After being shipwrecked and stranded on an island, the hero of the latest Bokujou Monogatari teams up with a small family of survivors to make a new home. By developing the land and creating a vibrant island economy supported by agriculture, trade, and livestock, the newfound home away from home might become a teeming commercial jewel. At the outset of the game, players may select a male character named Mark or a female character named Chelsea.
With the promise of a better life, immigrants will visit your pristine shores and possibly settle down. The game mandates a population limit of 100 people but inhabitants aren�t set in stone and may leave and arrive at any time which allows for a constant state of flux.
