  • Summary: Inspire artists as they perfect their craft and restore and revive the ARTIST COLONY to its former glory!

    GAMEZEBO says "ARTIST COLONY is surprisingly deep and an enjoyable game and is well worth your time and money, especially if you're a fan of people simulations. The unique
    concept is well-designed and successfully executed, and should provide many engaging hours of fun."*

  1. 100
    It's been a long time since I was actually sucked into a video game storyline and cared about the characters and their fates.
  2. Artist Colony is a clever simulation game that will leave you wondering where your time has gone.
  3. 80
    A beautiful situational simulation title with vibrant visuals. While I thought the game could benefit from more features, including the ability to create your own in-game characters and overall gameplay length to be a little short coming in at just under 24 hours, I found that the attention to detail within the game, coupled with a great storyline and in-game control mechanics made Artist Colony an enjoyable experience.
  4. If you enjoy the Virtual Villagers games this is a nice addition to the slower paced time management games.
  5. Too safe to really be spectacular, Artist Colony is nonetheless a playable people simulator that comes with a unique setting, but fails to truly build on its early promise.
