(PRWEB) May 24, 2005 -- Last Day of Work Launches Village Sim Game for Palm Powered Devices at PalmSource Mobile Summit & DevCon 2005
SAN JOSE, Calif., PalmSource Mobile Summit & DevCon, May 24, 2005 Last Day of Work, a top producer of real-time games and simulations for mobile devices, today announced Village Sim, a real-time simulator game, for Palm Powered™ mobile devices and smartphones. Village Sim continues LDW’s long tradition of life-simulators and true real-time games that keep on playing even if the device is turned off.

Village Sim allows a player to care for and nurture a displaced tribe of people by teaching them the basics of survival. Players will test their ability to help a small village live and prosper as they monitor the needs of the villagers throughout the day. Do the villagers need food, housing, or technology to help ward off disease? As the villagers become curious about the mysteries of their tropical home, the player helps them explore and restore their island oasis by guiding their day-to-day lives. However, if a player turns off their device, or sets it aside for too long, sickness and death can sweep through the village. Only by setting this real-time game to pause can the player truly make time stand still.

“Taking advantage of the superior graphics and multimedia capabilities of Palm OS, Village Sim brings an innovative and highly interactive gaming experience to users of Palm Powered devices and smartphones,” said Larry Berkin, director of developer marketing, PalmSource. “Last Day of Work’s Village Sim creates an entertaining and addictive environment for the user through life simulation and true real-time game play.”

The real-time feature of Village Sim is unique among games for mobile devices, unlike other games for mobile devices and smartphones where the action stops or pauses when powered off.

"We are very excited to launch Village Sim on Palm OS. We hope to please our existing fans with another complex life simulation game, while exploring some new game ideas outside our traditional breeding sims like Fish Tycoon and Plant Tycoon," said Arthur Humphrey, Last Day of Work chief executive.

Village Sim is available at www.LDW.com for $19.95. A free 30-day trial version is also available for download. Printable artwork is at www.ldwsoftware.com/vs_mag_screenshots.zip
Evaluation copies are available upon request.
