05th March 2014

Manchester UK, 5th March 2014 – Playdemic’s hit Village Life, available on iOS and Facebook, is celebrating the fact that it’s about to hit the milestone of 50 million villagers by giving one lucky player 50,000 Gems – the equivalent of $2,000!

Since its launch in November 2013, Village Life has had over 20 million installs on Facebook and iOS, becoming one of the top grossing games on Facebook and recently hitting the Top 15 Grossing iPad Apps in the UK.

In Village Life, players nurture their villagers from the moment they are born, taking care of their needs and guiding them through life’s big events including first date, marriage, childbirth and old age. Village Life is the first social game where characters look to have relationships and children with other players’ villagers, inheriting physical attributes and skills from their parents.

Now the game has surpassed the 49 million villager mark, Playdemic have decided to give the player with the 50 millionth villager a fantastic prize of 50,000 Gems.

Paul Gouge, CEO of Playdemic said: “The fans have made Village Life such a hit on Facebook and iOS so we thought there would be no better way to celebrate hitting the landmark of 50 million villagers than by giving away a prize never-before-seen in Village Life. Who knows how big the prize will be when we hit the 100 millionth villager mark?!”
