17 Games Like Village Life

Games Like Village Life Our assortment of games like Village Life features other titles where you'll create a dream village for your own virtual people to call home.

Village Life was a popular experience on Facebook, iOS and Android with tens of millions of players worldwide across these game versions. Focused on taking your humble villagers from baby to adult players were in charge of providing all the facilities they need, helping them find love and eventually starting the cycle again. This gameplay cycle required players to meet needs such as food, water and buildings which all translated to a thriving and happy village which eventually unlocked additional land space.

In addition to this core simulation loop Village Life also featured a number of story elements which were constantly updated to provide players with new stories to explore. Like other games in this genre building up your village was a steady process that required careful management of both your time and resources with efficient management of your villager tasks. With energy limitations that are traditional in freemium games players could not always do it all which meant careful management was the key to expanding your village faster than others.

This list of games like Village Life will challenge your management abilities as you take a village, resort, business or small town from small beginnings into a large, thriving and self-sufficient community.
