Artist Colony is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish they would make more games like this Amazing story and leveling the characters was so much fun. I wish they made more of this. I could also go for some more Virtual villagers and diner dash. So tired of all the hidden object games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not a fast game but a fun game I've been a professional artist for over 20 years so this game was strange for me to play. The idea of a colony full of artists just doing art and selling different types of art depending on what their talents are was an interesting escape from the reality of my life as an artist (which is focused more on business than art - this game is the opposite). It's a slower type of game, not fast-paced so I think people who like to sink into a story line and not feel rushed would really love this game. It has a relaxed atmosphere full of unique characters

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A game I keep coming back to I have owned this game for a long time and have completed it a few times. It is one of those games you keep coming back to. The story is engaging and the characters are easy to love. I love that there are so many aspects to the game! You can repair and clean in the time management fashion, take care of your people like in a sim game, and even sell your masterpieces. If you have not tried it yet, you should =)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make Part Two This game brought all manner of gaming. I haven't seen or played a game like it since. We are long overdue for the second installment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game I enjoyed this game. I do have a bigfish complaint though. I looked through the similar games bigfish offered and they weren't even close. What do you use for your criteria of similar, that they're all on bigfish? Back to the game, another game that is similar is "buried in time". If anyone has games that really are similar let me know please.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Very high quality, fab graphics and interesting storyline. Might be a bit repetitive but overall I enjoyed it very much. Storyline is quite original, not your average time management game and that's a plus for me personally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a time management game I can play! :-) How many artists you manage is up to you :-) At first you only have 2 artists and after awhile 2 more will arrive. When YOU decide to upgrade the Residence Hall for 10, 15, and then 25 artists, they will arrive in groups of 2 or 3. I love this because it allows me time to get used to managing the artists. I am happy that they seem motivated to take care of some of their needs. It's a lovely game! I really enjoy the changing seasons. I love the little touches like having them relax on a picnic blanket or while fishing. They'll happily gaze at ponds, pretty flowers, and someone's artwork which will inspire them to create their own masterpieces. I love being able to pause the game with the Esc button when other things need my attention. ;-) I dislike the limit of masterpieces held in the gallery which forces me to sell artwork much cheaper than it's worth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Of My Favorites! This is hands down on of my favorite games. I haven't bought it yet, but I do plan to. It's a bit silly, as it's a lot of point and click, but it's a ton of fun! You direct a colony of artists (my dream place to live) to clean up this disheveled art colony some of their parents had made. I was really bummed when the trial ran out. This is a spectacular game to zone out with. Very fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Want More! I really enjoy this game. I have played it at least three different times and I still love it. It's an interesting take on a time management game. You get to focus on your little people more and it's fun to see what art they come up with. The story is simple but interesting and I hope this company makes more of these games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A High Quality Game ! What an amazing game to play ! Story, graphics, music, gameplay everyting is perfect. This is not a "classic" management game. You have to take your time and enjoy the moment. So it's not for all kind of gamers. Some could find it slow or repetitive so beware...For myself i completely fell for it. A time to relax, no hard thought, no puzzle and a wink to the seventees ;O)
