Last Day of Work — makers of Fish Tycoon — have released Virtual Villagers, a village simulation game for the Mac. It costs $19.95 and a demo version is available for download.
In Virtual Villagers, you care for and nurture a tribe of little people, teaching them the basics of survival along the way. You help them tend to their food and housing, developing technologies and medicine that will help them fight diseases. Along the way, the displaced tribe learns more about their island home and its secrets, restoring it along the way.
The game features hundreds of unique and customizable villagers, unique and unpredictable “Island Events” to keep you guessing, the ability to breed your own unique villagers and more.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.2 or later, 96MB RAM, 32MB VRAM and 20MB hard disk space.
