Welcome to Afterlife, the world building simulation that lets you create the hereafter in the here and now. Possessed of an unearthly sense of humor, it all begins in a god knows where galaxy.

Creatures is a series of artificial-life simulation games by Creature Labs. The goal of the games is to create a thriving population of Norns - little furry animals - and keep them safe and well. Unlike other games though, each Norn has its own fully mapped DNA sequence, defining physical appearance, personality, and capabilities, just like a real living creature. The worlds they inhabit are made up of individual interactive agents. There are many fan sites on the Internet, where you can find Norns and other Creatures to download, as well as new agents. For more on Creatures and the online Creatures Community, click here.

As the newly installed dictator of an obscure Caribbean island, build a path of progress for a nation mired in poverty, civil unrest and infighting. Oh, and uhh...stash a few million in your Swiss bank account just in case you need to take early retirement.

Tropico takes the addictive building-oriented gameplay of hits such as SimCity 3000 and Railroad Tycoon 2, combined with a healthy dose of Latin American political intrigue, and bundles it up in an easy-to-learn, hard to master, utterly addictive package.

Tropico is first and foremost a builder. Tropico provides over 100 structures to build, from hotels and spas for tourists to banana groves, sugar plantations and copper mines for food and basic exports, to rum distilleries and cigar factories for basic industry. Industry, mining, agriculture, or tourism, you choose to shape the economy to your vision. And don't let your lust for Yanqui dollars overcome your concern for the plight of your people. (or they'll overcome your palace guards and teach you a lesson in mob justice) As a precaution against such unpleasantness, may we suggest building the secret police headquarters for ferreting out and re-educating your misinformed dissidents?

Your island's inhabitants are fleshed out individuals, most of whom support you as their leader (at least initially). They go about their daily business striving for happiness under your enlightened rule. They have homes, jobs and identities, and they like being safe, well-fed, employed and spiritually enriched. Plan your growth well, and you'll have plenty of money to buy your people’s favor. Plan your growth poorly, and, well, there's always martial law...
