Go to the Menu Screen. Go to Options and set Game Speed to Paused, set Difficulty to Easy, then click Done.

Go to Start Over until you have 7 Villagers that are 4 women, 2 men, a child, and the Builder is a man. Place the Builder on the Well. Place the other man (Farmer) on the Berry Bush. Place 3 women (Scientists) on the Research Bench. Place the youngest woman (Doctor/Parent) on the Green Strange Plant. Go to Menu. Go to Options, set Game Speed to 2x Speed, click Done. Spoiler Click Play, the villagers will begin their tasks. They may fail a few times, begin doing laundry, or become curious about other village features, so you will have to replace them at their tasks when they walk away. When any milestone is reached or a good event happens, all the villagers will go to celebrate, so when the Builder is done clearing the well all the villagers will leave their tasks and go to the well to celebrate, and you must replace them to their tasks. Spoiler Place the Farmer back on the Berry Bush. Place the 3 Scientists back on the Research Bench. Place the Builder on the New Hut site, you can not make a baby until the New Hut is complete. When the Doctor finishes studying Green Strange Plant, place her on the Healing Cactus, Strange Lily, and Rare Rose until all the plants have been understood. Any order will work. When all medical plants have been studied there will be another celebration and you will have to replace your workers to their tasks. Place the Farmer back on the Berry Bush. Place the Builder back on the New Hut. Place all 3 women Scientists and the Doctor/Parent on the Research Bench. Spoiler The Scientists will twitch when the current portion of research is complete, and they will either walk away (failed research) or points will be added to your Tech Points. Either way, as soon as they twitch you can pick them up and place them on the Research Bench again to start their next experiment. This will add Tech Points at the fastest possible rate, and you should have enough points to buy the next level of Farming while still having around 1000 berries on the Berry Bush,

assuming that your Farmer does not like Running. Also, there is an audio cue which sounds like bamboo chimes when the Scientists begin research and complete research. Spoiler When your Scientists have gained 6000 Tech Points, go to Tech screen and purchase Level 2 Farming. This allows your Farmer to plant the Field, (planting the Field also requires that the Well has been cleared) and he will stop foraging the Berry Bush, saving the berries in case of an unfortunate event such as a Typhoon which wipes out all of the food in the Food Bin. Spoiler Place the Farmer on the Field. Keep the Scientists researching until you can buy the next level of Construction. When the Builder has completed the New Hut, place him on the debris on the beach. Once the New Hut is complete you will need to begin breeding in order to have a population to carry on when your original 7 villagers die. The villager that you drop on another villager is the one who receives the breeding points and becomes a breeder. A breeder initiates breeding with all members of the opposite sex. Spoiler If your breeder is a male, all 4 women will end up with babies and no research will continue until they are done caring for the babies, which takes around 2 hours, until the baby is 2 years old, and the male breeder will breed with all 4 women again. A female breeder will initiate breeding with any man , and only she will have a baby, so you have much more control over breeding and gaining tech points with a female breeder. A villager may not breed until they are 20 years old. Choose the youngest woman (20 or older) to be your breeder. Drop her on a man. The man may run away a few times, just bring him back and keep dropping the woman on him until they kiss. Once they kiss, your population will increase if a baby has been made. If your population does not increase, pick up the woman and drop her on the man again until your population does increase. You do not have to wait for them to go indoors, if a baby is made it will show in the population count as soon as the kiss happens. Continually breeding her will give you a steady supply of villagers. Note: When your breeder self initiates breeding it will cause her chosen mate to stop work and wait for her embrace. When the Builder completes clearing the debris from the beach, and you have bought Level 2 Construction:

Spoiler place him on the pile of rocks at the top of the Lagoon to clear it. When the Lagoon is cleared: Spoiler place a villager on the Patch Of Strange Dead Flowers, the villager will water the Patch from the Lagoon and create the Garden. When one of your Scientists reaches the title Master Scientist: Spoiler place her on the Double Hut to create the School. Once the School is established, children will be born with some skills. When your first villager dies: Spoiler buy Level 2 Spirituality, then drop any adult villager in the Clearing to create the Graveyard, or Burial Ground. When you have purchased Level 3 Farming: Spoiler place a Master Farmer in the Lagoon to catch the Magic Fish Of Fertility. Note: The Magic Fish is a Greenfin Spotanus, the same Magic Fish Of Fertility in Fish Tycoon ;) When you have purchased Level 3 Spirituality: Spoiler place a Builder on the Strangely Straight Rocks to build the Temple. When you have purchased Level 3 Science: Spoiler place a Builder on the Large Rock to create the Idol. When you have purchased Level 3 in 6 Tech areas:

