SAN FRANCISCO - - September 30, 2004 - LDW Software, a top producer of real-time games and simulations for Palm OS and Pocket PC devices has received the 2005 Parents' Choice Recommended Award for Village Sim. This Award signifies approval and, even beyond that, thorough recommendation for
reasons of production, appeal and fulfillment of its clear intent.
Village Sim was rated suitable for players aged 6 & Up by the Foundation. The game begins with a handful of people who have crash-landed on an island where they find a bush full of food, a few huts to sleep in, a place to put their food, and a table upon which to conduct scientific research. The point of the game is to build an island society.
"Village Sim, made by Last Day of Work, is a must have for fans of simulation games." stated the review from the Parents’ Choice Foundation. "Although simulation games have been around in one format or another for decades, this offering stands out in the crowd. The graphics, music, and sound effects are exceptionally good. Instructions are clear and play is easy, even for 6 year olds.
“We are honored to have received the parent's choice recommendation for Village Sim”, says Arthur Humphrey, CEO of Last Day of Work, “We consider this an important award because there is a great need for software and entertainment choices that are suitable and beneficial to children and young adults.”
