[edit] Background

This is their survival story and you are the guide.

This time your Sims have washed up on a tropical island!

Help them make a new life in an unexplored paradise in this easy-to-play, laptop-friendly version of The Sims. The Sims Castaway Stories features two great ways to play. In the new and engaging directed Story mode, fulfill goals as you explore the island, build a shelter, learn to find food, and make your Sims' lives as fun and comfortable as possible. You even unlock rewards along the way as you achieve set goals.

In open-ended Free play mode, you create your Sims and determine how they'll evolve on their new island home. In an environment where anything-or anyone-can wash up on the beach, you decide how their stories unfold.
