Criminals aren't born – they are made.

Welcome to the early 2000s! You are Eddie, and a lifestyle of bad choices made you an outlaw seeking refuge. Don't worry tho, Isla Sombra is the perfect place for fugitives like you!

You're not planning to just surrender and stay there forever though. Prove your worth, use your talents and get your life back! Making a fortune along the way won't hurt either...


You start out as a nobody on a foreign, hostile island, without resources or connections. Work your way up to the heights of respect and fortune. Establish your hideouts, produce drugs and sell them on the streets. Reach clients and suppliers… and grow your operation. Expand to other villages and towns, but beware. The big fishes don’t like it when someone stirs their waters.


DDS2 features an open world significantly bigger than Ghetto from Drug Dealer Simulator. Visit a variety of towns and villages that brim with life. Unlock numerous quick travel options. Go inside new types of buildings. Experience dynamic weather including tropical conditions.


You can’t run an empire alone. When you’re wealthy enough, hire people who’ll take over some of your duties. Assign them with ranks in your gang’s hierarchy. Give them specific jobs and they’ll know what to do. Expand and decorate your hideout and lab, and move on to establish new ones.

See all stages of the career, from a street corner dealer to the cigar-smoking mastermind.


Your industry wasn’t built on friendship, so better find a way to deal with crooked cops, hostile gangs, and the local militia. Avoid them, bribe them or run away. Jumping on rooftops, sliding down ladders, and hopping over walls has a name in DDS2.

It’s called a workday.


  • Many improved and many new ways of acquiring, processing and distributing narcotics. Buy and produce drugs or byproducts, and process, mix and/or purify them to achieve the desired quality.
  • Expansive and varied environments, from small villages to harbors to towns and everything in between.
  • Improved A.I., both for NPCs and enemies. Militia can raid a village and harass the townsfolk.
  • Unique economy with two currencies – the local one and the much desired U.S. dollar.
  • Early 2000s technology and an atmosphere of a Caribbean dictatorship, full of colorful characters with their own ambitions and agendas.

DDS2 Devlog: Work Camps


Dealers, it’s time to talk about the consequences of your actions.

We’re just kidding!

Or are we?

In DDS2 if you get caught by the gendarmerie or in a raid on one of your hideouts, you can be sent to a work camp. So you better watch out!

If you get unlucky enough to get there, don’t despair, it’s not the end of the world. Yet. To get out, you’ll need to collect enough passes for your good behaviour. How many is enough? Well, that depends on the crime you are being punished for.

How do you get the passes? There are a few ways to do that: you can either roll cigarettes, wash clothes or bake bread.

Ironically, getting sent to the work camp may be an opportunity for you as well! If you have enough street cred, you can start selling goods there. If you can smuggle them in, that is. It’s worth a try tho, right? That’s a whole new client base!

Just be careful not to make enemies there. Both the guards and fellow prisoners can get offended by some of your actions.

If you can’t be bothered to play nice and earn your passes, there is another method of getting out of the work camp. However, it’s gonna cost you an arm and a leg (money, we mean lots of money), and it counts as running away – it will be noted!

On the other hand, if you want to get that sweet money flowing and expand your clientele to include the work camp folks BUT you don’t wanna get caught to get in, you can. You just need to find an alternative method. Trust us, it is possible.

So what’s your plans? Will you avoid the work camp? Or will you seek a way in?

If you played DDS1, you’ll be familiar with the base concept of the hideout and some of the mechanics. But if you haven’t played DDS1, no worries...
