 Virtual_Villagers__The_Secret_CityVirtual Villagers: The Secret City - Survival Must Go On

 

Virtual Villagers: The Secret City is the third sequel of the saga from Last Day of Work. The game features some new twists taking you to a new place and telling you a new story but it still has its old well-known play mechanics.

 

 

You are to rebuild a city and grow and develop your tribe, being on a new part of the island.

 

Virtual_Villagers__The_Secret_CityThis time your tribe is in the new part of the island. It is a place that used to be a great city, but now it is in ruins and your tribe is rebuilding it discovering its mysteries. Apart from that, you still have your daily activities to do. Those include gathering food, eating, drinking, washing, reproducing and even dying.

 

You accomplish all these tasks in a familiar fashion. You just drop them to a certain place depending on what you want them to do. For fishing it will be the ocean, for example. These techniques are familiar and easy to do.

 

A fun thing is that if you leave them for some time, you'll find them working upon your returning. But if it's too long then you are risking to find them all dead from starvation.

 

You get really attached to your villagers taking care of all of them. Progress in one of the spheres like curing 30 villagers or mastering all five skills grants you an award.

 

 Virtual_Villagers__The_Secret_CityJust as in the predecessors of this game you can see the information about your villagers by clicking on them. This will give you his or her name, skill and action. If you need more stats you can go to the Details screen. There, you can find their age, gender, likes, dislikes, health, progress in the basic skills etc.

 

If you pay attention to all this information, you can't help getting attached to the villagers. And that is a sign of a good job done by the developers. There are also 16 puzzles to solve and real-time weather that includes clouds, fog, thunder, sunbeams and downpours that make everyone look for a shelter. What used to be an online leader board is now represented by the awards in the game. Ten in total they are given for some significant progress in some sphere like curing 30 villagers or mastering all five skills.

 

The sequel is no worse then its predecessors so make sure that it is you who controls the life of the village and not vice versa.
