Have you ever noticed how you can create an elaborate and intricate family tree, yet nothing in the Sims world ever seems to change? My intentions with this story has been to see a small family grow and evolve with each other over the passing of time. A Heart Less Fortunate begins with Elizabeth Tyler, a young “unhappily unmarried” woman of twenty-two. Her family had just relocated from the busy, bustling town of London, England to the quiet and tranquil island paradise of Threstle Island. It follows the Tyler family over a span of 2 centuries beginning in the early 20th century and ending in the late 21st century. Come take a ride through history in this depiction of a family who has seen grief and struggle, as well as happiness and unwavering joy. As told to you through The Sims 3.
