Electronic Arts has sent its newest The Sims game to a deserted island, as Yesterday it shipped The Sims 2 Castaway for the Wii, Nintendo DS, PlayStation 2 and PSP to retail stores in North America and Europe. The Sims 2 Castaway lets players explore an uncharted island filled with sandy beaches, green lagoons and explosive volcanic mountains.
Here's the basic premise of the game: "As The Sims 2 Castaway begins, players will have the opportunity to create a crew of Sims. In true Sims fashion, each character brings a unique skill, humor and quirkiness to the crew, promising an entertaining adventure in this new island environment. Upon setting sail, a storm quickly approaches, casting your Sims overboard on a beautiful beach all alone.
"Having no other items but the shirt on his back, your Sim will embark on a tropical journey, choosing to either subsist on the beautiful island or flee altogether. Will your Sim choose to reunite with the crew and enlist the help of clever monkeys to make a flourishing community with the Musician, Doctor, Park Ranger and more? Or will he follow the treasure map to the island in search of clues that will eventually lead them to freedom? How your Sims survive, or thrive, is up to you."
