GIP, Virtual Villagers
I've been playing Virtual Villagers, a lite sim game where you help a tribe of castaways survive on an island paradise.

You get to / have to teach them to do some of the basics of survival, including building huts, farming, and (really) breeding. Yep, that's right, your own little eugenics lab with a jaunty tropical soundtrack.

That's disturbing, but overall I'm digging the game.

This game completely sucked down over a week of my life as I obsessed over my brood. I had to start over a few times before I got the hang of it. Fun little game, wish it had a little more to it.

I'm doing what I can to keep myself pried away from it during the long stretches of waiting - I'm a little unfamiliar with games where you're not expected to play more than a few minutes a day.

That said, I've just (obscure for spoilers' sake) done the bit with the straight rocks, and I've got something like 42 villagers with around 20,000 food. Three more (expensive!) tech purchases to go, and something like six more puzzles to solve.
