Happy Holidays from the LDW Team!

The full, original version of Virtual Families from your desktop PC or Mac is now here on the iPad!

Note from the developer: Version 1.1.1 is the latest of several significant updates to Virtual Families that have greatly improved stability and playability. Sorry we have had a few bumps in the road, but these games have a HUGE amount of content, much more than most iPhone/iPad games, and it is challenging to get everything packed into these beautiful, tiny devices. -Arthur PS. to the reviewer below, yes it makes me giggle to have 2-year olds sound like an 82 year old man when they cough.

Virtual Families is a casual family sim that runs in true real time, and now this top-selling simulation game for iPhone and iPod touch is available for the iPad. Adopt a little person from the thousands of choices of little people who live inside your iPad. Encourage them to work in their chosen career to earn money for necessities and luxuries, help them choose a suitable mate, start and raise a family, let them kick back with a variety of leisure activities, and take care of and improve their home. Along the way, there will be many different random events to respond to, house malfunctions to repair, and mini-puzzles to solve, all of them adding an unexpected element to the daily routine. This is the same sensational game that became a smash Windows and Mac hit!

The game continues to progress in true real time, even when your iPad is turned off, so don’t forget to check in regularly to care for your little people.

5/27/2010 Developer Note: This version of Virtual Families contains several fixes demanded by iTunes users, including savegame fixes, stability fixes, fixes for the lost TV remote, as well as fixes to makes sure the store inventory changes regularly. If you can't find the TV remote, tap the TV to move it to a more visible location. If the store is taking more than 4 hours to restock, tap the title at the top of the store screen.

These fixes will be incorporated in an update to the iPhone version shortly.

This game is awesome! I would recommend this to anyone who likes sims. This game is great for people of all ages. It has nice graphics and crisp clean features. The only issue with this game is that you play it in real time mode so your family members can die if you don't play it for a day. The upside to this is that your family members keep themselves happy and they make money when you are not playing. This is a fantastic game overall!

5/5 stars


You must get this game soooooo cool! One thing to add on: please make an update to connect with another family so we can visit each others home. Thanks.

Where is the duct tape?

I'm waiting to repair the wall and I need duct tape to fix the water pressure in the hose. I read some where that the store resets itself and the duct tape will be in one of the slots. I have been waiting for 4 days and no duct tape.
Also my little guy is sick. I've given him all of the medication in the store. Even the baby boost. But he is still sick.
Other then those 2 things, the game is fun. Addicting at first, but with those two issues, the game is not fun anymore.
I hope these two bugs are fixed.
