Virtual Villagers arrives
Aspyr Media today announced that Virtual Villagers for Mac has hit store shelves throughout North America. The new title, licensed by Big Fish Games, portrays a setting where poor villagers wash up on shore after surviving a horrific volcanic eruption. Players must guide the villagers in learning how to survive as they become farmers, builders, scientists, parents, and more to thrive on their new island. The real-time simulation game features hundreds of unique villagers, challenging players to uncover mysteries while playing. Virtual Villagers is available through Aspyr's website for $30, and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later to play.
Aspyr today also announced that Big Fish Games' Travelogue 360: Paris for Mac arrived on retail shelves. Players scour some of the world's most famous locations in Paris for souvenirs as they prepare for an upcoming article in Travelogue 360 magazine.
"Locate items hidden in 3-Dimensional views of the Eiffel Tower, down the Champs Elysees, under the Arc d'Triomphe, and others of Paris' most beloved landmarks. Find your own Paris in this incredible voyage."
The game features 22 locales, "Explorer" as well as "Tourist" modes, thousands of souvenirs to find, and fun facts players can learn along the way.
Travelogue 360: Paris is available for $30, also requiring Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.
