We admit it. We are addicted to the two Virtual Villagers PC games, which originate from San Francisco’s LDW (Last Day of Work Games.) Executive Producer Carla Humphrey told us that there will be a third one out in beta in a month or so. This is one of those games that appears to be created for kids, for it is fairly straightforward, but we are not so sure. They wouldn’t have the patience.
Although you can speed up the scenarios, it is still played in real time, sort of. Twenty two minutes until the next crop is ready to harvest seems a dreadfully long time when your inhabitants are starving. The game can be played in Easy, Normal, and Difficult for leisure gaming or for those who like a challenge.
One of the most intriguing features is that the game can go on even when your computer is shut off unless you put it on pause. If you like RPGs, SIMs, or games that use your mind instead of just your trigger finger, read our review of the first two Villagers after the jump.

We love technology because it makes our lives a little easier and a lot more fun. But technology has its scary, dark side, too. Case in point the Spy Ear. Charge the listening device via USB, then put your SIM card inside. Hide it near whomever you wish to spy on, then call the card from another phone. When connected, you can hear everything going on in Spy Ear’s vicinity.
enemies are too cheap to shell out the $85 USD. AC adapter also included.
