I have played this game several times now, and always find new and interesting things. it is challenging enough to keep your interest, yet easy enough for young kids to enjoy as well .Unlike virtual villagers, I love that the babies are walking instantly and the mother can go right back to work! I'm hoping that the developers will come out with a sequel, and add new challenges such as building a hospital, a school, and a nursery for the babies to play in until they are old enough to work the island. I would recommend this to all who enjoy the virtual games!!

LOVED this game
just a fun slow paced game to enjoy and i thought it was very cute with making babies.. i kept trying to make smarter and smarter ones lol , watching the first ones grow old then have graves for them while your smarter children grow up and take over. overall great game to play..stuff to build and things to do.

better than virtual villagers
First of all in regards to all those reviews that mention their tribe dying off overnight, I guess those players didn't realise that you can actually set the game to 'pause' when you turn your computer off# That means your tribe freezes in time and nobody ages or dies while you're away# The game automatically resumes when you continue playing#
The people look more realistic than in the virtual villagers series and their movements are also more fluid# The mysteries are not easy to solve, I had to look up cheats for that# I like that fact that you can place your buildings wherever you like, whenever you like, providing you have resources#
I like the fact that you know straight away the gender of your new babies as well as the fact that the mother can resume working straight away as opposed to having to wait two island years like in virtual villagers# Instead, the babies toddle after their mothers until they turn three, which is kinda cute#
Being able to move to other islands adds a new twist, and although all islands are similar in set up, their shape is differect each time and sometimes you can even get a twin island#
I would have liked to see the villagers have more food sources than just fishing and farming, and also to see them interact with each other from time to time, like in virtual villagers#
I find it a bit silly that the villagers can starve to death despite having plenty of food in storage, just because they run out of wood, as they need the wood to fuel the fire to cook their food# No wood=no fire=starvation. But that could really only happen if you go away for a while and leave no trees checked to be harvested.
This is an easy game to continue. I've played this game on and off for several years now and I've never had a tribe die on me. All of my countless villagers have died of old age, except one who for some unknown reason stood beside a food storgage shed without actually eating and I didn't notice it until it was too late. This villagers died of starvation. Yes, she was blonde. lol
I have learned that villagers start dying of old age from age 68 upwards. My oldest person to die was 83!
A fun game for adults and kids alike.

easy for me but a great game for kids who can't read
i thought this game was really cute, because when ever you dropped a baby in the water, it's head would bob up. i also thought this game was for people all ages because how the game read to you on what you had to do

I'm not very good at 'Virtual' type games. This is not to say I don't like them, I do, I'm just not very good at them. This one, however, I seem to be able to play and make some progress. It's not too busy. As mentioned the characters actually do what you start them doing. They can develop multiple skills too over time if you have them doing different things. So, if Sally's a builder, and you put her on a building you'd like to see constructed, she'll start building. Now, she may be sleeping if you check up on her, or eating, or getting 'private' with Henry heh heh but you know, when she's done she'll go back to building. If you later put her on research she'll in time have her strengths in building and also in research. If she has good mental aptitude and strength, she can become a very resourceful individual.
The other thing is that it promises to be a very versatile game. I just gt it today after trying the demo but here's the thing. These guys are on an island but there are billions of islands! No really, billions as in 1X10^9. They're numbered, My island is 2 billion and something. A billion. If I counted each island at the rate of one a second 24/7 it would take me about 32 years to count just one billion islands, they have, well, at least more than 2 billion islands. No, I don't know how that's possible but it means in my lifetime I would not be able to explore all those islands and I plan on living to be an old man! So that's cool. With research you learn new technologies and I guess (remember I just started) you can eventuallly build a boat and go to new islands.
I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars because I \'ve just started playing it.That's probably not fair but until I know it better I can't justify 5 stars. (Also I'm more a fish, plant tycoon guy rather than a virtual guy) So far though it's looking to go in that direction. So if the other virtual games have left you cold you might try this one. I got babies everywhere and one day plan on having a fleet of ships exploring ,well, a couple hundred islands. By the way the islands are numbered and you can select a number. This might be good for comparing notes in a forum or something. Billions of islands ... jeeze ...

Too Easy for me
At first, it was fun, but the options were limited and not very creative. It did get to be too repetitive for me. Sorry, I had hoped for much more challenge, like in another "tribal/Villagers" game. You might like it, but it wan't my cup of tea.

Good but nothing new.
There are a lot of Tribes games and My tribe is one of the better, but I wouldn't call it especially good. The graphics were fine and the music was quite pleasant. Another thing I found entertaining was the character development trough out the game teaching them to specialize in different things. I could never hold the tribe for long thought. Since I get pretty busy it would happen that I wouldn't play the game for a few days and since they continue to work and grow while your gone my tribe would eventually seize to exist. Creating a new tribe again and again from the start would get pretty bothersome and tiring. Its not a bad game and it can be quite fun, but I've stopped playing it for awhile now.

Can no longer play this beloved game
I played this game off and on for a couple of years. I loved it. I would still love it... if the developer would upgrade it for most current Mac OS. Do NOT buy this if you have upgraded your Mac in the past several years... since 2010 or 11.
Very sad. I keep waiting to download an upgraded version, but apparently... it is money I spent on a game I cannot play.
Recommend ONLY if you have an OLD MAC or a pc
