Talk about a sweet deal. Right now you can play the heck out of the full version of Kalypso’s Tropico 4 on Steam over the weekend. If you decide it’s not your cup of java, no sweat. But, if you find its blend of oil, tobacco and banana republics up your alley, you can buy it for $US13.59, a 66 per cent saving off its regular $39.99 price.
All of the game’s DLC is also on sale, each one $US1.69, with the exception of the more recent Modern Times expansion, which is $US14.99.
There are worse ways you could spend your weekend — fishing for grenades in a pond full of lava, say — so if you’re keen on strategy games and haven’t looked up Tropico previously, here’s a good opportunity to get in without disintegrating your wallet.
