Create your own civilization that will stand the test of time. Play Arrival: Village Kasike as the character 'Naniki', a woman far away from home and now the Kasike (chief) of a new tropical island village. Lead wisely and build a prosperous community in balance with "Atabei" (Mother Earth). But plan carefully lest a hurricane destroy all you have built . . . and your hungry villagers despair and leave your village. The challenge is yours: rise up and become a great Kasike! 

Meet the Taino people. The Taino were the original inhabitants of the Caribbean in the days before the conquistadors. Having "discovered" Columbus, the Taino and their thriving civilization introduced Europeans to rubber, hammocks, barbecues, and the word "hurricane". In Arrival: Village Kasike, a historically based, real time strategy sim, you'll be able to step back in time, and learn of the Taino ways. If you guide Naniki well, you will build a large, vibrant Taino community that retains its proper "nakan" (balance).

With a lush 3-D world, realistic buildings, farms and tools at your disposal, and a community to take charge of, Arrival: Village Kasike allows you to experience a piece of forgotten history and to control all of the action.
