a thriving business and eliminate competition, always breathing down our neck. During the game we have to take care of raw materials supply, such as concrete or wood, and construct customer-fit houses which, when sold or rented, will give us a reasonable profit. A characteristic feature of the title is the possibility to take advantage of various not always lawful methods of undermining the competition. We can bribe protesting hippies, psychopaths, thieves, or saboteurs, and in the later stages of the game also cooperate with mafia. The main feature of the refreshed version of Constructor are its HD resolution graphics. Creators decided not to interfere with the classic gameplay mechanics, keeping also the large dose of humor that traditionally accompanies our struggle.

Surviving Mars (XONE)
Surviving Mars (XONE)

Strategy February 2018

A science fiction economic strategy developed by Haemimont Games and published by Paradox Interactive. The title is a city builder in which the player must design the first human settlement on Mars. Being a manager of a space colony requires the player to take care of many matters - the survival and well care of colony inhabitants depends on it. The colonists won’t survive for long without any access to oxygen and water and the advanced technology of the colony requires regular energy shipments. What makes things even harder is the fact that the systems constructed by the player can be broken by environmental conditions: the water tanks can freeze and the sun accumulators can be deactivated by a sandstorm. In addition to that, the agency that sponsored the whole mission has specific requirements – if the player had chosen a profit-driven corporation as a sponsor, then he must remember to create a mine for valuable resources and a system that will transport these resources to Earth. Each inhabitant of the colony is a unique character with specific traits and parameters impacted by his living conditions. A happy colonist can decide to have children while a constantly stressed worker will grow psychical traumas. The title is a sandbox which is partially unpredictable due to the mysteries – events and scenarios inspired by classic science fiction tropes.
