Description of Holiday Island
This is a neat "light" Windows 95 sim that, had it been published by Maxis, would certainly be titled "SimResort" As an Entrepreneur who's just been given the right to develop a virgin island, commercialize it to death with beach resorts, camping grounds, and other structures.
This is not SimIsle, so you don't have to worry about damaging the island's ecosystems ;) Great attention to detail-- you can even rent out deck chairs and umbrella. This game is an effort of a few talented designers that should have been spotted by big-name publisher (like SimTower before it).

I've managed to get this game running on a virtual machine inside Windows 10 by using HashiCorp's Vagrant software. You can use the Windows 95 public box called "danimaetrix/windows-95".

I have always adored this game since I was a child. Can anybody please help me install this game. Just like everyone else, I'm using a Windows 10. I tried downloading both versions available on this website. I also tried using DOSbox but I'm not sure how to do it. The command just says "needs Windows...". I tried using Oracle VM and was able to install Windows XP but I couldn't upload the ISO file as though a virtual CD so I can install it. HEEEEEELP!!!!!

Guys, make sure you check out Holiday World, too, as it's like this game's spiritual successor. You can download it from this site.

For all that struggle to get this one running on Win 10... I had best success with a Windows XP-VM. Mine is in Virtual Box, but I guess something else might work too.
