    Play through the fun moments of your Sim’s life in this easy-to-play, laptop-friendly version of The Sims - All The Sims Stories games are designed with laptop-friendly controls that let you play even when you’re on the go.

    In the new and engaging directed Story mode, you take your Sims through a unique and entertaining storyline full of conflict and dramatic twists. In open-ended Classic mode, you create Sims and then choose how they’ll fulfill their dreams.

    The Sims Stories games are standalone games and do not support expansion packs or stuff packs from The Sims or The Sims 2 collections. The big difference is the addition of the new directed Story mode, laptop-friendly system specs, and the ability to play the game in a separate window while using your own IM and email to stay connected with friends.

    The Sims Stories titles are The Sims Life Stories, The Sims Pet Stories and The Sims Castaway Stories.

    THE SIMS CASTAWAY STORIES
    This is Their Survival Story and You are the Guide

    Following the theme of the console-only The Sims 2 Castaway series, The Sims Castaway Stories is a PC game and the third release in The Sims Stories series. Help your Sims thrive and survive as they have washed ashore to an uncharted island. Count on many unexpected twists and turns in this easy-to-play, laptop-friendly version of The Sims.

    Featuring engaging characters and accessible storylines, Castaway Stories is sure to entertain both new and experienced players of The Sims. For the first time ever on the PC, your Sim can leave the urban jungle for an uncharted island filled with sandy beaches, green lagoons, explosive volcanic mountains and more!

    Meet Jessica, a Sim who washes ashore with only a steamer trunk and a hatchet to her name. With nothing more than orangutans, lagoons and fish in sight, Jessica embarks on her tropical journey and must choose to either survive or escape. While on the island, Jessica will meet natives and castaways in hopes of creating a flourishing community. To do this she must accomplish various tasks - from spear fishing and scavenger hunting to fire starting and more!

    Guide your Sim through the much-longer directed Story mode, taking on a variety of challenges as you build your new life from scratch, meet the natives, and discover the hidden mysteries of the island. Unlock rewards as you achieve set goals for your Sim. In open-ended Freeplay mode, create your Sims, design their shelters, and explore the island. It's a whole new way to play The Sims - you decide how their stories unfold.
    • It's Never Been Easier to Play on Your Laptop - Featuring simple shortcuts and an all-new auto-pause that lets you start and stop easily when opening/closing your laptop.
    • Be Creative While Staying Connected - Easily stay in touch with friends by using your own IM and email while playing the game in its own window.
