Castaway Stories is the third game in the the Sims Stories series, a spin-off of the Sims franchise. The gameplay from the original franchise has once again been adapted, simplified, and turned into a fixed-storyline experience. A secondary, more classic and open-ended mode is available as well. This entry in the series introduces an entirely new setting for the franchise as it takes place on an uncharted, tropical island with jungle, beaches and volcanoes.
In the story mode players control Jessica who washes ashore with almost no belongings. She has to explore the island, find shelter, make fire, learn to hunt for food, and befriend the natives and the other castaways.
