Virtual Families

Virtual Families is the latest virtual life simulation game released by Last Day of Work, the team behind the very popular Virtual Villagers series,  Plant Tycoon and Fish Tycoon.

In the game, players adopt a character who then begins a life: choosing if they want to marry, deciding whether to have children, furthering their career, all with the help and guidance of the player.

Virtual Families focuses on the true aspects that make a family unique, from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows, displaying life in all its drama and glory.

Virtual Families runs in true real-time, meaning that when the player’s computer is shut off, the game continues to progress, with the family members evolving and growing, based on what the player has taught them, even when no one is interacting with them. The game is set in bucolic suburbia and features a gorgeous hand-drawn scrolling map with a house and garden. It employs sophisticated artificial-intelligence and a varied selection of characters with quirky personalities to adopt and take care of.

There are various hurdles that appear throughout Virtual Families, from moral dilemmas – including whether or not to keep a package that was inadvertently delivered to your home, or if you should send your daughter to Paris for a modeling contract – to real-life situations such as illness, allergies, promotions and chores. Also included along the way are mini-puzzles, where family members have to find hidden objects throughout their home and garden, and trophies that can be acquired after reaching various goals throughout their journey.

  • Runs in true real-time.
  • Unique and fascinating adoptees from 1000’s of combinations.
  • Fully trainable people: shape/adapt their personalities through praising and scolding!
  • Dynamic illness system. Play doctor!
  • Over 100 trophies.
  • Hidden puzzles around the house.
  • Email ‘events’ and other random, unpredictable occurrences.
  • Weather, day/night cycles (synchronized to the player’s system clock, so it is nighttime in the game when it is nighttime where you are).

    • GRR says:

      you have to open up the tool shed by dragging a member of the family to the sandbox–there’s a doorknob there.that member will return it to the shed doors.then wait until that member is done inserting the doorknob to the shed.use the same member to drag to the doormat on the floor right where they first came after you adopted them–the opening before they come into the house.then they’ll use the key under the doormat to open the shed door.finally you use the same member to drag them to the fire extinguisher and they’ll use it for the fire.

    how do i get the rocket scientist to work?

    • Lucy says:

      You give the child 2-3 encyclopedias to read as a child. So make sure to check the store often for them!

  12. jill says:

    I have the mobile version from the droid market place. When I go to the store it will only let me have food. When I click on anything else it says I can only get these other items if I use the full pc version. Thus, the game, I assume can not actually be played on my droid.
    Is this correct? Please correct me if this is wrong. Why would they place the game on the droid marketplace if it can not be played on mobile? The player needs to be able to buy things other than food or you can not expect real game play.
    Looks like a fun game, I’d like to play. Am I doing something wrong? Is anyone out their playing mobile on droid? If so can you suggest a solution to my problem?
    Thank you

    • tina says:

      Jill there is a trick in the mobile one. you have to click on the food hit cancel. then click on the item you want when it says you cant buy it click ok and click on it again. keep doing this and you will buy what you want in the end sometimes it takes a while other times its one the first few times.
