    Virtual Families's review

    Published: 2013-12-17, by Peter Warrior.

    Adopt virtual humans and help them to raise a functional family

    • There's irony in it
    • Neat user interface
    • It's quite odd if you think about it
    • It might be odder, tone is too ambivalent

    "Little House on the Prairie simulator"

    If we had to summarize this game in a single sentence, it would be something like "it's like the Sims, but you can't make them make out with each other".

    Yes, this might discourage many potential users, but also be an interesting allure for kids not interested in kisses and adults not interested in kids playing games where kisses and timely pixelations in the shower are involved.

    This doesn't mean this game is free of controversy: some choices aren't ethical at all, and some events and behaviors are openly sexist. Virtual Families are just that, "virtual", and the ending result is a fun and interesting game in its very own way, but perhaps not by the reasons you have in mind. In the end, Virtual Families is a sort of condescending "random sims go to Utah, occupy the haunted house at the end of the town and decide to form a family", a management game ruled by its own rules far from logic and reason.

    It's so odd it must be great to give it a go, and that's surely the reason of more than a million downloads so far. People like to play God, but it's even better if it doesn't make sense at all.

    I think it is good way to pass time. But I noticed that it had been glitching when wanting to purchase upgraded working area. Money you earn got deducted yet it still did not upgrade the working areas. In the store it still says the money amount to purchase it. 5k or 10k. I think it is unfair for players.

    So I've been playing this game for a week or two now and my collection for coins and the picture pieces were almost done but when I opened my game today my whole collection was erased which is weird because my family history is all there everything else was fine but collection was completely erased I worked hard and played for a while for my collection. Very disappointing ?