Spoiler place a Builder on the beach directly South of the Food Bin and directly West of the Temple to uncover the Buried Treasure. When you have purchased Level 3 Fertility: Spoiler place a mother with a baby in the Lagoon to create the Golden Child. The remaining Puzzles are dependent on the Golden Child. Notes on the Golden Child: Spoiler The Golden Child never gets sick or dies. You can not kill him, no matter how much you may want to He never ages, he never grows up, he never changes appearance from a toddler. You can not force him to perform his tasks, he does them all on his own. Shortly after birth, he will move the boulder and you can place a villager into the cave to see a teaser for the next chapter. The Golden Child is said to create the Garden as well as move the Boulder, but by the time there is enough tech points to buy level 3 Fertility, my villagers have already watered the Garden into bloom, so I myself have not witnessed the Golden Child creating the Garden. To date I have been unable to get him to do the Butterflies or the Strange Fruitless Plant, in fact, it seems that the entire game there is a flock of Butterflies on the screen, and as soon as the Golden Child appears, the butterflies vanish.. The Golden Child also makes berries on the Berry Bush, restores the crops in the Field, and makes food in the Food Bin. He also make parties which cause all villagers to leave work and join him in dancing. And he can walk on water. Imagine that. ;) Other Notes: Spoiler Occasionally you will see a Mushroom pop up, place a child on the mushroom and he will pick it up and take it to the Food Bin. Brown Mushrooms are 8 food, Orange Mushrooms are 45 food. Fish are 9 food, Crabs are 55 food. Children can not swim. Maximum number of villagers appears to be 90, although some screen shots seem to show over 300 villagers. If this is actually possible, I wish I knew how to do it. Spoiler

Occasionally you will have a villager whose dislikes conflict with their job, like a builder who hates driftwood will take forever to clear the beach, and when you try to start him to the task he stands there and does nothing for a very long time. When this happens, I have found it to be more expedient to restart the village. Conversely, you will sometimes have a villager whose likes compliment their job, such as a Builder who likes Running, so can complete the New Hut in less time than usual. Occasionally you will find items washed up on the beach. Among these there may be: Spoiler Brass Compass - Letting researchers have it improves skill somehow. Black pearl - Sharing makes your villagers happy. Badly weathered crate - Rusty tools, adds 1000tech points, makes some villagers ill Crate with 1, 2, or 3 babies in it - Adds to Population. Crate with juicy steaks - Adds 1500 food. Crate of golden ripe bananas - Adds 1000 food Crate with well preserved tools - Adds 1000 Tech Points. Crate of rats - Causes injury and disease. Crate of diapers.. Vial of blue liquid - Causes illness or lowers skill. Vial of red liquid - Alters appearance. Vial of watery fizzy liquid - Lowers skill. Other Events: Spoiler Isola Day Celebration - Dancing and feasts! Big Wave - Puts debris on beach that must be cleared by builder. Honeybees - Pollinate Berry Bush and make it thrive. Humid weather molds food - Removing moldy pieces saves some food, makes some villagers sick. Measles Epidemic - Makes children sick. Monkey eating mushroom - Trying the mushroom allows adults to pick mushrooms? Monkey hiding large cache of bananas - Adds 600 food. Monkey ransacks research table - Lose 9000 tech points. Monkey stealing food - Allowing it to steal food results in better healing. Moth in cocoon - Helping moth kills it. Plague of Locusts - Eats all your crops. Ripe Red Berries - Eating them kills villager instantly. Oops Shipwreck - Blocks beach access, again, and debris must be cleared from beach by a Builder, again. Stranded whale - Harvesting the whale adds 1000 food. South Wind - Withers berries, scorches crops and damages food in Food Bin.

Troubled Child - Allowing child to try work increases childs skill Typhoon - Destroys all food in the Food Bin. Authors Note: This walkthrough was created by restarting my game each time I realized I had made a mistake, or had a question which could only be answered by restarting the game and following specific parameters. I am not certain if trying the mushroom allows your adult villagers to pick the mushrooms, as I didnt think of trying it until after I had deleted that game, but the text for it strongly suggested that this was the case. If it happens to me again I will be sure to update the walkthrough. [Edit: Thanks Cathy for the extensive walkthrough! Spoiler tags have been added to make it take up a bit less space :) -Harukio] Posted by: Cathy | July 22, 2007 3:17 PM
