*CLOSED* Giveaway: Tropico 4 Steam Special Edition

Tropico 4 Steam Special Edition steam inventory

When I pre-purchased Tropico 5 I was given a copy of Tropico 4: Special Steam Edition for free. My first thought was to gift it to one of my kids but I don’t know that they’d really enjoy it. They haven’t shown a lot of interest in city builders over the years and I’d rather not waste this on them so it’s my June giveaway! Tropico 4 brought a new system to level up your buildings that I don’t remember from the previous installments. Seeing the faces of your audio-voiced NPCs, such as Penultimo (always been my favorite) was a nice touch though, at some point, I’d like to see them walking up to el’ Presidente’ to engage him. That’d be neat … until it got old I suppose.

Tropico 4 is a fun city-builder management game set on a tropical island. You, El Presidente’, will determine what your island does and how well it does it. You can build a bustling tourist attraction on your island complete with a roller coaster, have a busy farm community and grow crops such as bananas, pineapple or coffee, you can focus on industries such as jewelry making, canning, lumber, … You can have it all with the right sized island! It’s up to you! You can also play campaigns with specific goals and see how far you get with them.

Here’s what the Steam store page for the Tropico4:Steam Special Edition has to say about the game: (copied and pasted from the store page below)

The world is changing and Tropico is moving with the times – geographical powers rise and fall and the world market is dominated by new players with new demands and offers – and you, as El Presidente, face a whole new set of challenges. If you are to triumph over your naysayers you will need to gain as much support from your people as possible. Your decisions will shape the future of your nation, and more importantly, the size of your off-shore bank account.
Tropico 4 expands on the gameplay of the previous game with new political additions ∼ including more superpowers to negotiate with, along with the ability to elect ministers into power to help get your more controversial policies passed. But remember to keep your friends close and your enemies closer as everyone has an agenda! Your political mettle will be thoroughly tested, as new natural disasters will have the populace clamoring for you and your cabinet to help them recover from some of the worst Mother Nature can dish out.

So, how does this giveaway work you ask?

  • You have to have Steam to play the game as I’ll be gifting the winner the game through Steam. There will be instructions in the email explaining how to download Steam in case you don’t have it already. Steam is a free download.
  • The winner will have to use a valid email address when commenting (not IN the comment itself, just in the input box you have to fill out TO comment so it’s kept private) so I can send the download link for the game. I won’t sell or give your email address to anyone, promise. If you’re signed in to WordPress when you comment make sure the email associated with your WordPress profile is a valid one that you can check.
  • You have to leave a comment on this post in order for me to enter you into a random draw to win the game.
  • Oh, and you need an internet connection to download the game.

– You don’t have to be my Steam friend in order for me to gift the game to you because Steam allows for people to send gifts to email addresses, not just through the client. If you want to add me as a Steam friend, that’s cool. Not required though.

– I will assign each person who comments a number and then enter the numbers in a Random Number Generator to determine the winner. Multiple comments from the same person won’t increase your chances of winning. In other words, if you comment 187 times you’re still only getting one entry number assigned to you.

This giveaway starts as soon as I publish this post (8AM CST on 06/02/14) and runs through (06/06/14 midnight CST ). I will then use the RNG linked above to draw a winner. I’ll email the winner and if I haven’t heard from them by Sunday night I’ll draw for a new winner on Monday, June 9th. Sound fair?

Comment below to enter for a chance to win and good luck, El Presidente’!


Editing to add: Giveaway is closed and a winner has been notified. Just waiting to hear from them!
