Mobile version of hit Facebook game allows players to take their villages wherever they go
Manchester UK, 23rd October 2013 – Playdemic has launched a mobile version of their Facebook hit Village Life, creating a full cross-platform experience to allow players to look after their villagers on Facebook, iPhone and iPad.
Village Life on Facebook has over 1million monthly active players worldwide and since its launch in December 2012 has had over 17 million installs, becoming one of the top grossing games on Facebook. Playdemic hope the mobile version will prove to be a similar hit on the App Store.
In Village Life, players nurture their villagers from the moment they are born, taking care of their needs and guiding them through life’s big events including first date, marriage, childbirth and old age. In a uniquely social twist, Village Life is the first social game where characters look to have relationships and children with other players’ villagers, inheriting physical attributes and skills from their parents.
Ian Livingstone CBE, Chairman of Playdemic said: "Village Life has enjoyed great success on Facebook. More recently, a growing number of fans have been asking to play the game on their mobile devices as well as on Facebook. So I’m delighted to announce they can now play Village Life on both platforms. We are extremely excited about bringing Village Life to a whole new mobile audience.”
