SAN FRANCISCO — Last Day of Work, a top producer of real-time games and simulations for handheld devices, has released its new “Village Sim” game to the Palm OS platform. Village Sim, the company’s first product in almost five months, continues the long tradition of life-simulators and true real-time games that continue to play even when the device is turned off.
Village Sim is a village simulator where you care for and nurture a displaced tribe of little people by teaching them the basics of survival. The object of the game is to grow a small village in your Palm OS device: they have food needs, housing needs, technologies to research and diseases to fight! As the village grows and prospers, the villagers become curious about their mysterious island home and the secrets it holds. Aside from guiding the villagers’ day-to-day lives, they player helps them to explore and restore the island.
Unique among games for mobile devices is the “real-time” nature of growing a virtual tribe in your handheld device. Unless a player pauses the game, villagers will continue to live and prosper, or sicken and die, depending on how often the player monitors and takes care of the people in the village.
“We are very excited to launch Village Sim on the Palm OS platform. We hope to please our existing fans with another complex life simulation game, while exploring some new game ideas outside of our traditional breeding sims, like Fish Tycoon and Plant Tycoon.” said Arthur Humphrey, Last Day of Work’s CEO.
