The Kalypso Media Group is a privately owned, global, independent developer and publisher of interactive entertainment software. With roughly 100 employees worldwide, we operate seven distinct offices across Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States.

The group owns two development studios and works with multiple leading, independent developers to provide a constant supply of high-quality games – including our digital-first label, Kasedo Games.
Kalypso Media ‘s titles include the critically-acclaimed “Tropico” series, as well as strong strategy game franchises like “Dungeons", "Port Royale", "Commandos", “Railway Empire" and “Warhammer 40k: Mechanicus”, which have been released for all major platforms (PC, Xbox One, PS4, Switch).

SPACEBASE STARTOPIA captivates with its original mix of economic simulation and empire building strategy paired with classic RTS fights. In addition to the single player campaign and skirmish mode, there’s also a competitive and co-op multiplayer mode for up to 4 players. And as if maintaining the 3 Space Station Decks, entertaining the 8 Alien races and defending against invaders were not enough of a challenge, the dynamic narrator AI is not going to mince matters and commentates the events.
Set sail and join the colonial powers of Spain, England, France and the Netherlands in their fight for supremacy of the Caribbean in the 17th century. In ‘Port Royale 4’ you will take control of a colony as a young and ambitious governor who is eager to learn what it takes to manage and grow his small settlement into a bustling trader city.
In times of political turmoil and social unrest, the people are calling for visionary leaders, who will steer the fate of their country with foresight and ingenuity. Prove yourself once again as a feared dictator or peace-loving statesman on the island state of Tropico and shape the fate of your nation through four distinctive eras. Face new challenges on the international stage and always keep the needs of your people in mind.
Kalypso Media is looking forward to its biggest launch in the company’s history with Tropico 6 in Japan thanks to a distribution-agreement with publishing giant Square Enix. “Tropico 6 is the best game in the series and has a huge fan-base not only in Western countries but also in Japan”, says Kalypso’s International Marketing Director Anika Thun. “Thanks to the huge interest in our game and together with the high product quality we could interest Square Enix in our product to publish Tropico 6 on PlayStation 4. It is a great honour to be working with the very dedicated team at Square Enix.”
After being released on PC, Mac and Linux early this year, Tropico 6 is coming worldwide to consoles (PlayStation 4, Xbox One) on September 27th. Tropico 6 is one of the biggest city-building brands in gaming and loved by fans for its irresistible gameplay-loop, the trademark tongue-in-cheek humour and its great Caribbean soundtrack.
