Virtual Families by Last Day Of Work






Quote:
Virtual Families is a casual family sim that runs in true real time. Adopt a little person from the thousands of choices of little people who live inside your iPhone. Encourage them to work in their chosen career to earn money for necessities and luxuries, help them choose a suitable mate, start and raise a family, let them kick back with a variety of leisure activities, and take care of and improve their home. Along the way, there will be many different random events to respond to, house malfunctions to repair, and mini-puzzles to solve, all of them adding an unexpected element to the daily routine. This is the same sensational game that became a smash Windows and Mac hit!

The game continues to progress in true real time, even when your iPhone is turned off, so don’t forget to check in regularly to care for your little people.

So ... half-way between The Sims and Little Computer People? I can dig that. Could be one to watch, anyway.

well, with just some very rough numbers...the diameter of that hose is a little smaller than the person laying down in the pic...so let's say if that guy is 6ft tall and the hose diameter is 5 feet, 5 X 3.14 = 15.7, round to 16, there looks to be around 6 visible loops that I can count on the hose so 6 X 16 is 96 feet just for the loops showing
