It’s also Tropico’s 20th anniversary, and the series is also included in Kalypso Media’s Steam publisher sale.
It’s easy to forget that Tropico, the popular banana republic ’em up, wasn’t always published by Kalypso Media. No, the first two games in the series were published by Gathering of Developers, a now-defunct subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive.
But somewhere between Tropico 2: Pirate Cove and Tropico 3, Kalypso Media bought the rights to the series, when the fledgling strategy publisher was just two years old. So while it might seem weird, Kalypso is actually five years younger than its most popular child, the Tropico series. (Kalypso Media is just 15 years old, to Tropico’s 20.)
To celebrate both these anniversaries, Kalypso Media is hosting a Steam publisher sale, with up to 80% off its games, including the Tropico series – and its most recent entry, Tropico 6 – and pre-orders on upcoming strategy RPG, Disciples: Liberation.
Kalypso Media Steam publisher sale highlights
- Tropico 6 Starter Bundle – 60% off
- Dungeons: Complete Collection – 72% off
- Railway Empire: Complete Collection – 81% off
- Sudden Strike: Complete Collection: 74% off
- Disciples: Liberation (pre-order) – 10% off
- Commandos 2 HD Remaster – 50% off
- Praetorians HD Remaster – 50% off
- Spacebase Startopia – 25% off
- Port Royale 4 – 25% off
- Dark – 60% off
And if you don’t want to purchase any of the bundles above, then you can buy individual games in the Tropico, Dungeons, Railway Empire, and Sudden Strike series, plus a bunch of DLC, for big discounts too.
The Kalypso Media Steam publisher sale is on right now and… we’re not entirely sure when it finishes? Kalypso will be hosting a number of live streams to support the sale lasting until Saturday, so there’s a clue, perhaps.
