They can't even survive one night alone?...

I downloaded this game called Virtual Villagers last night and started playing it before I went to bed. It’s one of those games that keeps playing even when you close it down. So I wake up this morning and check to see what happened and I get this message saying that they’re out of food and one of my villagers is dead and now he's decomposing. What’s up with that? Now I’m actually sitting here at work wondering if all my villagers are dying since I’m not there to teach them how to harvest crops or fish or something. That’s not a very fun game. It’s sort of stressing me out.

When I got home from work everyone had tetanus from some rusty tools in a box and no one would mate and then they all got old and died and I was left with one girl and a bunch of guys not trained to do anything. Then I tried to get the guys to mate with the girl before everyone died out and the game was all “She’s too young!” like I was a total perv or something. I finally just deleted the whole thing and went back to playing word games.

LOL! My daughter plays a video game that is kind of like that. It's called "Harvest Moon" and her people have to get jobs and fish for food and buy clothes and furniture! If they don't eat they die. The peripheral characters will move out of the village if you don't befriend them! It's a strange virtual world - LOL
