Description

Your Virtual Villagers are shipwrecked on a remote island, and must be guided to survive and flourish. You must assign your characters to find food (by foraging for berries, for example) and clean water supplies. Various jobs can be assigned, from farming and building to research and healing. They must also be mated to ensure a long-lasting tribe. There are 20 milestones to be reached, by combining characters, research and skills in logical real-world ways. Unusually, the game world continues to evolve while the program is not loaded; when you return the situation will have changed depending on how good your planning (and response to new situations, which are presented when you return) was.
