  • AYITI - The Cost Of Life

    Point & Click game from UNICEF
    The Guinard family of five is struggling to get by in rural Haiti ("Ayiti" in Haitian Creole). The father, Jean, and mother, Marie are doing their best to give their teenage son and daughter, Patrick and Jacquline, and their little boy, Yves, the best life possible.

    The family has a simple home and a farm that earns them a little money. Jean and Marie have very little education, but they're working to help their kids get an education and improve their chances for a comfortable life.

    There are a few international NGOs (non-government organizations) trying to help members of the impoverished community, but they need volunteers to get any major project off the ground.

    The Guinard family faces some difficult challenges resulting from poverty, severe weather, and even potential violence. But if they're careful and lucky, they may have a chance at a better life.

    You have four years to help the Guinard family as they confront the "cost of life." Good luck!

            This game is pathetically addicting. My friend and I were on the phone playing it for two hours. Then I went to her house and we played it. It's a sick sort of obsession.

            Unfortunately I always end up killing someone
            however she never does

            I have played over a hundred times and learned some tricks
            i don't know if they would count as "spoilers" as much as helping?
            just advice? so i won't post them until I am sure they aren't spoilers.

              You can always share the tricks Post them in spoiler tags. I have been playing this game everyday and I could really use some good tricks.

                  Upgrade the living conditions to "Good" immediately and buy the home remedy every season and their health will remain constant. I played an entire game w/out sending one of them to the clinic this way.
                  Work for about half of the first year with noone in school, and then devote all of the education to one family member (I've had the most luck letting the older girl go to school full time).
                  Get a bike as soon as possible. You can reduce time in school if you buy books and a radio. The chickens also come in handy after you lose one income with someone in school.

                            THIS CONTAINS SPOILERS!!!!

                            None of my people have ever died. It's fairly easy. Here are my tried and true methods...

                            ...Well, that's all I can think of at the moment. I'll add to the list if I remember something. I hope this helps!!!
