Kalypso Media is a global independent developer, marketer and publisher of interactive entertainment software. Headquartered in Germany, Kalypso Media was founded by industry veterans and media entrepreneurs Simon Hellwig and Stefan Marcinek.

Kalypso is globally known as one of the leading publishers of strategy and simulation games for PC, Mac, Linux and consoles. Its titles, such as the bestselling ‘Tropico’ series, are available throughout the world via the company’s vast and expanded digital and traditional boxed distribution networks.
