Be the leader of your own banana republic in Tropico 4: Gold Edition, now on Mac

Feral Interactive on Thursday announced the release of Tropico 4: Gold Edition for the Mac, a city builder and political sim that puts you in the role of the ruler of a banana republic.

You rule a tiny Caribbean nation with one goal - to turn your modest land into a thriving world power. You do so by building a thriving tourist economy, managing political intrigue, overcoming natural disasters and dealing with foreign powers too. The game incorporates a 20-mission campaign.

As the Gold Edition, Feral has bundled content that didn't come with the original PC release of the game, including the Modern Times expansion pack, a separate 12-mission campaign that deals with more current events like online propaganda. The expansion pack adds 30 new building types, also.
