“Most computer games eventually lose their luster for players who reach some prescribed goal. Even FarmVille average usage is starting to shrink,” stated Jeff Wells, Funium CEO. “Conversely, Family Village engages players with not only Facebook friends, but living relatives in a quest to discover their ancestors and family history.”
While players have fun building fortune, houses, businesses, immigrating family members, and assigning jobs, Family Village matches inputted data with relevant real-world documents about the users’ living and deceased relatives such as census records, newspaper articles, marriage records, and other documents. Players can then examine the records, print them, or store them in their personal game library.
