A paradisiacal simulation and management game .
Derek Hales works extra hours at his Metropolitan office and is already fed up. His eye catches an envelope at the Inbox folder. There’s a post stamp with a palm tree on it. He opens it. The letter says:
“You’re the sole heir/heiress of “Carpe Diem Boats”, a boating company that your uncle has left you in the tropical complex of Jo Jo islands”
He thinks about it for only a sec. A new life awaits him. He decides to take the plunge. He calls his girlfriend, Michelle Joyce, on the phone and asks her to pack their suitcases.
The next morning finds them both in the Jo Jo islands, in a swell sunrise setting, holding bags and watching the hydroplane leave. Finally, life is good. Or so it seems. Then, they spot a humble water taxi at the pier. The sign in front of it says: “Carpe Diem Boats”. This is what the uncle has left them! They laugh. It will be harder than they thought… But then again, this new life looks so promising. And the new life’s goal is clear again: to become the area’s main tycoon!
