Guide a tribe of castaways

In the third chapter of this simulation series, you guide your tribe as it populates a new part of Isola.

Virtual Villagers offers you the chance to develop the skill sets of each and every one of your tribe members, as they grow up and become older.

Each tribe member has his own character and what he likes and dislikes. You will have to make the best of all of them to make sure the whole tribe survives and becomes stronger.

Throughout the game you will also be presented with a number of puzzles to solve. Winning tech points will improve your skills (leadership, restoration, alchemy, medicine and science).

If you are a big fan of simulation games and notably of The Sims series you will probably like this game. However, although the game offers enough help, the lack of clear objectives at the beginning might put off some users.

You will need a bit of patience before your tribe really starts developing.

Virtual Villagers 3 - The Secret City is faithful to other iterations of the series: good graphics, lots of puzzles and control over a number of characters.

Embark on a journey with a group of villagers in search of a new part of the island to populate. Land on the hidden shores of the northern side of Isola and explore what was once a secret city.

Find new sources of food to nourish your villagers and help them rebuild the remains of this mysterious city. Who lived here before? Where have they gone?
