“We've all been wondering what our little villagers have been up to these past months” said Arthur Humphrey, founder of Last Day of Work.“It appears that they have found some kind of a ruined city on another part of the island. I think they could use some help.”

The award-winning Virtual Villagers series is one of the most popular and best selling casual games in recent years, remaining on top-ten lists for months at a time. The games are a unique blend of simulation, adventure, and virtual pet. The game is set on the fictitious island of Isola, where a lost tribe has landed on its shores. As the village grows and prospers, the villagers become curious about their mysterious island home and the secrets it holds. Players guide the villagers past starvation and danger into a thriving prosperity, through exploration of the island and careful management of resources.
