Family Village is the first Facebook game from Funium, a company from Salt Lake City, and allows you to discover unknown ancestors and interesting facts about each one.
In Family Village, you’ll build out your actual family tree, and then immigrate those family members into a village you design. In your village, you assign your ancestors jobs to earn money for your town to grow. You can buy homes, cars, pets, and decorations from the time in which your ancestors lived. You can even buy monuments that show off your unique ancestral heritage.
As your village grows, Funium will be working behind the scenes to find family connections and interesting documents such as newspaper articles, yearbook photos, census records, marriage records, maps and many other interesting items that will allow you to know much more about your family. You will be able to save these documents in your library and share them with other friends and family as you wish.
As you play the game you may discover previously unknown family members from past generations or living relatives that might live down the street or in some distant land. This is just the beginning. We have many more features or angles we will reveal as the game grows with millions of happy people discovering family members and unique historical documents.
Family Village seems promising or at least gets you curious about they might find about your family, from the gaming perspective, its a little like a simplified “SIMs”, you have to take care of your family members, give them a home, assign them a job, and keep them happy. As they evolve, they will demand different thinks, a better house, job, etc…
Mainly a light game, that might have some more deep interest on the history family tree.
“This is a game…It’s meant to be fun. I don’t want family history to be like preparing taxes. I’d like people to be excited about it. Wake up to see if a new historical document is waiting for them or a new ancestor is presented.”
Funium CEO Jeff Wells
