Castaway Videos
It's not new that before the release of a Sims game EA publishes producer walkthrough videos. The Sims 2 Castaway is no exception, as videos have been posted for the Wii and DS versions. In the first, senior producer Ben Bell guides you through the basics of the game, in which a group of Sims gets shipwrecked on a deserted island. You start off by creating your crew of Sims. A tropical storm will separate the Sims, without anything available. As you reunite your crew, all Sims will become playable. The crafting system allows you to create anything necessary to build up your Sims' settlement. You'll also notice that the island has exotic wildlife living on it, which can help Sims in gathering resources and more. The video also gives some hints to some of the world-changing secrets on the island. In fact, it may be possible to leave the island, or stay where you are. As repeated many times in the movie, it's you who decides about how the story goes.

The DS walkthrough, again with Ben Bell and many of the same words. The game has three islands to discover, exploring its fauna, and in the end returning to civilization. The time of day will change, and there's weather as well. Interacting is done with just tapping the screen with the pen. You'll need to gather food from the sea or bugs from under rocks, through mini games. The fishing game is discussed more in-depth. Trading items with other castaways is also a possibility. Much like the Sims 2 on DS, you can paint or make music again as well, using the touch screen and the microphone. A hidden pirate ship, which you can find through hidden pieces of a map on the islands, will eventually lead you to escape. All Castaway games, excluding Castaway Stories, will be released this fall. The Castaway videos page has both videos in high and low quality.
