Last Day of Work Announces Title of Their Highly Anticipated Family Simulation
San Francisco, Calif. — February 09, 2008 —Last Day of Work (LDW), the premiere independent casual game studio, today revealed their long-awaited new franchise for PC and Macintosh, called Virtual Families. Virtual Families simulates a small family, allowing the player to care for and nurture this family. As with all of LDW’s games this game runs in true real-time, both when the game is running as well as when it is not.
Built on the framework of the landmark casual game series Virtual Villagers, the game will feature a gorgeous hand-drawn scrolling map with a house and garden, sophisticated artificial-intelligence, and a charming and varied selection of families to customize and take care of.
“Our past successes have allowed us to really cut loose and make the game we always wanted to make.” said Arthur Humphrey, founder of Last Day of Work. “This game is not a trivial game, and it is not about micromanaging. It is about life, in all of its drama and glory.” Virtual Families has been in development since mid 2008 and will be available for download in Q1 of 2009 with an estimated price of $19.95.
