The leading publisher of hi-quality, addictive adventure and strategy games for iOS, Android, Mac, Kindle Fire and PC.

What: The free-to-play Virtual City Playground is live now, December 15, 2011, on the Mac App Store.

Virtual City Playground is the free follow-up to G5 Entertainment's Virtual City, keeping many of the first game's basic concepts, but adding in a new style of gameplay that will be familiar to players of games like Cityville. The game has won the hearts of millions of players world wide and topped all major casual game charts.

In this "Sim City"-esque game, your goal is to build and grow the prosperous city of your dreams. The game is in-depth and enjoyable while lacking the complexity of similar simulation city builders which hinders the enjoyment of such time management games. Virtual City Playground fills a noticeable gap in the city-builder genre on Mac.

Unleash your inner mayor – build anything you wish and everything that makes your citizens happier: dwelling houses, industrial buildings, shopping malls, places of entertainment... Make even your most ambitious dreams a reality! The game comes with new quests and winter-related content that will add holiday spirit to the gameplay.
