Default Castaway Paradise - (Stolen Couch Games)

http://stolencouchgames.com/blog/ann...g-the-village/
Quote:
Stolen Couch Games is proud to announce our new game: The Village (working title). The Village simulates life on a beautiful island populated by quirky villagers. It can be described as a unique combination of several popular games, inspired by Animal Crossing, Harvest Moon and the Sims, also containing elements of Zelda style side quests, and a constantly evolving feature set as we add more things to do in our little game world.

Follow this development blog to stay up to date with The Village. We will be posting at least once a week about all the big and some of the more interesting small changes in the game as it evolves. The entire dev team is involved and everybody will bring their unique perspective. We hope you enjoy following us!

Very Wind Waker-esque art style. Sounds like a nice mix of elements.

Umm... I do! ^^

How do you actually... play the game? Is it like sims-style where you are a benevolent deity overlooking and controlling a bunch of puppets, or are you following a single character?

Based on the information in this thread, I have no idea. >_<

And the big question - what kind of pricing model are you considering/implementing?

Good question! You control a single character. You can dress up this character, change its nose, make it bold etc. Also: hats!

You walk around the village talking with villagers, helping them out with little quests. There is also a small farm you have to work on to grow crops. Other things you can do is decorate the complete island and even your own house.

Because the game uses a real time 24 hour clock there will be special events on specific dates or times. So you might have to play this game in the evening to get a certain item. Or you will want to check the stock prices in the morning to see if there is any movement on the stock market.

If our latest game Ichi sells enough we might also add multiplayer. You can than visit eachothers village and play together. Or you can cut down all the trees and steal their crops.

p.s. Where is the touch arcade review for ichi?
