If you killed off your Neopet, maybe this game isn't for you.
The idea behind Virtual Villagers is basically the same; If you forget for a few days you might come back to skeletons. Yew.
The premise is simple and the game is designed so you can play just a few minutes a day, if you wish. You're given some shipwrecked, helpless people on a desert island and you have to teach them to farm and fish, build huts etc. The fun is in watching them grow up and "marry" (the boy kisses the girl and she goes in the hut and comes out carrying a baby" -- that's JUST how I explained sex to my daughter).
You can get it for 20 bucks for your computer or your Nintendo DS.
Download it from RealArcade.com or anywhere games are sold.
